Congratulations to the students that were nominated in November for Good Character. These students displayed the important values of Respect, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship that we all look for in promoting a positive school environment . A good time was had by all at a celebratory breakfast! 


Mrs. Manago's 5th grade class has been busy creating these models and posters of all the things they learned in their science unit.  They used clay, jello, beads, pasta, pipe cleaners, and other items to create a human skeleton, the plant cell, the animal cell, the eye, and many others.  The lesson culminated with a presentation of the project to explain what it is and it's purpose.

Congratulations to our Optimist Youth of the Month -- Melanie Grom!!  Great job Melanie!



Building Bridges


Our 6th grade science classes worked on a STEM Lab exploring Civil Engineer careers (21st Century Skills). The students used K'Nex Kits to explore bridge building. Then they designed and built their own bridges out of straws and tape. Then the bridges were tested and students analyzed and evaluated the strength of their bridge. They also solved a real-world engineering problem that engineers are facing with the Bayonne Bridge in Hudson County.


Thank you Kearny Applebees for donating the straws! 

Character Counts!
