On May 12th, 40 JCHS student-scientists took a field trip to participate in the U of O Science Day. Highlights of the trip included visits to Zebra Fish lab, Bio Chem demo, Nano Technology lab, Laser lab and Leaf Cutter Ant Colony (only school in the US doing research). Students were able to view and participate in cutting edge technology executed primarily through undergrad research!
Many of our graduating seniors- a number of whom will be pursuing higher education in the STEM fields- were honored at the Annual Education Together Foundation Awards night, May 16th.
This month started out with Teacher Appreciation Week, and it was clear that Territorial Teachers are truly appreciated. In addition to an “appreciation station” where students were given the opportunity to write notes of appreciation throughout the week, teachers were on the receiving end of fun and yummy treats each day of the week in addition to getting beautiful potted flowers from the Territorial Parent Association and enjoying a catered lunch courtesy of the classified staff. It was really encouraging to see the Territorial community bless our teachers in this way.
State assessments for our 3rd-5th grade students wrapped up mid-month and Easy CBM Spring Benchmark assessments are well underway. These assessments are particularly useful as they provide data related to student learning and growth in the areas of reading and math over the course of a school year. Information from assessments are used to inform instruction, including identification of areas for focus for whole group lessons as well as targeted interventions for individuals and small groups.
Garden Club and LEGO Club picked up again this month. Both programs are supported by grant funds and dedicated volunteers, providing outstanding after school enrichment opportunities for our students.
Fifteen 4th and 5th grade students, led by Music teacher Amy Burrows, performed a song on their ukuleles at the Empty Bowls fundraiser held at JCHS on May 3rd. What a fun event to be a part of, the showcase of talent from each building and a number of HS programs was inspiring.
The annual TPA sponsored, track and field day was held on May 20th. Students competed in a variety of events, 50 yard dash, hurdles, long jump, relay, softball throw and cross country to name a few. The weather was perfect and a good time was had by all.
Coming up the Territorial “Barn Raising” Celebration is scheduled to take place tomorrow, May 23rd to celebrate the construction of our new, bond funded, covered play area at TES. We will kick off activities with an all school performance of some old timey tunes, followed by square dancing to a live band and a number of fun western theme activities including stick horse races, cowboy boot bean bag toss, branding and lassoing activities and of course a chow station with healthy snacks for all.
Also on the horizon preparations are underway for Outdoor School, our theme this year is “Long Ago at Lutherwood”. Students in PK-grade 5 will spend June 12th -16th participating in fun outdoor learning activities at Camp Lutherwood.
We will wrap up this year with an all school assembly and 5th grade transition ceremony on June 21st.
