I know you will be supportive during her transition year. Also on the team are Linda Iacabone, Director of the Preschool, Karen Surabian, Assistant principal and myself, Jim Deveney as Associate Principal.

Chemical Reactions, Inertia, and Sound Energy

 

Chemical Reactions, Inertia, and Sound Energy

Fifth grade students were busy this past winter learning about chemical reactions, inertia, and sound energy. They made play dough to learn about chemical reactions. The fun continued when students went into creative mode and made sculptures. Inertia became exciting when students tried to pull an index card stacked with cubes from the top of an open jar. Next, they applied their knowledge of sound energy by creating their own musical instruments and demonstrating high and low pitches. Check out their video. Who thought science could be so exciting?

Seventh Grade Bacteria Growth Lab

Events

Seventh Grade Bacteria Growth Lab Seventh Grade Bacteria Growth Lab

The seventh grade used burners and agar to grow their own bacteria. We melted down the agar with water and created a gelatinous substance. We poured that into a Petri dish and let it set over night. The next day we took cotton swabs and swabbed any surface that has bacteria on it! (Floor, hands, shoes, mouths, etc) They took the swab and swirled it into the gelatinous agar! We put the Petri Dish with the sample in a warm dark place and watched the bacteria grow!

Anti-Bullying Program

Events

 Anti-Bullying Program

Power of One Bullying Program

The “Power of One” is a bullying prevention program that challenges students to take an active approach in stopping this behavior.  On November 14th the students at Saint Joseph School were active participants in role playing designed to create scenarios to mirror situations they may find themselves in.  During the assembly examples of physical and verbal bullying were addressed through short skits in which the students were actively involved.  The “dPower of One” program empowers the students to identify what bullying looks like and how they can make a difference in the way they respond to these situations.  Using the “Power of One” they learned to react to bullies by ignoring them, telling them to stop or by telling a teacher.  It was an educational opportunity for our students that raises awareness of such an important issue.

Pippi Longstocking

On November 12th, grades two and three were able to see the performance of Pippi Longstocking at the Arlington Center for the Arts. Arlington Children’s Theater put on a magnificent show of a very well loved children’s book. Both grades read the story in school, and being able to see it come to life was a lot of fun for all involved. Students had the opportunity to ask questions to the cast and directors of the play about the process of making a play a reality. Students were then able to come back to school and compare the differences and similarities of the book and the play.
