The fourth grade class visits the Institute on Aging monthly during the school year. The class walks down to the senior center where they play games, draw, sing, and talk with the elders there. Students learn some of the elders' favorite songs like, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," and "Home on the Range." As one fourth grade student put it, "It's like stepping into the past for a little bit." This service project is a memorable and fun experience for students and the elders they visit.

In a recent physical science project to investigate forces of tension and compression, eighth grade students were challenged to design and build a bridge from drinking straws, straight pins, masking tape, and string. The bridges needed to span a 45cm gap between two lab tables and support at least a baseball, maximizing carrying capacity while minimizing material cost.

Fourth Grade students created a video during their library class time campaigning for who they think are the best book heroes and villains.
Students chose the character they wanted to spotlight, the reasons for how that character showed heroic or villainous behavior, the image(s) they wanted to represent their character in the video, the sounds they wanted associated with their character in the video and the theme for the video as a whole (comic book with news break).
The students also drew illustrations of their characters and made campaign posters that are on gallery view in the library.
Please see the video below and "vote" for who you think are the best heroes and villains of literature!

Challenge week is a series of three days during which students grade 6-8 choose an interest (animation, design thinking, survival skills, Balinese art and music etc) and engage with each other across grade levels through fieldtrips, group challenges, and shared enthusiasm. The students come away from Challenge week with new skills, new friends, a new appreciation for their chosen topic, and, perhaps most importantly, a deeper understanding of themselves.
