While our eighth graders were off in Washington DC, Ms. Stanton engaged our sixth graders in a game of Capture the Football! The 6 red team wore red and the 6 white team wore white. Both teams played hard! In the end, the score was tied 5-5. Thank you to Ms. Stanton and the sixth grade teachers for organizing this fun event!
Come have Coffee with the Counselors on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. This will be just before the 6:30 p.m. Chorus Concert. Ms. Santiago and Ms. Thomas will be holding a question and answer session, as well as offering resources surrounding school based anxiety. Even though we haven’t had summer break yet, they can offer some tips on how to get your students motivated to start the next school year off right. This event will be held in the NMS library. We hope to see you there!
The Merrimack River Watershed – shaped by human and natural influences – served as a living laboratory for the study of ecosystems and earth science for our 5th grade students last week!
Our students traveled by boat in Lowell’s canals to explore how natural and human forces are changing the Merrimack Watershed. We collected water samples, performed tests, and analyzed data. Students also built and tested water filters to assess their ability to clean polluted water and used models to explore how the world’s water is distributed. What a great learning experience. A big thank you to Mrs. Worth for organizing this trip!
