Rocket Day at Francis Wyman

Thank you to the Grade 4 Team at Francis Wyman for their invitation to their Rocket Day.  It was my first Rocket Day experience in Burlington.  The weather could not have been better for launch.  I had the pleasure of almost seeing a space shuttle launch this summer (a thunder storm scrubbed the launch in the last 20 minutes).  The excitement at Francis Wyman was no less palpable.

Another thank you to John Papadonis and Wendy Pavlicek from the Burlington Science Center.  Rocket Day has become such an embedded part of our elementary experience that it is easy to forget how special this day is in the lives of our students.
