Lutz fifth grade students have been studying sound transmission. Using chrome books students first researched how sound travels
through different mediums and at specific speeds. Next they experimented using different states of matter and found that sound
travels the fastest through solids. Students learned that sound cannot travel through empty space or vacuums.
They also discovered that the number of vibrations of a sound directly correlates to the pitch of a sound. Orchestra students
then shared how adjusting the length of their strings affected their instrument's pitch.

Atkinson’s Walk to School Day
As a part of Safe Routes to School, the Walk to School
Day event at Atkinson was designed to educate and
promote pedestrian safety. Each classroom was given a
Walking Safety Lesson, as well as an explanation of Walk
to School Day. Led by high school students in the LINK
program, 64 students participated in the walking groups.
This event will take place at other elementary schools in
the near future. Stay tuned for more details and remember,
BE SAFE on the Sidewalks! Pictured at right: Atkinson
students participate in their Walk to School Day event.
Please help our children walk to
and from school safely by keeping
your sidewalks free of snow and ice.
