Dr. Seuss on the Loose

Regional Spelling Bee
Congratulations, Jonah Stone and Glavin Lubinski!

Glavin made it through the fourth round and Jonah was sixth overall!  
       
Grade 5 Science
Parent Leads a Lesson
Mrs. Friemark's fifth graders were privileged to have Mrs. Angela Johnston lead science class in a simple machine exploration experiment. Students constructed inclined planes (ski jumps and roller coasters) and explored angles at which a marble could travel and land in a cup. 

Grade 6 Math
Pi Day Activities
Sixth graders recognized Pi Day in Mrs. Grossman's and Mrs. Zaddack's classrooms.  They enjoyed measuring, and munching, a variety of circles. 

Grade 7 Writers
Women in STEM
Four seventh grade students in Mrs. Wilson's English Language Arts chose to use their writing skills to honor contributions women had made in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This was an optional project that these four students chose to tackle and stretch their thinking and talents!  Great job, Cadence, Caiden, Renna and Devan.

Grade 8 Career Fair
"Your Future Live"
Eighth grade students attended the career expo "Your Future Live" presented by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce at the Fox Cities Exhibition Center. Students participated in many hands-on learning activities and had the opportunity to explore career options from the 16 career clusters!
              
Bergstrom Mahler Museum
Glass Making
Mrs. Nelson took 18 High School students to the Bergstrom Mahler Museum of Glass for a glass workshop day. Students were introduced to "hot" glass and learned about lamp working, as well as "cold" glass where they created some fused glass pieces. Their work will be on display at Bergstrom's art gallery through March.
      
 
Student Projects
Frozen Family Movie Night
Making Connections
Crowns for a Cause is an independent High School project created by Haley Lewallen.  The 10 princes and princesses were at Parkview School hoping to bring community awareness to positive mental health.  Autographs, photos, games, and raffle baskets preceded the showing of the movie Frozen.   

Post-Secondary Career Fair
Community Connections
Making plans for the future was never this easy thanks to the New London High School Post-Secondary and Career Fair! Private colleges, UW colleges, military options, specialty schools, technical colleges, apprenticeships, job opportunities and out-of-state colleges all made appearances. Thanks to all who participated and made this such a success!

Making Connections
