National Robotics Week

Cherry Lane Elementary School students in Mrs. Theresa Collalto's first grade class were given a STEM-based challenge each day to celebrate National Robotics Week. The mission for “Robo Week” is to inspire students to explore STEM robotics related fields.

Cherry Lane students participated in activities such as Binary Codes BFF bracelets, Build a Better Bug model insect robots and Code a Dance Party with Dash robots. They learned about coding sequencing and loops, solving a mystery code to reveal a hidden message, were introduced to the function of binary codes, and created prototypes of a bug and morphed it into a robot.

Each day students used the four C's of technology: critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. They worked together to build, create and explore the world of robotics and coding, and they showed such enthusiasm with each challenge they faced.

Students at Cherry Lane school celebrated Autism Awareness Day by wearing blue and reading Julia Finley Mosca’s book “The Girl Who Thought in Pictures: The Story of Dr. Temple Grandin.”

Students learned that Dr. Grandin, being one of the most famous and successful people with autism, would think about words in her mind as pictures. They also focused on how Dr. Grandin teaches people that being different does not mean a person is less significant. Students followed up with an artistic exercise where they identified what special qualities make them different.

ALS Awareness

Students at Cherry Lane and Rushmore Avenue schools began its annual campaign to raise awareness for the ALS Association.

Representatives from the organization visited both elementary schools and led an assembly, “Overcoming Adversity.” In their discussions, Mr. Paul Weisman and Mr. Dick Iannuzzi spread awareness and encouraged students to participate in the fight against ALS. Throughout the month of April, both buildings plan on hosting fundraising events where all proceeds will be donated to the ALS organization. For Rushmore, students will be able to purchase raffles as well as participate in various spirit days. The goal in raising awareness is to support patients and families through patient services, and provide the community with the latest ALS news, information and inspiration.

Both buildings hope to be added as a stop during the organization’s ALS Ride For Life this year.
