BAKER CELEBRATES EARTH DAY WITH SONG

The theme of the second grade concert at Baker was Earth Day. Under the direction of music specialist Kristin Dzuranin, the second grade learned songs fostering conservation like “Every Day is Earth Day,” “The Recycle Rap,” “Plant a Tree,” and “I am the Earth.”  The children also wore green shirts decorated with a special Buddy Bear Earth Day logo. The logo was designed by Baker computer teacher, Mark Ambrosino. This concert was a real collaborative effort between the second grade classroom teachers, the music program, and the “Cubputers” class at Baker. In Cubputers class, each child designed a picture which was integrated into the finale song’s  slide show, also  created by Mr. Ambrosino. Parents were delighted to hear their children sing and see the magnificent slide show background. The second grade team at Baker is composed of teachers Scott Rowan, Sara Bottinelli, Michelle Dzamko, and Julie Seiler. The team is rounded out by paraprofessionals Michelle Powell, Alice Francisco, Martha Di Rienzi, and Julie Close.

French Students Correspond with Pen Pals in France

Mr. Dippolito’s French 1 and French IV Honors classes have been participating in a written cultural exchange on Edmodo. About 60 MHS French students have been corresponding with (3) French high schools and (1) French middle school. These schools are located in the towns of Carcassonne, Nancy, Bordeaux and Toulouse.
 
Mr. Dippolito together with French colleagues choose current social/political issues facing both the US and France.  Articles from French and American newspapers are selected, which are distributed to students in both countries. Topics are then debated in class, and students then write to each other to discuss these issues in both English and French.
 
Some issues our students have investigated and discussed include the new open carry gun law on college campuses in Kansas, and the protests and social unrest in France caused by new labor law reforms.
 
Mr. Dippolito’s French students have worked diligently on their e-mails and have been extremely patient and polite to their French pen pals.  Both the American and the French students have learned to keep an open mind, have learned a lot from each other, are becoming better writers and more importantly better global citizens as a result of this exchange.

MHS – Science Fair Excellence

On Saturday, March 19, 2016, MHS Science Teacher and club advisor, Mr. Sean Watson, accompanied four student members of the Moorestown High School Science and Engineering Club to the 35th Annual Coriell Institute Science Fair. Held at the Blackwood Campus of Camden County College, the fair showcases the scientific talents of 6th through 12th grade students as they “demonstrate their passion for science in exceptional projects that span the sciences, including biochemistry, botany, computer science, mathematics, medicine and health, physics, and zoology.”

The projects presented by the MHS students were well represented in the high school portion of the fair’s awards of excellence. In the junior/senior division, a Moorestown junior was awarded the coveted First Place prize in the Environmental Science category. In the freshmen/sophomore division, a Moorestown sophomore completed the sweep of the Environmental Science category by also achieving the coveted First Place prize; while two MHS freshmen won highly-touted Honorable Mention awards in the Environmental Science and Earth and Space Science categories.

The First Place winners will advance to the Delaware Valley Regional Science Fair (DVSF), which will be held March 29th-31st, 2016 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

We offer best wishes to MHS’s first place winners on the next leg of their scientific journey…and congratulations to all the members of this talented Moorestown contingent.

MHS – Innovation and Entrepreneurship Winners

In February 2016, teams of students enrolled in MHS Business Teacher Mr. Adam Roth’s Honors Entrepreneurship class entered a total of 13 business concepts to the Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship competition. In this 13th annual battle of entrepreneurial acumen, students were given the challenge to create a business idea and submit it to a panel of judges comprised of university professors and experts in business and entrepreneurship. Open to all high school students in the state of New Jersey, the university received a total of 390 submissions.

In March 2016, Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship competition judges reviewed the submissions and selected the teams with the most innovative ideas and business proposals – in three categories split over the Northern and Southern Regions of New Jersey. These teams then qualify to receive prestigious awards, including:

  • Regional Winners – receive scholarships to FDU worth $10,000, renewable for all four years of undergraduate school and a $150 certificate,
  • Finalists – receive a certificate of $50, and
  • Semifinalists – receive a certificate of $25.

Three teams from Moorestown High School, consisting of 13 students in grades 11 and 12, were given the high honor of being selected to attend the competition’s culminating Awards Ceremony in April.

On April 1, 2016, these MHS students received Semifinalist awards for the business concepts they so creatively developed and submitted – WaterGate Swim Shorts, ischoolU, and Find My Ballz.

We offer our congratulations…and salute Mr. Roth and his business students for their continued excellent entrepreneurial endeavors.

Pet Eggs and Responsibility

Mrs. Furman’s 2nd grade class at Mary Robert’s Elementary is studying a responsibility unit. The students read a story called Barnaby’s Bunny. In this story, Barnaby’s classmates had to take care of a pet egg to show their teacher they each could be responsible. The student created their own pet egg and are busy taking care of it for a week to experience the word “responsible”. They hope they don’t break their egg.
