OUR TRIP TO HENRICUS Have you been to Henricus Park? We learned that the Powhatan indian’s number one tool was fire. The women did all the cooking and cleaning, and the men did all the hunting and fishing. Their main crop was corn. They used the deer brain to make their clothing softer. We had a wonderful time at Henricus Park! Interview by Halie, Abby, and Jessica

Do you know about 3rd grade math? Sarah R., Jeahee, and Ashlyn interviewed Mrs. Johnson to find out. In the third grade you receive math books but you cannot write in them. The students have to take their math books home and Mrs. Johnson sometimes gives them worksheets. Also they review doubles plus one and they use word problems all year long for math . Third graders have The Math Hall of Fame. You have to learn your multiplication facts from 0-12. They add and subtract two, three, and four digit numbers. Third grade math sounds awesome!


Have you met the best cook at Clover Hill Elementary? Mrs. Dolan is a great cook. She cooks for over four-hundred to six-hundred students in one day. She gets a lot of help from the other cooks. Ms. Wanda cooks, Rebecca serves the food, Ms. Elssy prepares the salad, Ms.Donna collects the money and Ms. Monica comes two days a week to help them cook. Before she was a great cook she was a stay at home mom and a secretary. She has three kids: a 23 year old, 27 year old and a 10 year old. She also has a Saint Bernard named Gracie. Mrs. Dolan cooks for a lot of people and she enjoys her job. Mrs. Dolan is like the principal of the kitchen, because she is the manager of the kitchen- the one in charge. Mrs. Dolan makes sure the food we eat is healthy for us and that is why she is an amazing cook and person.

Devion and Aiden’s Halloween Party! On October 31st we had a surprise Halloween party. At our party we had lots of tasty treats like cookies with sprinkles, candy corn, tootsie rolls and lollipops. We also did some math at the party. We had to guess how much candy was in a bag without opening it. We discovered that there were 20 pieces of candy in the bag. Also, we made a candy graph. Our Halloween party was awesome because we had a GREAT TIME!

The Courtyard

Do you know what it’s like to be a Principal? Mrs. Hines has been a principal at Clover Hill Elementary for three years. She served as an assistant principal for seven years. Mrs. Hines is a mother of three children along with her wonderful students at Clover Hill Elem.☺ She has many years of schooling at Cali State, Whittier College and VCU! The things she loves about being a principal are working with students, teachers and parents. The hardest thing about her job is working on the weekend and all the hard work that’s brought to her. But she loves her job so it’s worth it! By: Will, Dylan and Antonio

Have you seen our courtyard? There are 3 goldfish in the pond. One of the goldfish has a white face, an orange body, and black spots on its back. The other 2 are just gold. Also, the goldfish get fed in the spring, summer, and fall and they eat nothing during the winter. The goldfish stay by the waterfall which is located in the back of the pond. There is also an algae eater that is white with brown spots. He is the size of a rock and very hard to see. All of the goldfish are 6 years old and the algae eater is 7 years old. There are different types of plants like a butterfly bush, silver mounds, and water lilies and so many more. We would really like to thank Mrs. Dunn for showing around us the courtyard!
