Student Council Kindness

Last week, one of our younger students had glasses on in the playground. Somehow one of the lenses fell out into the woodchips. Some of our  student council members were outside at the time, and decided to help look for the lens. If you know how many woodchips are on the playground, you know that it was a major undertaking to go through them to find the lens.  These amazing kids found the missing lens and returned it to the student.  What great examples of kindness and perseverance these students exemplified. Thank you for being positive role models for all of us.

Ice Cream Sandwich STEM

6th graders used their knowledge of insulators to attempt to insulate ice cream sandwiches in pencil boxes. These stayed outside of the freezer for 3 hours in the insulated boxes. Sadly, none of the groups reached success as each were mushy after 3 hours, but it was a great STEM learning experience.
