Astronomers in the Making

Second graders at R.C. Waters Elementary have been busy astronomers during the month of October. Students learned about light, shadows, the sun, and the phases of the moon. In addition to the in class instruction and activities, students also completed a moon phase observation log each night at home. The observation log allowed students to witness firsthand how the moon changes as it progresses through its phases and to record their observations, just like a real scientist would do. Second graders also read a fictional mystery titled, The Missing Moon Mystery during this unit. While the story was fiction, it contained many of true and interesting facts about the moon and its phases. Be sure to ask a second grader you know if Bentley Beaver ever solved his missing moon mystery and if he was able to finally host his moon party.

On Monday, Oct. 28, at 11 a.m., dubbed “11 for Devin”, residents, well-wishers, city workers, business owners and others gathered at Adams Street Park to decorate the gazebo with Christmas decorations for Devin. Alejandro “Hondo” Zapata had a big hand in promoting updates on Facebook on Devin’s condition and any events that benefit Devin, his mom Alexis and his family. Zapata, who is a local DJ with many connections to people around Port Clinton and the Port Clinton area and who was also Devin’s baseball coach, was a perfect candidate to broadcast the updates. “I just want to help out anyway possible. I’ve known Alexis since we were little kids. I’ve lost my dad, my mom, and Johnny B; people ask me how I deal with it. I pray. That’s what Devin needs right now is our prayers and support,” said Zapata.
