PHOTOS FROM THIS WEEK
Mrs. Cerda’s class is participating in the Stock Market Game with her fifth grade students.  The Stock Market Game  is an online simulation of the global  markets geared for grades 4-12 to introduce them to  economics, investing and personal finance, and prepares them for financially independent futures.   Mr. Patterson was a guest speaker and talked to the students about stock, bonds and mutual funds.  This enabled them to enter their first trade in the game.

Third graders had Robolab with Mrs. Wada this week.  They learned about kinetic and potential energy.  They also discussed energy alternatives and created a ferris wheel run by solar power. It was wonderful to have help from the WatchD.O.G.S. for this activity!

CAMPUS NEWS
STUDENT HOLIDAY ON MONDAY
Round Rock ISD will observe Monday, October 12th as a Student Holiday!  We will miss the students, but are looking forward to a fun day of learning here on campus during staff development.

DENIM DRIVE
Our fourth grade sponsored Denim Drive begins on Tuesday, October 13th.  Please recycle gently used or new denim jeans and jackets.  Grade level collection baskets will be located in the main hallway until Friday, October 23rd.  All denim will be donated to the RRISD Clothes Closet as part of this Project Based Learning experience.  Thanks for helping us continue our tradition of generosity at CCE!

BATTERY RECYCLING PROGRAM
GIRL SCOUT TROOP 2533 (A Brownie troop of 2nd grade girls) lead the charge in our Battery Recycling Program. Batteries of ALL types and reasonable size (NO car batteries!) are collected.  Batteries leech many dangerous products into the soil when sent to landfills!  Please ask your family, friends, and neighbors to participate in this very worthwhile endeavor.  There is a small collection box in the school office and a large collection box in the hallway next to the Clothes Closet donation bin.  Please help us REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!  

VOLUNTEER NEEDED
Do you like fish? Are you knowledgeable about fish aquarium maintenance?  We are looking for a volunteer who will help maintain the office fish aquarium.  It would only require about one hour of your time per month.  Please contact Laura Lewis @ Laura_Lewis@roundrockisd.org if you are interested.  

REMINDERS
REFLECTIONS
Reflections has encouraged millions of students to express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts.  Students may create and submit works of art in six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography and visual arts.  Multiple entries within a single arts category is permitted.  We will be accepting submissions until November 20th.  For more information, including rules for each category, please visit http://www.txpta.org/programs/reflections/participate/ or contact Supriya Naidu-Ferris at supriyanaiduferris@yahoo.com.
