Testing the Strength of Bridges
Students in Ms. Dwan-Collins’ eighth grade science class used their knowledge of science, physics, and engineering to construct their own bridges. Last week, they tested the bridges’ strength. Students who manufacture light, but durable bridges result in higher efficiency ratings. Several students were surprised by their success in designing strong structures. Congratulations to these students. Thank you to all of our science teachers for introducing our students to such important lessons in science and engineering - and for making these projects FUN!
Congrats to our Debate Team
Congratulations to our Central School Debate Team who had a great showing at their meet on December 15th. Students on the team learn the art of rhetoric, public speaking, and critical thinking skills. Thank you to Mrs. Alsberg for her time and commitment to mentoring and coaching our students.
Building a Soundproof Model
Sixth graders work collaboratively to use their knowledge of mechanical waves and model-building to invent soundproof boxes. Not only did the students research materials that best absorb sound, but they participated in the iterative design process: Plan, Create, Test, Evaluate and Review. Click here for more photos.

We are pleased to share that our students are able to use text messaging to reach out for help for themselves or friends at any time of day or night. Text-a-Tip allows students to find anonymous, immediate help if they are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, depression, difficult family situations, bullying, or any of the many challenges they face today.
