8th Grade Cement 

As part of the 8th grade unit on Chemical Reactions, students mixed water, cement, sand, and gravel according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and tested it’s strength. Next  students changed the mix using their own ideas. Finally, they tested the strength of the student mixture against the manufacturer mixture and analyzing the results.

5th Grade Candy Corn Structures

6th Grade Mummys

As part of our studies of Ancient Egypt students were challenged to create a child sized mummy using only newspaper, toilet paper and packing tape. The students worked in small groups with much success.

3rd Grade Bridge Building

3rd Grade read a story called “Pop’s Bridge”.  In conjunction with the story, students worked in groups to build a bridge with cups, tape, and yarn. The bridges were then tested to see how many “people”  (unifix cubes) they could hold.

Kindergarten Apple Stacking

Kindergarten students read the book Ten Apples on Top. After reading the book students tried to stack apples like the characters in the story.

PreK Bridge Building

PreK read the book Twenty-One Elephants and Still Standing about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and how P.T. Barnum proved it was safe by having 21 elephants walk across it. Student groups were given different building materials and 12 plastic bears. Each group worked together to build a bridge that 12 bears could “walk” across.

Fire Prevention

Aston Township Fire Department came to visit our students in Preschool-2nd grade with their fire truck, ambulance, fire dog and fire equipment. Students learned about creating an emergency exit plan, stop drop and roll and the importance of sleeping with bedroom doors closed to prevent a fire from spreading.

Prayer Partners

Prayer Partners pair 8th grade student mentors with Kindergarten students. Students share personal prayer intentions and/or struggles with each other. Partners meet in class and share how they have prayed for each other during a given week.
