Student Achievement

STEAM Tank Finals

Ms. Zompa's STEAM class competed in the final round of the STEAM Tank finals Friday afternoon. STEAM Tank is a competition where students create solutions to problems they see in the world. Alder's Team MHQ developed an idea for a free website where people can get help and support with mental health concerns. Their presentation was awesome as they each explained the website they built to the virtual judges. The members of the team are pictured below.

Coming Soon! Baby Chicks to Mrs. Molina's Classroom!

Mrs. Molina and her students are studying the lifecycle and wanted to see for themselves, the process of how an egg becomes a chick. They were able to get an incubator donated from an area business and some farm fresh eggs from a staff member to simulate the process in their classroom. The entire process takes about 21 days and they began two weeks ago. We'll keep you posted but it seems we should see some baby chicks in the next few weeks!

Alder held our first post Covid dance this past Friday and it was a fun night! Check out these great shots of how our 6th, 7th , and 8th graders enjoyed their night of friends and dancing!

Kindness Rocks at Alder!!

Take one when you need one, share one with a friend who needs one, or leave one for another! One message at just the right moment can change someone's entire day, outlook, life. This is the mission of "The Kindness Rocks Project" Mrs. Hendrix and her class decided to be a part of it. The "rock garden" is located right outside the main door at Alder. Stop by and take a look, or take a rock if you need one!
