Students in second grade received a take home STEAM Challenge to build a model of a bridge. STEAM Projects combine science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Students were able to use any of the products they had at home to create them and could build their models on their own or with the help of family. We were very excited to have many students participate. The bridges were all very unique and creative. It was great to see kids engaged and excited to apply all that they have learned to complete the challenge and to hear them share them with classmates. We plan on doing other STEAM Challenges in the future and look forward to seeing more student work!
Natchaug School is happy to announce the parent of the year award goes to our very own.... Maria Cordero! Congratulations!
The PBIS Committee held an assembly where the whole school read the book "Those Shoes". At the assembly we talked about wants vs needs and how in the end kindness is the most important. Each student was told that every day they should do one act of kindness. The whole school colored and decorated paper shoes and wrote about ways they could be kind which will be hung in the cafeteria. All teachers who caught a child being kind wrote it up as an award which we annouced at Friday's assembly. Next months assembly will focus on Open Minded.....Stay tuned!
