Sometimes we are fortunate enough to have a parent who will enrich our programs. The Montano family has been enriching our 4th grade unit on air pressure for about six years.
When their children were pre-schoolers, they would bring a hot air balloon and take the little ones up in the tethered ballon. When their children reached 4th grade, Mr. Montano would discuss the Bernoulli principle, among other features of air pressure.
His youngest child graduated last year, but he graciously came back to assist us this year. St. James is blessed with some outstanding and generous families.
