Patricia Adams, grade 4/5 team teacher, is hosting an after school program called "Shake Things Up: Engineering Earthquake Resistant Buildings." Students from team 4/5 meet 2 hours a week after school. Students have simulated an earthquake by building a shake table (just what it sounds like). They have also made a magnitude meter. The whole purpose is to come up with building codes for building earthquake resistant structures. To build these structures students are using common materials such as pipe cleaners, coffee stirrers, and index cards. A pretty cool way to spend the afternoon!
Pittston School awarded a $2500 Fuel Up to Play 60 grant.
Pittston School was awarded $2500 to bring additional physical and nutritional activities to the school this year. This is the second year Pittston has been awarded the monies. Last year, the first year of participation, awarded them $500, along with being the only elementary school in the state to achieve Touchdown status. Touchdown status is reached when you have met and/or exceeded the grant expectations.
This year Pittston School has received a SciTech Grant. Our year-long theme is Engineering Around the World. We are so excited to be one of two schools in the state to receive this grant! We held our first engineering project on October 31st., dropping pumpkins from the school roof! There were 40 in all! Students were grouped with their Book Buddies, each group created a mechanism to protect their pumpkins. Eight pumpkins survived the drop, five split and all the remaining pumpkins had slight cracks! Congratulations to all our future engineers!
As part of our SciTech Grant, we will be sponsoring a Family Engineering evening on November 29. It should be a wonderful evening for families and staff alike. More information will be coming home at a later date.
Each year during Fire Safety Month the Pittston School students and staff participate in an all school evacuation drill with the guidance of the Pittston Fire department and area law enforcement. This year’s evacuation drill was a great success! In addition, students had multiple opportunities to learn about fire safety with our Pittston Firefighters by participating in a fireman’s muster, the smoke house, and classroom activities. We greatly appreciate the time the Pittston Firefighters give to our school!
