SuccessMaker is an innovative, balanced educational computer program that incorporates common core standards and on­going assessment into a powerful results-driven learning system. This system offers intensive, interactive learning activities in language arts and mathematics. It provides teachers with immediate, on­going feedback regarding student progress; and guides teacher instruction based on the unique academic needs of the child.

8. News from the Classroom

The Raider Report

St. Paul News

Kindergarten - Video

Kindergarten performed a play called, " Mox's Shop". The kindergarteners directed themselves with cue cards. They read the play together as a group; and acted out the story.


Everyone, just like in the workforce, had a very important job in the play: directing the start of the play, cueing readers, reading the lines, acting out the story line, signaling the end of the play, and finally, throwing flowers to the actors.


Sixth grade students collaborated with kindergarten in filming of the play. The video will be available on our school website very soon.


A special thanks goes out to Alyssa Keene and Madison Wilson for making production possible!


First Grade

First Grade science experiment: we made predictions about what would happen if their teacher microwaved a bar of Ivory soap. Then we actually did to see if our predictions were correct. We predicted that the soap would melt but it actually bubbled up and made it look like a soap cloud.

Middle School Language Arts

The 7th and 8th grades are finishing the final episode of St. Paul News. It will culminate in a dance competition that will most likely be won by Adyson Medley.


The 6th grade has created presentations and handouts explaining different grammar concepts.

Middle School Science

The sixth grade is doing a project about space exploration.


The seventh graders are working on presentations about a specific fish, amphibian and reptile.

Library

Amiee Swift from the Louisville Free Public Library will be here on Tuesday, May 21st, to talk with us about the summer reading program.



9. Five Things You Need to Know About Summer Movies, Jason Collins, iBeetle, New Books, and More


Iron Man 3 marks the start of summer blockbuster season, and we're looking ahead at all the family-targeted movies set for release over the next few months. We also navigated kids' inquiries about the personal life of a professional athlete, marveled over the marriage of Apple and cars (yes, cars!), and took part in national Screen-Free week ... or not.
