South Bay Stands Up to Bullying

As part of National Bullying Prevention Awareness month in October, third-grade students in Debbie LoSardo’s class at South Bay Elementary School read “The Juice Box Bully” and “Stand Up.” The class discussed the different types of people involved in bullying and the roles they play. They also made a chart and started a paper chain with thoughts on bullying, which they will add every time a student performs a kind act.

STEM Activity

Students were put into teams and given a simple 8 1/2 x11 paper. Their task was to create the longest paper chain possible out of that paper. The twist to this challenge was that, before they could add the paper to their chain, they had to write a sentence about STEM. The chains ranged from about 6 inches to over 5 feet.

This summer, many students completed and turned in summer reading and math assignments. This is a wonderful thing to take part in, as it helps students to strengthen and boost their academic skills through the summer months. Today at South Bay, we recognized these students for their hard work and dedication to their studies.

For the first day of school on Sept. 5, students at South Bay Elementary School participated in hands-on activities during their library classes. After reading “Rosie Revere, Engineer,” the students spoke about perseverance and how it relates to the STEM activities. Groups of students were given buckets of K’Nex, Legos, and other building supplies and tasked with engineering anything they wanted. They created toys, roller coasters and other useful tools.
