Recently Mr. John from the Franklin Institute presented an assembly called “Life in Space” to students at New Garden Elementary School. His presentation answered several essential questions such as, How do you get people into space? What do they do once they get there? How do we get them safely back to earth once they are done? This presentation engaged the students and there was lots of audience participation.
New Garden Elementary School students celebrated 100 days of learning by participating in activities centered around the number 100. In Mrs. Kimberly Hall’s first grade class, her students paired up with Mr. Troy Harris’s fifth grade class to complete 100th day STEM activities. In addition, many students and teachers came to school dressed as if they were 100 years old. It was a day filled with learning and fun.
On a chilly winter morning, things really heated up at New Garden Elementary School with a pep rally from a member of the Harlem Wizards. All students and staff were encouraged to wear yellow and purple. One student went even further and got purple and yellow braces! The Wizards’ player, DJ, hyped up the audience and encouraged everyone to attend the Harlem Wizards versus KCSD staff basketball game. All proceeds from this game will benefit Kennett High School’s MiniTHON, a club based on Penn State’s THON, in their effort to support research research for pediatric cancer.
