Cast of Broadway Bound begins rehearsals
Drama Club has started its production of their spring musical, Broadway Bound. The show is a type of Broadway revue written by Mr. McCourt. It is about a group of theater students who are headed out on a field trip to New York City and includes songs from numerous musicals that have been in Broadway productions throughout the years.
Take a walk to the planets
Mr. Hutchinson’s 6th graders discovered just how far planets in our solar system are from each other and the sun. For this project, students first used their Chromebooks to research the size of each planet in our solar system. Once the size of each planet was determined a scale was made with the Earth represented by a golf ball. Using this measurement system, students ascertained that the sun would be 17 feet across!
Students then cut construction paper to represent all of the planets except Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Mercury was represented by a small pebble, Venus (Earth’s twin) by another golf ball, and Mars by a marble. Nicolette Kim was excited because she got to hold her favorite planet, Saturn, as the class walked past her all the way to the planet formerly known as Pluto.
