    Power of The Pen Regional (Online) 5/16/20

    Good luck to Charlie Holbrooks competing today from her home computer at the Power of the Pen Regional tournament. She is an 8th grade complete rockstar. She faithfully attends our weekly writing club meetings. Mrs. Ring & Mrs. Knight are extremely proud of her!
    The January tournament at Lake Erie College was her 1st attempt. She shared yesterday how she really enjoyed it and got the hang of it. She was a little nervous about today because it is online and in a new format

    Mrs. Ring and I assured her that she can do this. She has a ton of potential as a writer and she also possesses the courage to share her stories and ideas. Charlie has a smile that can even light up a computer screen! It made my day.

    Update from Charlie:
    Prompt #1
    “Who’s idea was that anyway? Explain what happened.”

    She titled her story: "Be a Lady."

    Now who wants to read it? I know I do.Update #2 from Charlie:

    Prompt #2 was, “Hesitation. What makes people hesitate?”

    Her story was titled “Teenage Turmoil”

    Sounds intriguing to me!!

    Now onto judging.......

    Think Fast! 3/6/20

    The Think Fast Interactive was Friday for students in grades 9-12. ThinkFast® was developed in 1997 as a program that would non-intrusively expose participants to and educate them on important information on hard-to-tackle topics, i.e. the consequences of underage drinking, drug use, bullying, traffic safety, distracted driving, etc., while simultaneously entertaining them in a safe, relaxed and fun environment.

  • Living Museum- Grade 2- Where We Are in Place & Time

    Living Museum- Grade 2- Where We Are in Place & Time

    McKinley second grade students held their annual "Living Museum" in celebration of the end of their Unit of Inquiry on Where We Are in Place & Time. As you can see the students dressed as the significant person they researched. They did an amazing job imitating statues until museum visitors "pushed their buttons" for the presentation. It was a wonderful day full of visits from Alexander Graham Bell, Sacajawea, Jane Goodall, Babe Ruth, Georgia O'Keeffe, Abraham Lincoln, Nikola Tesla and many more.
