100th Day STEM Activity

Submitted by corallee.findlay on Wed, 01/31/2018 - 22:03

Students were given 100 index cards and 100 cm of tape. They had to use these items to build a tower in 30 minutes. The tower that could hold the most weight won. We also had a 100 piece puzzle challenge. The group that could finish the puzzle the quickest won a prize. The students then wrote autobiographies about themselves, from the ages of 1 to 100. They had to make up some of the information for later on in their life. It's funny to see the things the students wrote. They were also given a picture of themselves that have been aged to make them look older.

Students in Mrs. Elliott's class engineered robots (i.e. Scribble Bots) to learn the complexity of creating a robot. The students will then decide what type of robot (humanoid or the Rosie type robot) they want in their home.

Mrs. Russell Receives PEAK Award

Submitted by corallee.findlay on Mon, 01/22/2018 - 21:37

“Amy’s students are a priority. She takes the time to collect academic and behavior data on each student and formulates a plan in the first few weeks of school. She consistently meets the needs of every student in her class and will research and find materials to meet those needs. Parents appreciate that she communicates daily if needed and responds to their questions and concerns quickly. Amy also serves on the School Community Council and offers valuable teacher input to help the parents understand the needs of our school and celebrate the great things we are doing.
