Author Carolyn Crimi Offers Students Writing Tips
Children's book author Carolyn Crimi spent some time Thursday morning with Copeland Manor second-graders, offering them writing tips.

She encouraged students to use a "thinking hat" when considering story ideas, keep an idea box to draw from, be prepared to write as many as 12 story drafts, and be prepared to deal with rejection letters, which she called "courage badges."
(Photos are posted on the Copeland Manor school website under photos.)

Science Night
Thank you to all the families who joined us on Science Night. We learned about the Scientific Process after watching a Brain Pop video and then families participated in Science Olympiad activities that put the process into practice. Students learned about simple machines by making catapults. Mini marshmallows were flying all over the cafeteria because students successfully understood force and movement (We're very sorry, Mr. Javier, for the mess we leftJ). Students also created some beautiful music after learning about sound and vibrations. Also, the Copeland cafeteria turned into a barge holding station as students built barges (out of aluminum foil) to hold maximum cargo (pennies). Some students' barges held over 100 pennies. A good time was had by all. Huge thanks to Miss Weaver (who created an Olympic torch), Mrs. Julian, Miss April, Mrs. Edelsberg, and Mrs. Policht. Many thanks to our Libertyville High School students who volunteered to help as well. Special greetings and thanks to Mrs. Schilling, D70 School Board Member, for joining the fun learning.
