Winter Break

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.

 

 

Celebrating Exhibition.

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.

 

Visit from Salem Sound Coastwatch

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!
