We held the Melva Davis Science Fair on Thursday, 1/17.  We had many great projects on display and students and parents showed up for viewing.  We were lucky to have the Adelanto High School band come to perform as well.  The band director spoke to our students about expectations for high school band and they played seven songs to entertain the crowd.   We also had the Apple Valley Astronomer club here and he spoke about the club and some cool activities coming up.  He was scheduled to bring telescopes, but the weather was not cooperative that day.  Out PLTW class also made programmable cars in the class.  The students picked the specs and designed the car.  The class then had races to see whose car would go the furthest and the fastest.  The students had a great time and learned a lot in the process.

Mesa Linda

From the desk of: Mrs. Tuttle, Principal, Mesa Linda Middle School

Ms. Purcell’s classroom is a prime example of equity in the classroom. Her students have flexible seating, with options for students who need movement in order to concentrate. Her room environment is warm and welcoming, with different cultures represented positively. The classroom is set up for students to engage and interact with one another. Pictured are her students working on a math game comparing integers. This activity helped them become comfortable with the values of the integers and the students had fun while playing the game.

EMS Mindfulness

From the desk of: Mrs. Juarez, Principal, El Mirage

As a school, we are committed to ensuring that our students feel they are in a safe school environment. Our students receive daily and weekly structured Mindfulness lessons. Mindfulness helps to develop a greater awareness of relationships and how to manage them (including difficult ones at home), as well as offering a richer understanding of things like self-esteem and optimism. Mindfulness trains students to understand and direct their attention with greater awareness and skill. this may improve the capacity to concentrate and be less distracted, as well as their working memory and ability to plan.
