Rowland Students Create Gingerbread Homes as Part of Language Arts Project

Rowland Elementary School third grade students took a language arts lesson in a rather creative direction recently, as students became young architects and then realtors in a gingerbread house construction project. Houses were made from materials which included cardboard, wood, cotton balls and other items, and then were summarized in persuasive essays students wrote, to convince the Gingerbread Man that their houses were the best. Families assisted students with the project, and the Rowland PTA even sponsored an Art Night where such homes could be constructed with parents.

Sunview Stuffs Stockings for Soldiers for Fifth Straight Year

Students at Sunview Elementary School have worked collaboratively and compassionately to collect 130 stockings filled with a variety of items to send to our US troops serving overseas. For the fifth consecutive year, elementary teacher Mrs. Jaime Bloom has partnered with DeJohn Funeral Home who sponsors the event, to gather items such as playing cards, snack items, footballs, socks and other toiletries, to stuff into stockings and send to soldiers who have no families. Mrs. Bloom’s husband, Rick, works at DeJohn Funeral Home and helped to create the concept for students to participate. A special thank you goes out to the students, their families and Principal Taylor for helping this special program to succeed at Sunview Elementary School for the last five years.

Brush Seniors Visit the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage

On Tuesday, November 25th, 40 Brush seniors went to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage to view “State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda” to augment their study of Holocaust Literature and history. The exhibit, on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, explores how Nazis gained power through the manipulation of mass media. Students were encouraged to critically examine how the media influences their lives today. After the tour, the group had the privilege of hearing Leo Silberman, tell his story of survival of Buchenwald and multiple labor camps during the Holocaust.
