Joe Odhiambo had the students cheering for more today!  Joe "the trick-star" Odhiambo is originally from Kenya in East Africa. His humble upbringing taught him the drive and work ethic which has allowed him to become the best in his class. Odhiambo now communicates these tough life lessons and experiences to his audience. He strongly believes that even though we start the race in different places, at the end of the day, what you put in is what you will get back. Be an upstander, not a bystander!

   


School 11 students and staff were highly entertained with a performance from the Canadian Marching Band.  Enjoy the short clip of the band performing "Come Sail Away."

 
Youth Week Winner! Congratulations to Daniel Gamulyak for winning second place in the Youth Week Poster Contest!

Mrs. Morrison's second grade class just read a story called The Dog Who Dug for Dinosaurs.  As a class, we decided to do some exploration of our own.  We dug for fossils and discovered shark teeth, ammonites, brachiopods, and crinoid stems.  We dug for dinosaur eggs in a sand pit and found models of a T-Rex, Brachiosaurus, and Triceratops.  The children then used the dinosaurs to classify them.  Some of the children decided to classify them by shape, color, and texture. Other students decided to classify them by what they ate. We also dug for bones of a T-Rex. The students then put together a model of the T-Rex with the bones that they found. Using the model the children determined what the dinosaur ate, where they lived, and how they survived.

A great night was had by all that attended our Family Math Night!  The students and their families enjoyed some quality educational time by playing fun and interesting math games.  This night would not have been a success without the help of our teachers, Mrs. Angelillo, Mrs. Kenning, Ms. Kropilak, Mrs. Labriola, Mrs. Love, Ms. Palladino, and Ms. Zubaly.

Recently, our students enjoyed a visit from some very special friends from down under!

 

Our students had a blast during School Spirit Week!  The children were very creative in celebrating Mismatched Monday, Twin Tuesday, Wacky Hair Wednesday and Crazy Hat Thursday.  Thank you to all that participated.  Your donations are greatly appreciated!

The Cat in the Hat returned to School Eleven to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. The Cat was feistier than ever.  Oh what fun we had!

Mrs. Kane's class celebrated today's Minion Day in style! School Eleven students are one in a "minion"

Thank you Lonnie Allgood for inspiring our students! Dreams for Kids, Inc., founded by Mr. Allgood, focuses its efforts on raising the consciousness of children to encourage them to dream big.  By and large one of the most powerful messages of the day was "Respect and love are free so why don't we give them away all day?"

 
 
Reading Under the Stars 2015

On Friday evening stargazers observed the moon, the Pleaides open star cluster, M15 globular star cluster, double double (two double stars close to each other) Albireo (double star), the ring nebula which looks like a smoke ring, and at the end of the evening several people caught a glimpse of the Andromeda Galaxy. Students blasted off for adventure in the district-owned Star Lab inflatable planetarium, visited the Black Hole Reading Nook and participated in other related learning activities.

Special thanks to the eighth grade Woodrow Wilson Middle School students who visited our fourth grade students as part of the Sidekicks peer mentoring program.  This program takes the proactive approach to character education, allowing our eighth and fourth grade students to spend time together.  Students have the opportunity to discuss goal setting, sportsmanship, kindness, internet safety, drugs and alcohol, and anti-bullying. 

 

 

School Eleven proudly presents our 100 first marking period Galaxy Club members.  Way to go everyone! Keep reading and your star will continue to shine all year!

Thanks to the Rotary Club third grade students were the lucky recipients of new dictionaries.

School Eleven truly is the "Heart of the Community".  Thank you for your kindness, generosity and holiday spirit!
