Thank you to Fair Lawn Clean Communities for sponsoring a visit from The Eyes of the Wild Program! Students met a skunk, chinchilla, baby wallaby, porcupine, and hedgehog! We learned about the importance of keeping our communities clean and taking care of the Earth. We also learned a lot about these unique animals and how they survive. Happy Earth Day!

Thank you to the Westmoreland PTO for bringing The Brain Show Game Show to our school! Students learned the importance of working together to answer trivia questions as a team-and showed off their dancing skills to keep their points! This assembly was a fun and welcomed break from a long month of non-stop instruction and academics. The family fun night brought our families together for some added fun and laughter. THANK YOU, PTO!

Holidays Around the World! Many of our classrooms are learning about how different holidays are celebrated around the World! For example, St Nicholas Day is a favorite holiday celebrated in the country of Germany. On the night of December 5th, children clean and polish their boots and leave them outside their door before going to sleep. The next morning, they find their shoes filled with nuts, candy, and small gifts from St Nicholas. After learning about this holiday, some of our students found candy treats in their shoes too!

Grade 3 STEM: Building Basics Foam Block Tower Challenge In this Type 1 REACH Program, the third grade students are learning about the Engineering Design Process and the forces engineers must consider when building a structure. The students engaged in an engineering challenge to build a foam block structure that is a minimum of 10 inches tall and can withstand an earthquake. Some structures were stronger than others which led to a great discussion about how to make improvements.

Grade 4 STEM: Building a Shelter In this Type 1 REACH Program, the fourth grade students are using the Engineering Design Process to solve real-life problems. Their most recent challenge was to build a water-proof shelter in the Amazon Rainforest with only a few materials. The students worked in groups to design and build their shelters. Each shelter was tested with a spray bottle to determine if they could withstand the weather of the Amazon Rainforest.
