FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL

On behalf of the Fernwood faculty and staff, we would like to wish everyone a pleasant and safe summer. This year brought on unimaginable challenges that tested our resolve as a school community. We all persevered and crossed the finish line together. To our 8th Grade students, good luck in your continuing academic career. We are all proud of your efforts and the leadership you provided to our younger students.

Wave Machine

8th grade students were able to go into the lab for the first time this year! Ms. Ryan's 8th grade science classes made waves out of gummy candy, skewers and duct tape. Students in person narrated their activity for their virtual classmates. Virtual students were given instructions and options to try it at home.​ We will connect all the waves the students made at the 8th grade picnic to see if we can transfer the wave from one end to another.

Celtic Knot Interlace Project

After completing their individual Celtic Knot/Interlace Project, 7th grade Art students got to work outside and on a much larger scale to create Chalk Art. They made templates, traced them symmetrically and added chalk and water with a paintbrush. Their artwork is not permanent but turned out AMAZING!!!

Telephone Activity

The students in Gold Team made telephones using paper cups and string to show how sound waves travel. They were so amazed that the phones actually worked.

Duck Project

Our duck projects were a huge success, in person and virtual! 6th graders did an amazing job creating a room (or even house) for their ducks. The students also had fun presenting their projects to all of the other students on the Orange 2 team. What a great way to end such a crazy year!
