Mr. Pineda’s students learn how to pick up chicks!

Yes, you read that correctly! Mr. Pineda’s students learned how to pick up chicks last week! Students learned about incubators and how important they are when they studied the conservation of endangered species like California Condors and Whooping Cranes.  Then, they had the chance to see how it’s really done, as the incubator was set with 40 Nankin Bantam eggs from Mr. Pineda’s farm.  The chickens are used to help study genetics, anatomy, physiology, animal behavior, flight, ethics, and ecology.  But, we don’t think the kids even notice how much they’re learning because the chicks are so much fun to play with….oops….we mean study!

Scholar’s Brunch

This morning our students enjoyed a delicious brunch sponsored by the NMS PTSG. Students feasted on donuts, fruit, bacon, cereal, and juice. Well deserved for working so hard this trimester! Thank you to the PTSG for providing the food and to Mrs. Bulkow, Mrs. Connelly, and Mrs. Morehouse for serving our students.
