day) students in Mrs. Hayes’ Spanish class
learned about the importance of this day for
those of Hispanic/ Latino culture. Our fourth

speaker who came to the class and shared the

about her childhood and her family traditions,
and were given the opportunity to try some
traditional Puerto Rican
foods, arroz con dulce ( a dish similar to rice
pudding), and Florecitas, a flower shaped
cookie similar to a wafer cookie with frosting.

8th grade class researched
aerodynamics and friction to learn a thing or
two about how airplanes fly.Each group composed a three page paper
based on their findings.With this information, they designed

To test the efficiency of
their models, they held an airplane drop from
the roof of the school.Each design proved different in the

This was a fun and engaging way for students to
apply what they had learned.
