JOKE OF THE WEEK ALTERNATIVE
Preamble: Drake is in the “Things that Fly” unified arts elective class. On the day this video was taken he and his friends were assembling parachutes and straws were available for the construction process. A bundle of straws were temporarily repurposed in a unique way. This activity was not endorsed by the teachers but proved interesting to view video.
It looks like this morning is the best time to be outside for recess.
ALL OPEN DOORS PROGRAMS ARE FULL FOR SESSION 5!
For planning purposes when we return from our break:

PICTURES AND REPORTS
MRUSD SCHOOL BOARD MEETING - INTERNSHIPS
Because the school board met at St. Albans City School, there was an opportunity to highlight learning activities taking place at the school. Ms. Cavallo chose to showcase three programs that offer internship experiences within the school and during the school day. Sample students stood up with their supervisors and talked about what they do in their internships and how they feel about their work and learning. Colby talked about working in Mr. Barker's classroom with pre-kindergarteners multiple days each week. He plans to become an early educator once he finishes college. Finn, a 2nd grader, talked about being a very active intern in the makerspace with Ms. Borst. And finally, Will and Megan talked about creating products to sell in the HOPE (Hands on practical education) program. A new CNC (computer numerically controlled) machine for processing wood was demonstrated. LINK TO A DOZEN PICTURES
