Great Job First Graders!!!
In honor of the super performance of Scammon's first graders in reading tons and tons of books, Ms. Weaver and Ms. Burgos climbed on our school's roof (not an easy task) and then had their hair dyed by the first graders. Great job first graders on both reading books and dyeing hair!!!
Mr. Wozniak & Tone-Aires
We all know Mr. Wozniak is a great teacher, but did you know he a musician/producer as well? Listen to two songs from his band's singles album Reminiscing Old Times. It is interesting how similar polka music is to Mexican norteño music. Of course, there is a reason for this. I will leave it to you to find the reason.

Mr. and Mrs. Barcham looked sensational dressed in the festive clothing of Assyria (modern day Iraq). Did you know that the Assyrians invented the wheel and the battering ram, were the first to divide a circle into 360 degrees, developed the concept of latitude and longitude, may have developed the first telescope, opened the first formal school, and created the first system of writing? Check back for more pictures.
