Mariposa Elementary Fifth Graders Study Native Americans

Students in Mrs. Saunders’ 5th grade present Native American Projects.  Fifth graders enjoyed presenting Native American projects. As part of their Reading and Social Studies standards, each student researched a tribe, wrote about the culture, then created a board or diorama reflecting the unique attributes they discovered.  Pictured: Zachary Cobb, Jonah McCrory, and Victoria Serrano Melendez.

 

Southport Middle School Selected for NAEP

Southport Middle School Selected for NAEP

Southport Middle School eighth grade students participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress, an assessment also known as NAEP or The Nation’s Report Card. According to NAEP, the results of the assessment are a way to show what students nationwide know and can do in different subjects. The results provide educators, policymakers, elected officials and parents across the country with invaluable information regarding what students their age are learning. The students who completed the science portion of the NAEP test were especially engaged and enjoyed the interactivity of the assessment experience. Henry King and Khamani Wright liked the hands-on experiments using cookie dough. Erik Meads and Imani Pierre really dug into their experiments involving sedimentary rocks.
