First grade students began science discussing what they knew and what they thought they knew about fall in North Carolina. After discussing and making predictions they watched a video on the changing season patterns in the United States. Students then went on a scavenger hunt around Hemby Bridge Elementary observing and collecting evidence of the change from summer to fall. After they collected items they brought their items inside and compared what fall looks like in North Carolina to the current season of spring in Australia. Students were interested to learn that Australia is in the Southern Hemisphere and the United States is in the Northern Hemisphere and that we have opposite seasons.
We at Hemby Bridge are so excited to welcome our newest Visiting International Faculty member, third grade teacher Ellie Carruthers! Ms. Carruthers is from Hillingdon in West London. Her parents still live in the house in which she and her three siblings grew up. She remembers hopping the wall behind her house with her brother Charlie and spending the days playing and roller skating in the park there. Her family has now spread out, including her brother Julian, who owns a software company, and her sister, Debbie, who lives with her family on the Isle of Wight, a small island off the southern coast of England. However, Ms. Carruthers has moved the farthest, as she now lives in Charlotte, near Matthews.
On Thursday, April 21, the ACC class participated in the Union County Special Olympics at Forest Hills High School. A much anticipated yearly activity, the students competed in various track and field events and returned to school having won several medals! This year provided a special opportunity for 5th grader, Hunter Rondina, who was chosen to help carry the torch for the opening ceremony.
