Pride in the Tribe
At the end of September we were able to recognize our first group to achieve Student of the Month recognition. Students were recognized at our morning assembly and also treated to a Breakfast of Champions!
In addition, when teachers noticed a student working on demonstrating an aspect of Pride in one of their classrooms, they may receive a Positive Office Referral. Students had fun coming to the office and signing the Pride poster!
What’s happening in the library?
Maker Spaces are all the rage now, so the Nunda building library has joined the movement! Maker Spaces are areas where people can imagine, create, explore, and learn. They can include not only electronics but also low tech materials. The idea is to use your imagination to explore and create.
Because of the limited time that most of the students have to explore the Maker Space, there is usually a pre-set challenge that they can try. We have made predictions using colored water and paper towels, how many drops of water will fit in a variety of sized circles, and different kinds of liquids and their effect on gummy bears. We have worked to make popsicle stick catapults, the longest paper chain using one sheet of paper, and piper cleaner skeletons and pumpkins. Many more challenges are in the works!
If you would like to donate any materials to our Maker Space we are always looking for supplies. Some examples are: craft supplies (decorative stones, gems, glitter, beads), old newspaper, paper towel and toilet paper rolls, rubber bands, scrap fabric, markers, paper towels, and anything else you think we could use to create and explore! You can send any supplies with your student to drop off in the library. Thank you for your support!
