Ms. Maglorie and Mr. Jarvis’s Class:
Mrs. Magloire and Mr. Jarvis class have been discussing and debating issues going on in our nation today. In this classroom, the students have read articles, conducted research, and watched videos on the Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, and Eric Garner cases. The students have learned the meaning of racism and have researched various articles on the topic. They have watched videos and talked about peaceful protest compared to violent protest in these situations.
The students have gained a better
understanding of the issues going on in our nation today. They have discussed the jobs of cops in our society and jobs of citizens. They all understand how important it is to abide by the laws and treat others equally and with mutual respect. These discussions have made students excited to come into class and discuss topics that caught their attention while watching the news at home.
Ms. Albertoni and Mr. V’s Class
This year the LEAP Program will hold our 4th annual Science Fair. Each class holds an experiment at their classes perspective grade levels. Each class then presents their experiment to family, friends, district guests as well as fellow school mates in our school's gym. Each student participates and gets a chance to present to the crowd. We hope to see you all there with us this year!!!
Mr. Myers and Mr. Sacco’s Class
Santa's Workshop in Kent went off without a hitch again this year. Our students earned an abundance of tickets again this year and were able to get some great gifts for friends, their family members, and even themselves. We had a large variety of things to choose from to ensure that each student could get something no matter how many tickets they had earned.
The high school students took it upon themselves to set-up and run the workshop for the school. The students created “price” tags for the various gifts and displayed the items around the classroom so that their peers could easily find gifts. Each station was run by a single student and two of the best wrappers in the class took on the responsibility of running the wrapping station.
Students were able to get various gifts from small things like: candy, writing utensils, and hair accessories; to larger gifts like: basketballs, mini Cleveland Brown basketball hoops, and Ohio State scarves. Each student was prompted by staff to think of others, in the spirit of the season, during this activity but that it was also OK to get themselves a gift since they worked hard to earn the tickets. All in all this years Santa's Workshop was a success and a good time was had by all.
