Third grade classes in each of our elementary schools continue to participate in science enrichment activities with Drs. Bless and Pearl of Science & Engineering Education Development (SEED, Inc.). Here are some photos of Hansen School third graders learning about birds. Students were given three different instruments to simulate the beaks of ducks, Hummingbirds, or Woodpeckers and visited different environments at stations set up around the classroom to test if they would be able to eat the nectar, ants, fish, or seeds with their type of beak. It was a great hands-on learning experience!
Third grade students in Christine Bohn's class at the Wilkins School are seen here observing two tadpoles that are living in their classroom. Each third grade classroom at the Wilkins has tadpoles that students will be able to watch develop into leopard frogs! Students are even keeping frog journals to document their observations.

Stoughton High students had the chance to interact with Malcolm Mitchell, a former New England Patriots wide receiver who was a key part of the team’s historic comeback win in Super Bowl 51. Mitchell, whose career ended after sustaining multiple knee injuries, transitioned from champion football player to a champion for literacy, and brought his message of the importance of reading to Stoughton High students during a virtual assembly last week. Mitchell once struggled with literacy as a student and now is a children's author and publisher who started the foundation Share the Magic, a youth literacy program that promotes transformation through literacy. Stoughton High classes had the chance to live stream this event, watching five SHS students moderate a discussion with Mitchell: Crystal Sarblah, grade 11; Deshunna Frazier, grade 11; Arthur Martins, grade 11; Philip Takang, grade 12; Jalen Castillo, grade 12. They did a great job asking questions, and Mitchell was happy to give some valuable life advice and discuss the impact literacy has had on his life.

Wilkins School students had a whale of a time on March 22 as “The Whalemobile” came for a visit. The Whalemobile is a life-sized inflatable whale named Nile, modeled after a real humpback whale that can be seen off the coast of Massachusetts. The inflatable whale was set up in the Wilkins School gymnasium, with classes visiting it throughout the day. Students could even go inside the inflatable structure to get a look at what a whale’s interior would look like! Students enjoyed getting up close to Nile, going inside, and learning about whales during their time with the Whalemobile.
Check out this display seen recently in the halls of the Hansen School! Students in Mrs. Palmer's 4th grade class were asked to write about life lessons and themes found in the fiction books they read and recreate or reinvent a cover for the book.

Three Gibbons School students got to be principal for a day recently! LiLianna Thompson (3rd grade), Kevin Crawley (3rd), and Alyssa Monaghan (4th) are pictured here with Gibbons School principal David Guglia. The 250 Gibbons students who completed a project for the school's "Black History Month Challenge" in February were entered into a raffle to be principal of the day, with LiLianna, Kevin and Alyssa winning the raffle. They declared March 18 to be pajama day at the Gibbons and gave classes the chance to earn some extra recess.
