.Students in Ms. Biggerstaff's Science classes are learning about the moon. Can we live on the moon? Where would we live? Thank you to Wingate University and the Aldrin Family Foundation students are getting the chance to explore these questions and more with a giant interactive moon map. For the next several Fridays, all sixth grade Science classes will receive the opportunity to take part in this activity.
Today during the announcements students and staff observed a moment of silence in recognition of those involved, affected, and in memory of those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. Ms. Sanguine, Sixth Grade Language Arts teacher is one out of many people who has been personally affected by the events that took place that day. Ms. Sanguine, shared with her students that her husband was on the 31st floor working the day of the attacks. It was due to the first responders and all of the rescue workers involved that her husband was saved. She had students share what they knew about the events of September 11th and why we took a moment of silence today. Ms. Sanguine then placed a sticky note on each student's desk and asked them to write down one thing that they could do to make not only the school, but also the world a better place.
