Here is The Great Slide Challenge where third graders learned about friction, the force that slows you down on a playground slide. Students are testing which materials have the most friction and which ones have the least.
Third graders continue to use their knowledge of forces as they teamed up here to build a strong bridge that supports as many pennies as possible. They were only given two sheets of paper. The strongest bridge held about 160 pennies. Way to go!
The JH Boys Track and Field meet at Clayton Ridge scheduled for tomorrow, April 13th has been postponed.

The Middle School and High School Advisor groups did a team building activity today called the Ping Pong Challenge. Students were given a few specific rules to follow as they passed ping pong balls with in small groups. They were given time to reflect and improve their process in order to increase the number of ping pong balls passed in 2 minutes. Each group was given three trials to improve. The highest number heard was 136. Did your group do better?
