Drew Central High School 3rd 9 weeks Honor Roll
Drew Central fourth graders eagerly took on the Christmas STEM Challenge “Candy Cane Calamity”. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. Students worked in teams and designed and built a way to safely “mail” two candy canes in one paper bag package without breakage. Students were required to follow criteria and constraints. Once the packages were complete, students weighed them in grams and used a grams to ounces converter website. Next, they used Chromebooks and researched FedEx, USPS, etc. rates to mail their packages to Santa at the North Pole aka Geographic North Pole or Terrestrial North Pole. (more…)

Katelyn Bostian, sixth grader at Drew Central is the top Accelerated Reader in the middle school. The students get rewards for reading so many points. When they reach 200 points, they are given gift cards for each 100 points that they read and test. Katelyn asked that the money that would be spent on the gift cards be donated to a local animal shelter. Katelyn is a great example for the other students at Drew Central Middle School.
Drew Central fourth graders participated in the 2015 One Hour of Code which is a one-hour activity designed for students of all ages.
The largest learning event in history kicks off during Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13. The goal was to have a global movement with millions of students from around the world learning about coding at the same time. Students can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, for kindergarten and up. Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they’re empowered to keep going. Why computer science? Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to take part in creating technology that’s changing the world. The basics help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career. By exposing both girls and boys to fundamental computing concepts on a level playing field, we can inspire today’s generation of students to build technology. (more…)
