Last week the K-3rd grade students were able to see and talk with Miss Sheila Brandt who is currently in the Czech Republic working in a missionary school. She was MVCA's 2nd/3rd grade teacher last year. The internet software Skype was used to actually see her classroom and ask her questions about her day. She was just ending her school day at 3:40pm while we were just beginning at 8:40am. The Lord has surely blessed us with technology allowing us to stay close to a much loved and dearly missed friend.

The women of the American Legion Auxiliary were at MVCA on Tuesday, November 9th to present the 3rd graders with their dictionaries. These dictionaries are awesome because they are not just a reference for spelling and definitions, but also for amazing facts about presidents, states, and the the longest word in the world! Hmmm...will this word be on the spelling test for next week?

The 2nd/3rd grade class sampled a variety of apples Tuesday afternoon to determine their favorite and their least favorite. Here are the results:
Favorite: Granny Smith
Why? "It was very sour." "It gives you a WOW!" "It gives you a WOW flavor." "It was sour and good."
Why? "They were crispy and sweet."
Least Favorite: Golden Delicious
Why? "It was sweet, but the inside was very FUZZY and too soft."
