STEM Camp off to a great start!

 STEM camp (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is off to a great start! The upcoming fourth and fifth graders have engaged in various "challenges" with their peers. The challenge is presented and then they take time to devise a plan with their group. Most of the challenges are interdisciplinary and involve intensive collaboration, problem-solving and teamwork skills.

On day one, the theme was "Tower Power" and students built towers with materials like cups and pipe cleaners and learned about stability and the importance of a strong foundation.

On day two the theme was "SOAR" and students designed airplanes to hold cargo. Next, they created a safety device for dropping an egg from a height of 12 feet in hopes of keeping "Eggbert" from cracking.

Day three was "Density Day", and students explored the scientific concept of density with a milk, food coloring, and dish soap activity. Density Day also allowed students to create their own oil and water jars to take home. The students were shocked when they saw the water sink to the bottom of the jar when they had hypothesized that oil would be more dense.

Day four was a favorite for the students as we designed a boat out of aluminum foil that could withstand the weight of an entire jar of coins! The second activity gave students exposure with various types of bridges and they constructed their own out of straws.

Each day the STEM students discuss the potential real-world careers that would be related to the day's activities. We are excited to spend the last few days exploring and learning together!
 

Mr. Moy Named Orchestra Teacher of the Year

Ferndale orchestra teacher Ben Moy was named Teacher of the Year for District 4 by the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association (MSBOA). Fittingly, Moy, who also swings a mean lightsaber, learned he had received the award on May 4th (May the 4th Be With You), also known as international Star Wars Day.

Congratulations, Ben. We're so glad you have been recognized outside the district for the amazing work we have grown to appreciate over the years.

Elementary Reading Night

The Ferndale Elementary Staff and Students celebrated an amazing month of reading with our Camp Read S'More family reading night. Kids and families explored the school, participating in literacy activities, making arts and crafts, browsing the amazing reading-decorated doors of FUEL, and celebrating their commitment to reading! Special thanks to all of the teachers and staff members who created and led the fun stations!

The Ferndale Library set up a table at Elementary Reading Night.
