Students in 5th grade science are using a resource called Padlet to brainstorm ways they can help protect Earth’s Natural Resources (as that’s what they are studying in science right now). We’d like to hear from our community and let you experience Padlet (a message board for sharing ideas). What do you do in your home or around our community to help protect Earth’s Natural Resources.

6th grade STEM class students have been working with Ozobots. These are robots that carry out commands based on color coded “playgrounds”. Students created their own playgrounds yesterday getting used to working with the Ozobot. Today students had a “bowling” challenge. To code a route where ozobot would knock down six “pins” along the way! They are doing a great job and learning a lot! #onetribe

5th grade science students got to experience the Science Lab at the Middle School on Monday. They checked the solubility of different kinds of matter and made observations based on which substances dissolved in water. For the rest of the week, they are making observations to see what happens to those substances after they dissolve! Is it still there? They will be checking their cups this week as the water evaporates to see if there is any trace of their matter. Being able to utilize the lab is a great experience for our younger students! #onetribe

The faculty and staff at SMS is very excited for students to return to our building tomorrow. We hope they had a great summer and are ready for all of the exciting things we have in store for them this year. Just a few reminders: -First period begins at 8:15, so students need to be in the building with enough time to get to their lockers and be in class by 8:15. A student entering after 8:15 will be considered tardy to school (see Student Handbook). -We will have a full day of student attendance on the first day of school, so we will dismiss at 3:15 as usual. -Please adhere to our new traffic flow policy and refrain from pulling through our parking lot to pick-up or drop-off between 7:45-8:15 and 3:00-3:30. -Student planners are available for purchase at a price of $6.50. In addition to being a great resource for students to stay organized (includes school calendar and other helpful organization tools), the planners include a coupon for free fries at McDonalds, $5 off an oil change at Neal Tire, and free student or adult admission to one home sporting event, so the value of the coupons exceeds the cost of the planner. Once again, we would love to see every student with one of these in their hands. Students can purchase before school in room 106 or parents can purchase in the school office.

Mrs. Wright's 6th grade math students are using their iPads to scan QR codes to take them to websites with information on roller coasters. They're researching the height, length, speed, duration and number of inversions of each coaster. They are then calculating the mean, median, mode and range for each data set.

One Book, One Sullivan has been working hard all summer to pick a great book for the community. Students have been reading one book a week and then meeting to discuss them. This discussion was particularly intense as we were eliminating some very well-loved books as you can see from the students' faces. To celebrate their hard work and the last meeting of the summer, we ate at TNT. Thanks to TNT for being such a great host! Remember you can support the One Book, One Sullivan by donating here: https://onebooksullivan.com/ok One Sullivan Update
