The Riverview A+ After School Program 3rd Graders worked in pairs to build sections of a bridge out of toothpicks and gumdrops. Then they connected their sections to create one bridge and test it's strength. The bridge successfully held 400 pennies for 1 minute!
Redgranite Third Graders participated in a virtual field trip on Thursday. The students have been learning a lot about motion and they participated in a virtual class called Motion Commotion with Scientist K from North Carolina. The students enjoyed learning additional information about motion and doing experiments with the scientist. The children worked with tops, learned about centrifugal force, and made magnetic slime.
WHS students in Basic Interior Design, a dual credit course with Fox Valley Technical College, spent some time before spring break making mini barn boards.
WHS students in Basic Interior Design, a dual credit course with Fox Valley Technical College, create a string art project during the unit on Elements of Design.
The 5th graders at Redgranite Elementary have been looking into different ways to separate mixtures. Last week they were given a mixture of four materials (gravel, powder, salt, and a mystery material) and tasked with separating all four of the materials. They were given a tub with everything they needed to separate the materials and that was it. The kids needed to use the knowledge from previous investigations to write a plan for how they were going to accomplish their task and then test it. It took a few tries but both groups got all of the materials back into their own cups! It was awesome watching them problem solve along the way!
WHS students enrolled in the dual credit Infant and Toddler course were challenged to make puppets from wooden spoons for a favorite children's book. Virtual students were challenged to create puppets from what they had at home and with what was readily available to them.

First graders at Redgranite Elementary learned about how animals become "invisible" to protect themselves from predators. Some animals use camouflage, some become flat to blend in with their surroundings, and other animals turn themselves into a different shape! The students created a secret message and hid them around the classroom. Can you find the messages?

Mark your calendars for the 2021 SCC Art Show!
Third grade students at Redgranite had fun learning about Patterns of Motion with tops. Students designed their own tops and wrote their own focus questions to answer. Some children wanted to know, "What is the best design for a top that spins a long time?" or "Does it make a difference if you use the larger or smaller discs to design a top?" Students tested their tops, drew a diagram and wrote about their observations. The students also had fun using a Doodle Top.
During Redgranite Elementary's 4K unit on Spring we placed chicken eggs in our incubator. Over the weekend our chicks started hatching. This is just in time for us to learn about them in our next unit, Farm and Ranch.

Congratulations to the WHS March Student of the Month, junior Megan Kelly! Megan Kelly has been a consistently hard worker in AP Biology, AP Statistics, and Precalculus this semester. Her determination to master the content material being presented is impressive as she seeks deeper understanding rather than just enough to get by. It is not uncommon to have Megan email questions or to come in for extra help during 8th period, in order to gain a firm grasp of whatever content we are covering at the time. Megan is extremely alert and conscientious in class. She is also very organized and takes stellar notes, in a “textbook example” fashion. Megan is a classroom leader and a genuinely nice person with a high character that is driven to be the best version of her that she can be.
