We have had the opportunity to experience some AMAZING student projects in the past month. Bravo to the historians who participated in Connecticut History Day and the scientists who presented projects at the Explorer Science Fair. Your projects showed inquiry, experimentation, innovation, research and critical thinking. Also, your presentation skills are VERY impressive! 

Now, we look forward to our next project share: on April 13th our 4th-grade inventors will share their creations at the 3rd Annual RWCSMS Invention Convention. We can't wait to see the problems you chose to tackle and your approaches to solving them. Cheers for project-based learning and the opportunity to hear your voices and see your thinking on display!

After participating in a Socratic seminar on our fifth core values, Service, eighth grade Explorers decided they wanted to help improve our community. Working with their facilitator, Mrs. Brown, they designed an outreach project to serve people in need. Mrs. Brown, our eighth graders, and a handful of teacher volunteers prepared and served breakfast at the Bethel AME Church warming center in New Haven. Their work in the community was featured on WTNH News:  http://wtnh.com/2016/03/30/new-haven-students-help-to-feed-homeless/.

Next week we begin working with mal words. Think wretched, evil, spiteful... Yup, we're talking about bad stuff here.
