We are so proud of our 5th Grade Eagles!!! We all wish you the best next year at Middle School.
Forest North had a great inaugural Culture Night on Tuesday, 5/24. We invited all classrooms to research a country, and present about its traditions, food, economy, and other aspects of its culture. We had 80 students and their families attend and learn about these countries. As families arrived, they were given a passport, where they earned stamps as they visited countries. After documenting ten visits, students received a special Spirit Stick. Many families completed more than 1 passport! The Love of China Dancers, featuring McNeil students, were showcased in the cafeteria in two presentations, and an interactive digital map was created by all participants, dropping a pin at their birthplace to physically represent the diversity we have at Forest North. We had either staff or students that hail from 6 continents! What a wonderful way to celebrate our similarities and differences at Forest North, and to teach each other about ourselves.
Forest North had a successful 2016 Olympic field day. The students had a blast trying Olympic sports such as Gymnastics, Track & Field, Volleyball, Basketball, and much more! A HUGE thank you to all of the Watchdogs and parent volunteers that help make field day such a success!
We celebrated our Eagle Pride winners for the last month today. Our winners were so excited to receive their awards! We also gave out Larry the Eagle and our class awards for being on time and fewest absences.
Our 5th grade students used Makey Makey kits to build controllers to play games on the computers. They had to use conductive materials and then design a controller with would work for the game that they picked. They were very creative and came up with some great ideas.
At Forest North we have started Maker Space Mondays. Each class will spend time in the Science lab every other Monday working on Maker Space activities.
Our 3rd activity was designing and building paper airplanes. Students went through 3 rounds of building and testing their paper airplanes. Round 1 was their basic design. We had a test course set up and they were trying for distance. After the 1st round of building and testing, we discussed ideas on how to improve their designs. For round 2 students adjusted their designs and added new items to their builds to try to improve their performance. After testing in round 2, students had one final round to try to improve their design. Many discovered that their changes were very effective and continued with their ideas. Some students discovered that their original design was better and they went back to that idea. They all had a BLAST!!!
