“To help students to feel like they belong in mathematics, we created these pages in the front of our notebooks to remind ourselves: We are all unique, but no matter who you are, you can be a mathematician! You are wonderful and creative and fully capable of learning and doing math!”

Exploring Tech

Exploring Tech classes built some paper rockets and launched them during class. They were allowed to use 2 sheets of paper and a cork nose piece, some school glue to build the rockets.  We had rockets that went from 20 yards up to an impressive 150 yards and everywhere in between.  The students recorded the distance their rockets went at different pressures.  Some students tested different variations of fin types to see how that would affect the rocket's flight.

During the summer, MJHS students were invited to participate in a reading challenge. They had to read at least four books from four different continents--either the setting or author from different continents. Their reward was a pizza party. Congratulations to Summer Heringer, Anne Eastwood, Morgan Hill, Lily Robinson, Kyleigh Richards, and Zoey Fluckiger for completing the summer reading challenge! 

From Our Spanish Teacher, Mr. Thomas

In Spanish we do weekly FVR (free voluntary reading) time.  There are a variety of books from basic to advanced, comic books, graphic novels, joke books, magazines, leveled readers, short stories, and poetry.  The students get to select their choice of reading material and then the rule is to read for the allotted time, no electronics, no talking.  I play some meditative music.  Reading is the data-proven method to achieve literacy in any language. Thanks for the books.   The shelf has what was left after they picked.
