Energy Systems
Posted on October 25, 2019

The 8th graders have taken what they've learned throughout our Harnessing Human Energy Unit in order to create their own systems of energy in which they had to find to a way to take kinetic energy and convert it to electric energy for rescue workers to use in the field. Students worked innovatively and collaboratively to submit amazing models!

Exploring Energy Sources
Posted on September 24, 2019
Students got the opportunity to work collaboratively and explore energy sources and how energy is transferred within a system. 
Reading Time with TK
Posted on September 20, 2019
The 8th graders and the TK have officially made Friday time BUDDY TIME. Buddies get to know one another, read books, color, and play together. The TK scholars have the older buddies to look up to and the 8th graders learn about responsibility and how to be mentors.

Harnessing Human Energy
Posted on September 9, 2019
The 8th graders have begun their first unit on Harnessing Human Energy where students assume the role of student energy scientists in order to help a team of rescue workers find a way to get energy to the batteries in their equipment during rescue missions. To do so, students learn about potential and kinetic energy, energy conversions, and energy transformations.
Profile of a Scientist
Posted on September 6, 2019
To kick of science this year, the 7th and 8th graders were asked to draw what a scientist looked like to them. It was interesting to see common themes across the classes: a lab coat, safety goggles, male, etc. To break down stereotypes of what a scientist is "supposed to look like," students conducted mini research projects on different disciplines of science and presented them to the class.
Pep Rally with our Buddies
Posted on August 30, 2019
Today marks our very first Pep Rally with our TK buddies! The 8th grade Bruins make excellent role models for our youngest scholars. I can't wait to see their buddy relationship develop throughout the year. 

Welcome Back!
