MVES LIBRARY UNVEILS NEW MURAL CREATED BY MVHS SENIOR

Posted November 20 at 3:40pm

Fiction or non-fiction? Now Minisink Valley Elementary Students can quickly decide and find their reading choices thanks to a new wall mural created by high school senior Nicoletta Lombardo.

 

The non-fiction mural appeals to the K-2 grades served by the school library with colorful illustrations of popular animals, including a penguin riding a dinosaur, birds and butterflies in flight, a fish bowl, and a well-behaved dog.

 

“We needed more signage in the library to differentiate the fiction from the non-fiction section,” Mrs. McLean said. “I explained to Nikki that I was looking for something attractive to our age group and she ran with it.”

FIRST GRADERS DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF SCIENCE

Posted November 20 at 1:53pm

It was sink or float in Stephanie Hoffman’s first grade class when middle school science teacher Nicole Lee paid a visit on Monday, Nov. 19.

 

“We made dry-erase markers ‘magically’ float!” Mrs. Lee said. Scientifically speaking, they were observing buoyancy and density in action.

 

This may be their first year of science class, but these first graders are already versed in the scientific process. Or, as Alleah Lee put it best, "Sometimes you have to try things, again and again, to see if it works."

PICKING AT PUMPKINS

Posted October 29 at 12:20pm

From now on, Minisink Valley second graders in Jess Paglia’s class will associate pumpkins with a lot more than pie and jack-o’-lanterns.

 

Last week, Mrs. Paglia used this most popular of the gourd relatives to engage students in scientific and mathematical exploration. They learned about the life cycle of pumpkins, measured them, dissected their parts, investigated what makes them sink or float, and they counted seeds—up to 393 in one pumpkin alone!
