Making Solar Houses

Attributions: 

This week, students in the sixth grade are learning about heat.  As part of the unit, they each made a mini solar house, and will learn about how radiation affects temperature inside the solar house with and without covering the windows.

Anti Bullying Assembly with Bud Jeffries

Last week, students had the privilege to witness one of the strongest men in the world, Bud Jeffries, lift one of their teachers into the air with one hand!  Not only did he do this, but had a heavy bowling ball dropped on his stomach.  Why did he do this?  He did this to emphasize that we can be strong, and not listen to bullies, or become one of them.
