Every May, the Sidney Glen grounds are transformed into the Kennedy Space Center, with a hundred rockets blasting into space, two at a time. All the sixth graders have the opportunity to make and decorate their own rocket. Then on one afternoon they blast them all off in front of the other students. The conditions were a little questionable today, with moderate to high winds, but mission control gave the go ahead. Every rocket is cheered on by hundreds of students. Most of the rockets landed in neighboring pastures, to be retrieved later by sixth grade teachers. The event has turned into an institution at the school, and students look forward to their day on the launch pad.
