The Eighth grade English classes studied folklore to write and publish their own tales. Last week they visited the elementary and shared them with a few of our classes during Library.
First grade celebrated the snow flurries on Friday in different ways! First, they had a "snow ball fight" with their current trick words and words of the day from Fundations. The kiddos had to read their words, then crumbled them to play. After playing, they had to pick up a snow ball and read the new word. Then, they made exploding snowmen. They watched the chemical reaction created by baking soda and vinegar inflate their snowmen!
In honor of Women's History Month, Miss Pauling's friends read about the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We learned that she fought for equal rights for women and men of all races. To represent her time in the court system, we made our own scales of justice! The kiddos built a scale out of a hanger, cups, yarn, a ruler, and tape. Before building, they had to create and sketch a plan for all of the materials. Then, they made predictions about how many tokens a classroom item would weigh. We then tested how many actual tokens would balance the scale. Lastly, they subtracted to find the difference between the two.
An amazing group of our high school students traveled to Harrisburg to see a stage production of "The Diary of Anne Frank" and hear from a Holocaust speaker, Lillian Rappaport. Not only did they choose to participate on their day off, but they represented Greenwood exceptionally well from start to finish. Not pictured are the awesome faculty and staff who accompanied the students today.
Mrs. Nastasi’s freshman English classes hosted a career fair, highlighting their research into a career they would like to pursue in the future. The fair was open for students and teachers to visit and ask questions throughout the day. Student-created projects included live presentations, videos, brochures, infographics, posters, and websites.

2nd grade After School Adventure assembled, decorated and created a propellor with a rubber band to move their boat through water! Success! Some, backward success!
Today first grade got to listen to Mrs. Comp read "Oh the Places You'll Go". She talked about how everyone has the power to move mountains inside of them! After reading, the kiddos recreated the hot air balloons from the book. On the basket, they wrote about their goals and places they dream to reach.
