Fifth Graders Find Their Strengths!

By learning about and valuing students' strengths, we motivate their learning.  Letting students know that there are many areas in which they are intelligent gives them confidence.  
Fifth graders took a multiple intelligence survey, and then graphed their results in Google sheets.  
They were very excited to become aware of all of their many strengths!  Check out the hallway by the technology integration room to see all of the results!

Have a safe and happy summer everyone!

Center School Sightings - Episodes 27 and 28

Welcome to our last CSS of the school year!  For these episodes, much appreciation goes to Mrs. Fritz and Mrs. Bocchino who brought  Heifer International's Read to Feed Program to us.  Center students went above and beyond getting donations for families in need, and at the same time they read their hearts out!   If that wasn't enough, Mrs. Fritz and Mrs. Bocchino secured a DUNK Tank for students to have the unique chance to dunk their teachers based on the amount of reading they did!  It was another day that showed Center's collaboration, creativity and determination to help students.

Personally, I want to sent a shout out and big thank you to the CSS Team - 76 fifth grade students who worked so hard and achieved so much to bring 28 episodes to you throughout the year.  A very special thanks goes to the fifth grade teachers: Mrs. Quinn,  Ms. Manna,  Mrs. Bombardier, and Ms. Anderson.  Their flexibility and generosity are why the students had such a great experience!

Please feel free to view this year and our last six years of the CSS newscast by visiting our website, Center School Sightings.
