SAFETY PATROL - run by Mrs. Przestrzelski
Safety Patrol members help to ensure that school rules are followed during arrival and dismissal times. Their presence at key areas of the school grounds during these times helps to keep other students safe and secure. Safety Patrol members also offer their assistance during assemblies and other functions, ensuring that their fellow students follow school rules and procedures.
STUDENT COUNCIL - run by Mr. Jones & Mrs. Weber
Student Council class representatives are elected from grades 3-5 by their peers. Throughout the year, the representatives have an active role in the important decisions that Student Council makes. Student Council exists to encourage leadership skills, responsibility, and a sense of community within the school. Fundraisers, charity events, theme days, and recycling are just some of the endeavors that Student Council undertakes.
Student Council has also involved with various recycling efforts throughout the years. Below are links to local, state, and national recycling programs:
SCIENCE SUPERSTARS - run by Mr. Jones & Mrs. Przestrzelski
'Frozen' Erupting Snow Workshop – Grade 1 - Students will learn about mixtures and chemical reactions while creating magical snow, just like Elsa in the movie Frozen! Then they'll marvel as the snow erupts to create a winter-wonderland of fun!
Gliders Workshop – Grades 2 & 3 - Students will learn the basics behind aerodynamics, potential & kinetic energy, and airplanes. After assembling their own balsa wood gliders, students will put them to the test during an aeronautics competition!
Catapult Workshop - Grade 4 – Learn about the simple machines that make the catapult an effective compound machine if you have a castle to plunder, or if you want to toss objects long distances. Students will understand how potential & kinetic energy work as they construct catapults from scratch and compete for “farthest toss!”
Rockets Workshop - Grade 5 - Students will learn about factors that make rockets work, like propulsion, ignition systems, fuselage, and trajectory. Then they will assemble their own model rockets and launch them at Cape Hilldale.
MATH 24 - run by Mrs. Przestrzelski
Taken from the Math 24 website on 4/6/11:
In 1988, successful inventor Robert Sun embarked on a journey to teach children the relationship between numbers through a game. The result of his efforts was the 24® game, a unique mathematics teaching tool that has proven to successfully engage students in grades 1 through 9 from diverse economic and social backgrounds. “I wanted to demonstrate that mathematics can be powerful, engaging and fascinating,” says Sun. “Knowing the answer is always 24 alleviates a classic brand of math anxiety—getting the right answer—and instead puts the emphasis on the process and patterns, what I like to call ‘the method behind the math.’ ”
In 2012, the 24® Game will celebrate its 24th anniversary, continuing to help children sharpen basic math skills such as computation, problem solving, number sense, critical thinking, and pattern sensing. Used in more than 600,000 classrooms throughout the United States and abroad, the 24® Game, and the First In Math® Online Program, are helping to create a new generation of students become critical thinkers and problem solvers.
