First graders got into the Halloween spirit during their “Pumpkin Exploration Day” led by teacher Mrs. Pike. Students spent the whole day exploring pumpkins – measuring them for math, drawing them, describing their features for reading, and cutting them open and exploring the insides. The class even took out all the seeds and Mrs. Pike roasted them at home so the kids could have them for snack the next day. What a great way to apply a science, reading, math, and writing lesson around the pumpkin.
Intermediate Students Grow Cabbage
Some Intermediate students and their families are enjoying the fruits of their labor after growing cabbage through the Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage program. At the end of the year last school year, Mrs. Tropf signed her class up to participate in the program and Bonnie Plants gave each student a cabbage plant to take home and grow. Haylie R., Brenna S., and their families worked hard all summer growing their cabbage and both ended up with good looking crops. The diameter of Brenna’s actual head of cabbage measured well over a foot. Both families say they were able to have a lot of meals with their cabbage crop.
Students Attend Kindness Rally
Eleven students from the CMS Student Council and Builder’s Club attended a Kindness Rally and invited 12 students from Cardinal High School to join them at Mentor High School held in early October.
Students went to learn more about being advocates for kindness within our schools and how to share simple gestures with others. Students were led in activities that promoted making choices from the heart. CMS Student Council Advisor Mrs. Robinson said, “This was a good event for students to learn that when we have that embarrassing moment, whatever it may be, opening up and being vulnerable could be beneficial and even be a teaching moment. Showing kindness is simple. I’m anxious to see how students take the leap and incorporate some of these practices in school.” CMS Student Council sponsored the event making it possible for everyone to attend.
