Math All Day (MAD)... Fun math challenges using construction activities...
A Season of Giving...
Hello NACS family, It’s that time of year again when we find ourselves scratching our heads and wondering which of our family members will have the honor of hosting this year’s Thanksgiving feast. While we are making plans and searching our cookbooks for the latest turkey recipe, let us also take some time to think of those who are less fortunate than we are. One way to do that is by taking part in NACS annual Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Child Drive. This amazing gift-giving program is led by Mrs. Jennie Carballo. This is how it works… One, you can pack your own shoe box with items a child would like to get for Christmas. Or two, you can donate $10 to send a shoe box packed by someone else. Just remember NOT to pack these items: candy, toothpaste, gum, used or damaged items, scary or war-related items (such as guns, knives, or military figures), chocolate or food, seeds, fruit rolls or other fruit snacks, drink mixes (powdered or liquid), liquids or lotions, medications or vitamins, breakable items (such as snow globes or glass containers) and aerosol cans. The last day for turning in your shoe box of items is November 17th.
After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of the Samaritan’s Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.
October went so fast... Here are a few highlights that must be mentioned: Math All Day (MAD) — a Day of Math Challenges Dr. Mosby’s first and second grade class celebrated Math All Day (MAD), a Day of Math challenges. Here’s a recap of the day in her own words:
“1st and 2nd graders participated in our first (MAD) Math All Day activities. Our theme was construction as we were able to construct and build during the different challenges. The students were engaged in 8 different math challenges that included building family facts using Styrofoam cups, making 3D shapes using playdough and toothpicks and counting the vertex and sides of each shape. They also were introduced to measuring using inches and centimeters, using Legos to build math bonds to find the unknown numbers. Students also were able to interpret data from graphs and make math towers using snap cubes. One of their most favorite challenges was when they were able to create structures with different math shapes. We had such a wonderful day of learning!”
I must say, this is one day I wish I was in first or second grade. Awesome, Dr. Mosby! We are truly blessed to have you on our team!
Middle School Goes to IMAG
The middle school students had a wonderful time at the History of Science Center on Friday. They observed some cool experiments, participated in exhibits, watched the Great White in action through 3D glasses, and dissected a squid. They had a wonderful time!
