Earth Day in Kindergarten
04/22/2016
Mrs.Gaskins's kindergarten students went on a nature walk around the ACS campus to enjoy Earth Day. Each student had a check list of certain items to find. The items were dirt, a leaf, a flower, a spider, a butterfly, a mushroom, a worm, a bird, an ant, a bee, a squirrel, a tree, a cloud, and grass. The students were able to find everything except a squirrel and a mushroom. They were especially excited to find a scarecrow in Mrs.Newman's garden and a small cliff above a swampy area on the far side of the big kids playground!

Partnership with NavAir
03/22/2016
What does it mean to have a partnership with NavAir at Cherry Point? It means a lot! It means that we have engineers who mentor our high school students: demonstrating problem-solving, showing how "math can explain the world", and helping them be successful in understanding how things work. It means our 5th grade and 8th grade students learn how two young engineers who were once young boys with a curiosity about the world grew up to study engineering in college. In college, they built a landrover to mine dirt on Mars and built a race car from scratch! Our students were intrigued with the 3-D printer that they demonstrated, but mostly they were excited to meet people very similar to themselves who get paid to do cool things!
