Hour of Code PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 09 December 2014 20:22

This week all 7th graders participated in the "Hour of Code" project, in which each of them wrote their (likely) first computer code, all for a full hour.  The idea is that there is a critical shortage of software engineers, so students work with fun and engaging tutorials, hopefully learning that it's something they might like to pursue further.  They really do have a good time.


Of note is that upperclassmen from Computer Programming and Computer Science classes volunteered to be "guides" for the hour.  A total of 14 upperclassmen and 70 middle schoolers participated.  Special thanks to Melissa Fellows for inviting the initiative into her science classes.

Chinese Wildlife Conservationist Meets with MS & HS Students PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 17 November 2014 14:38

Zhuo Qiang ("Simba"), a Chinese wildlife conservationist who works in Kenya met with many of our students recently.  He presented his work with lions and other endangered wildlife.  He goes by the name Simba, which is Swahili for lion.  It was his dream as a young boy to work with lions in Africa and he is now the founder of the Mara Conservation Fund and he gives lectures around the world at universities including Beijing University, Oxford University and the University of Vermont. Simba is the first Chinese wildlife conservationist working in Africa and it is part of his mission to educate others on the importance of lions, elephants and rhinos to the ecosystem.  We viewed parts of an upcoming Animal Planet documentary featuring Yao Ming that will air on Tuesday, November 18 at 10pm and learned about the Mara Conservation's anti-poaching efforts, conservation work and educational programs.  At the end, students answered Simba's questions and students had the opportunity to ask Simba questions about his life and work in Kenya.

Brother Kennedy from Nairobi, Kenya PDF Print E-mail

Brother Kennedy of Nairobi, KenyaBrother Kennedy from St. Charles Lwanga Children Centre Secondary School in Nairobi, Kenya spoke to high school and middle school students in the library.  He is the founder and principal of the St. Charles School for orphans and street children.  Brother Kennedy showed a video of his school that gave our students a view into the classrooms, dormitories and gardens at his school.  We learned what a typical day is like for students at St. Charles where they study English, Swahili, Geography and Religious Studies.  We learned about the challenges the school and students are facing.  John Hiers visited St. Charles this past summer and he explained that the school would like to have a greenhouse like our school has so that they can grow more of their own food like the Horticulture students do here.  Students in Mrs. Bristow's class were motivated to start a fundraiser and donation jars will be located around the school including the library and cafeterias.  If you would like more information about St. Charles School, please visit www.lwangachildren.com.

Locally Grown! PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 31 October 2014 12:01

Students from the new Locally Grown class traveled to Bridgewater Village School to teach the kindergartners there about the importance of eating the rainbow. Using an Upper Valley Farm to School Harvest Lesson, these students learned about how eating foods of all different colors benefits every part of your body. After the lesson that included an art project, students tasted spring rolls made with beets, carrots, cabbage, and kale. All the students tried the new foods and one little boy said ' My mouth is saying no, but my body is saying yes because it's good for me!'. Students plan to carry out Harvest Lessons several times a semester.
