The Heartland is a Wonderful Place to Live

Buddy Pack Matching Challenge Update

The Character Education Theme for 2018-2019 in the elementary is "Character is doing the right thing when nobody is looking."  We just finished celebrating Character Education Week and were able to help several local agencies in our community with donations provided by students and staff.  A local anonymous donor provided $250.00 in a cash donation for the Buddy Pack and as the motto says, they were doing the right thing when nobody was looking.  The grand total given to the Buddy Pack Program was $466.00.  Thank you all for your generosity.

Short week, Big Fun in Transitional Kindergarten!

With all of the snow days at the beginning of last week, we had a very short week of only two days last week. To top it off, our first day back was February 14, Valentine's Day.  With it being a short week and with mother nature being unpredictable, we celebrated Valentine's day on the 14th and celebrated our 100th day of school a little early on the 15th. What a way to make the most of the short week!  Our transitional Kindergarten class enjoyed classroom parties both days and learned with many fun hands-on activities!  The 100th day of school is actually February 19th, but we didn't want to take any chances with the way the weather has been. We hope you enjoy our pictures of all our fun activities!

Middle School Valentine's Dance Royalty Crowned

With around 120 students in attendance, the Middle School commons was hopping with lots of happy teenagers ready to burn off some winter steam.  The Valentine's dance is usually a favorite because of the royalty that gets crowned.  Each class nominates 3 boys and 3 girls and then those candidates are voted on during lunch for the chance to be dubbed "The Royals." This year's contestants for Duke and Duchess in the 6th grade were Brock M., Case P., Kaden C., Trinity A., Iris W., and Macie H. Congratulation to Kaden C., and Macie H. for being crowned 6th-grade Royalty.  The 7th-graders nominated were Johnathan F., Trace H., Gavin K., Kenadie N., Zayda L., and Cora H. Congratulations to Gavin and Cora for accepting the honor of Prince and Princess.  The 8th-grade . . .

Students Apply New Concept

What do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber? Nothing. You can't cross a vector and a scalar. While the joke above is simply a play on words, Putnam County freshmen physical science students are likely able to explain it now.  Mr. Watt’s physical science classes have switched from a focus on introductory chemistry principles to a focus on introductory physics principles.  Students have learned the difference between a scalar quantity (a measurement with only size, but not direction) and a vector quantity (a measurement that includes size and direction relative to a point of origin). The students are handling the new concepts with a high degree of proficiency, and are learning new ways to utilize their scientific calculators.
