Thank you to all Parents and PTO members for the week of wonderful treats.
These notes from your children were so very touching, and made us feel appreciated for sure!
The Rube Goldberg machines are progressing well. Here are some of the designers and engineers in action!
We finished our unit on dividing fractions this week with a fun rap video reminding us to “Keep Change Flip”
Today we wore our spirit wear in support of the Patriots at the Superbowl.
We recently completed a chapter on adding and subtracting fractions, and have now moved on to multiplying them.
One of our top students at work:
We are wrapping up the year by reconnecting with our mentors. 5th graders will be spending part of today meeting with their 8th grade mentors. Both 8th graders and 5th graders are excited to reconnect and renew their friendships from last year.
We are so proud of our students’ work, and we know you are too. Here are a few highlights from the evening.
The Anatomy of an Exhibition outlines the background material the students have learned, and the steps they went through to develop their water filter design, the testing stage and their experimental results and conclusions.
A big thank you to all parents and guardians for your support of your children’s learning through the first exhibition.
We were excited to have Salem Sound Coastwatch return to MCCPS this year to teach us about “Keeping Water Clean”. Students visited 6 different stations and learned about the locations of our local watersheds, and types of human activity that cause water to become polluted. They discovered how and where our dirty water is cleaned, saw a demonstration of how groundwater collects and can become polluted, then learned about ways we can prevent pollution.
The students were excited to put this learning into practice as they prepare for Exhibition.
Lastly, we like to say a big “Thank You!” to our parent and staff volunteers who helped to make it a wonderful experience for all!
