Looking back at our spooky science, experiments and dressing up as our favorite book characters, everyone had a blast! From making creepy potions to conducting electrifying experiments, and having our favorite book characters come to life, it was a fun filled day.
Learning about the Holocaust
To introduce background knowledge before reading The Diary of Anne Frank, 8th grade students in Mrs. Harter's, Mrs. Sprys's, Mrs. Griner's, and Mr. Donnelly's ELA classes at Callahan Middle School completed a Holocaust Placemat Activity using multiple mediums with information about that historical time frame. Students read poems, a newspaper article, an infographic, and a collage of propaganda posters and gathered information to create a thesis statement to answer a writing prompt.
Celebrating their Principal
Nassau County Community School celebrated National Principal Month by giving Mr. Brown thank you notes from the students and cupcakes during lunch.
Students who earned at least ½ credit during the 1st 9 weeks were rewarded with breakfast from T-Ray's at Nassau County Community School. Mr. Brown, the Principal of NCCS, facilitated a discussion with these students, where they were given an opportunity to provide feedback on what is working well for them and what could be improved.

The Senior Beta students at Hilliard Middle Senior High School showed their appreciation towards the ESE department by gifting them with Coke and Hershey Bars on Make a Difference Monday. They expressed their gratitude towards the department for their hard work and hoped that they enjoyed their sweet treats.🎃🥤🍫
Stay tuned for their upcoming Make a Difference Monday event.
Eye Love Math
Mrs. Fancher's second-grade students at Wildlight Elementary School demonstrated their love for math by integrating the standard algorithm of addition with Halloween-themed fun! The exercise involved selecting two monster eyes, each marked with a two-digit number, from a slimy substance. The students then wrote the numbers on their monster place value mats and solved the addition problem using the standard algorithm. The activity proved to be monstrously enjoyable for the students!
The students and staff at Yulee Middle School celebrated a great week of Spirit to include a spirit days, a Pep Rally, Football Game, Royalty Court, and a dance. We had great participation, with students and staff celebrating our school community. Throughout the week, we dressed to impress: Tuesday: School Spirit Green and Gold, Wednesday: Pink Out-Breast Cancer Awareness, Thursday: Throwback Thursday/Decades Day, Friday: Neon Day. We had a great week.
As a part of their science curriculum, the 4th-grade students in Mrs. Page's class at Emma Love Hardee conducted an experiment to understand erosion and weathering using cookies, straws, water, and toothpicks. The students used the straws to simulate wind, the toothpicks to represent plants and animals, and water droplets as rain to recreate various weather factors. The purpose of the experiment was to observe the effects of weathering and erosion on the cookies.
