February 29, 2016 is Rare Disease Day. Although Dup15q is a chromosomal anomaly, rather than a “rare disease,” The Dup15q Alliance is celebrating this day by asking supporters to show their support by wearing blue! Seward Elementary School Student Leadership Team has formed a committee to support this cause (to honor/support a classmate with Dup15q) and will be posting information asking all students and staff to wear blue on Monday, February 29th. For more information contact Ms. S., or

WORD OF THE DAY: series n. Definition: 1. a group or a number of related or similar things, events, etc., arranged or occurring in temporal, spatial, or other order or succession; sequence. 2. a number of games, contests, or sporting events, with the same participants, considered as a unit. Example: The tournament is made up of a series of games. Synonyms: progression, tendency

INTERESTING FACT: The pleasant smell after a rain comes from an odor called “petrichor” and ozone. During dry periods, some plants secrete oils that are released in the air when it rains. This, mixed with chemicals released by soil bacteria called actinomycetes, produce the petrichor smell. For the other smell, lightning can split oxygen and nitrogen molecules- they form nitric oxide, and then this combines with other chemicals making ozone. (thank you, Nurse Heather!)
