Learning should always be this exciting! Third grade students have been learning about simple machines in their Science classes. After learning about pulleys, inclined planes, and fulcrums, students are now learning about wheels and axles. Students created their own racecars out of wooden sticks, pipe cleaners, washers, pasta, and tape! Students were encouraged to experiment to see what would produce the fastest car, such as only adding three washers instead of four or putting the pasta wheels closer to or further from the body of the car. Then the races began! Students loved cheering on their friends and seeing the marvel of simple machines in action! #WhyNysmith #LearningIsFun ... See MoreSee Less

8th Grade Video Class: Never Gonna Give You Up
As their final project in 8th grade video class, the students made a music video and were able to pick their own song. These students went back in time and created an instant classic, "never giving up" on making the perfect project to end the year on, and they certainly didn't "let us down" either. We hope you have a great weekend and enjoy watching their very entertaining project!

Students in Mommy and Me, Beginner, PreK, and Kindergarten classes dove into the world of reptiles with a special presentation from Reptiles Alive! Students got to meet a gopher snake, boa constrictor, blue-tongued skink, turtle, and a very large frog named Java. It gave the students a great opportunity to see and touch animals they've been learning about in their classes! After the presentation, students were invited up to pet Sunflower the albino boa constrictor! #WhyNysmith #LearningIsFun ... See MoreSee Less
