Pumpkin Math Activities

Students in Mrs. Furman’s second grade class competed hands-on pumpkin math activities. The students were asked to work in two groups to predict, count, weigh, compare by subtracting, make groups of ten, solve math word problems and measure pumpkins. We even learned that a 250 pound pumpkin will FLOAT!

Robert’s Garden

The garden at Mary E. Roberts’ Elementary has been in full-bloom this year! This year’s garden was bursting at the seams with tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, onions, mustard spinach, lettuce, pumpkins, sunflowers, and more! During their peak, pumpkins and sunflowers adorned the main office and teachers’ lounge. The Roberts’ Garden has provided staff with full bellies, along with a total of 14 donations to the local food bank! Roberts Elementary is not just Building Warm Hearts and Minds, but serving them too!

Fire Prevention

At Mary Roberts’ Elementary School, Mrs. Furman’s class learned about fire prevention during Fire Prevention Week. Students read books to help them understand how to be safe in a fire. They also learned how to prevent a fire. Each student was asked to create a Fire Escape Plan with their family at home.

Pumpkin Book Reports

At Robert’s School Mrs. Asztalos and Mrs. Furman’s second grade classes created pumpkin book reports. Each student was asked to select their favorite book. Next, the students had to discuss their characters in their story. They each picked one character and created the character on a small pumpkin. Last, the students filled out the book report form that asked them to describe their character and also give their opinion of their book character.

It was AMAZING how proud the students were when they presented their pumpkin reports to their classmates. The pumpkins are displayed around the school.

How Bees Pollinate

At Roberts, the 2nd graders in Mrs. Furman’s class learned about how bees are important in helping plants become pollinated. The students were put into group and given many different items to create their own hand pollinator. Each group had to use sand (pollen) to test their model. They were all a SUCCESS!

MHS – Senior Achieves ACT Excellence

“I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it.” She did…in spectacular fashion. Sundari Parise, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Parise of Moorestown, and a senior at Moorestown High School achieved a level of excellence few students in the United States can claim. Ms. Parise earned an ACT composite score of 36 – the highest score possible for this college entrance exam.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1 through 36.  A student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. On average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score.
Though Ms. Parise admits that a tremendous – sometimes overwhelming – amount of preparation is required for this and other standardized tests, she was continually vigilant not to lose herself in her studies. “I think I struck a good balance between preparing for the future and enjoying the present.”
We congratulate Sundari for her achievement…and wish her continued success in all her future academic endeavors.
