Give Kids a Chance to Share their Talents

JMS 5th grade band students had a talent show! This gave students a chance to share a special piece of music they may have learned on their own or even share another musical talent – amazing how many students know more than one instrument! We are so happy that our students explore their creativity BEYOND the classroom!

New Collaborative Spaces Make Learning Fun!

JMS CREATIVE SPACES AND TEACHING AT WORK... for those "Risk" fans out there... recently, Mr. Mangone and JHS World Geography students spent several class periods in one of the JMS collaboration stations with glass walls which allowed for a giant map to be drawn and a historically correct game of Risk to be played.

Move Over Traditional Book Talks!

It's "Book Talk Day" for our 8th grade Honors English class – instead of a typical book report, these students used their Chromebooks to create presentations about their book and presented, in a small group rotation, to our 5th grade Honors English students. What a great way for our younger students to take note of cool books and for our older students to hone their presentation skills! ‪#‎21stcenturylearners‬..More Information

#WeMakeThingFly at JHS – Mr. Aldrich / Physics

"We are studying acceleration, and will eventually segway into force, impulse, and several other related items. During this unit, I introduce rocketry to make the material more relative. The kids start out by constructing air-powered rockets (we use an old "stomper rocket" setup I bought way-back-when) without knowing much at all about rocket "stability." I encourage them to experiment, and then we launch. It's usually quite comical, as some of the rockets will barely make it off the launch pad. We then go back and look through center of gravity (weight distribution) and center of pressure and how it relates to the stability of rocket flight.
