Today marked our very last science class of the year. The Orange Cluster teachers were blessed, yet again, with a fantastic group of kids. They were hardworking, respectful, positive students from September all the way until June. And for that we are tremendously grateful.
In class today, we began by watching the end-of-year video (posted above) and then followed with the year’s-end awards. In addition to giving awards for the highest average, the best effort, the best participation, and the most-improved student in each class, we also found out which students were the winners of our Applying for Jobs project:
Aerospace Engineer – Ciara Hume
NASA Chemist – Noah Braunstein
Vaccine Developer – Maddie Healey
Biologist – Colleen McDonnell
Astronaut – Brooke Vallier
FEMA Officer – Caroline Larson
Environmental Scientist – Maggie Roderick
Congratulations to the students above, and to all of this year’s students, on a job well done. You will have a great year next year, of that I’m sure. And I hope you carry the lessons of 8th grade with you through high school and beyond.
