First grade students at West Elementary celebrated "Week of the Young Child" with some very exciting activities. First grade students participated in a book swap. Students brought in gently used books and each student got to choose a book to take home. First grade students also celebrated "Work It Wednesday " where students dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up.
Students at West Elementary extend a HUGE thanks to the Jersey 100 Foundation. Each year, our schools receive a generous grant from the foundation. This year, we were able to use our funds to invite the artisans from Mississippi Mud Pottery to help each kindergarten and first grade student make their own piece of pottery. This is the second year for this activity and the students absolutely love it! Thanks so much Jersey 100 Foundation!!!
Today Miss Herkert’s class used their critical thinking and collaboration skills to complete a digital Spring Breakout Activity. There were a series of 5 sets of clues and locks to unlock.

Mrs. Siemer’s class started their rainbow unit in the Cafetorium with an art project and making, baking and eating rainbows with our wonderful cooks, Becky and Tiffany. We colored the batter, layered it in the muffin pans and baked them. They came out looking amazing and tasting delicious. The kids cheered when they bit into them and saw all the colors of the rainbow. It was a great Fun Food Friday!

Facilities do have a big impact learning. The new Panther Den at West Elementary is a great place for students to explore. The space is designed to allow a large group of students seating and viewing of the big screen TV, but it also has plenty of room to spread out for exploring. It was the ideal setting for 1st grade students in Ms. Beauchampś class to experiment with coding today. Even Mr. Greg Brown helped the students program their robots. #GoJerseyPanthers
Students in Mrs. Murphy's first grade and Mrs. Siemer's kindergarten class are already making great use of the new spaces at West Elementary. They teamed together in the cafeteria to make magical Leprechaun pudding, Oobleck, and reading St. Patrick's day books.
Can you catch a leprechaun? Students in Mrs. Beuttel's first grade class wrote about how to create a leprechaun trap, then used items from their STEM bins to create traps. Unfortunately the leprechaun wasn't found, but these students had a lot of fun trying to catch him!

Do you want to know what a typical day in JCHS Fine Arts and Career/Technical Education classes looks like? It is mess, loud, busy, practical, organized chaos with career exploration and hands on applications. The content might have changed since you were in high school but the change is for the better! In CTE classes, students are learning to find their niche and build a career from the passions. But it is more than that, so much more! There is an over abundance of problem-solving, character development, collaboration unfolding too. These students display so much pride and confidence everyday. These classes are for students planning to attend college, trade school, military bound, going right into the work force... and the undecided. It is not just something they look forward to in their day or an incentive to pass their core classes- It is an opening to doors they did not know existed. When Mrs. Heitzig took the pictures below today. She just popped in unannounced, and snapped a few quick pictures. It did not need to be planned because these activities happen daily.
First grade students love coding on Valentines day. The excitement in the room was contagious. The students in Mrs. Duggan's classroom exceeded all expectations today when they programmed their robots. The students were able to write up to 4 different lines of code. Many of the groups learned about decimals for the first time because they needed their robot to go less than 2 seconds but more than 1 second. One student suggested try 1.5. Then the students were ready for the next challenge and added angles to their code. The students used a protractor to code angles from 0-360 degrees. The math applied to program the robots was outstanding. Best of all the students used trial and error to keep their robot on track. #lovemath #loveStem #GoJerseyPanthers
HUGE congrats to our Poms Dance Team who placed 2nd in Hip Hop and 3rd in Kick at State over the weekend! Way to go girls!!

What makes bridges so strong? Students in Mrs. Burneyś 4th grade class learned all about the different bridge types and the construction and function of each. Students were to design a bridge that would hold the most weight possible. The bridge could only be made from two pieces of paper. They collaborated with their groups and carried out investigations to test each of their prototypes. From doing their tests, they had to determine how to make their bridge even stronger. #Jersey100Proud

Mrs. Lamer's 4th grade students put their geometry skills to the test programming robots. The students first created a path for the robot to follow. The path included acute, obtuse, and right angles. When they programmed their robot they had to decide how many degrees, at what speed, and for how many seconds the robot should roll. Their programs did not work the first 4-5 tries, but the students used their problem solving skills to get their robot back on track. It was great to see the perseverance in problem solving these students displayed. #Jersey100Proud
Girls Volleyball game tonight at Jacksonville is cancelled due to weather
Mrs. Fessler's 2nd grade Students love the challenge of computer coding. The students do not give up when it gets tough and they even fix their own errors. At the completion of a level one could see the delight on their faces. One girl even said, "I am going to be a computer programmer when I grow up." #Jersey100Proud
