OOPS we did it again!! The middle school ARTSY group met with Ms. Scott, and 16 kids made the coolest, crunchiest slime ever! When you squeeze it, it pops and crunches. I won't let the secret out as to how it does that, you'll have to ask them! We also made fluffy slime, light like clouds. Of course, we had yummy snacks and drinks! Thank you, Mrs. Alspach and Mrs. Nelson for sticking around to help clean up!!!! #NLTigerPride ... See MoreSee Less

Heather Sharp and Deb Scott (MakerSpace) partnered to give the 7th grade an opportunity to explore the Pythagorean Theorem. They did the hands-on activity as a front load to the concept of a^2 + b^2 = c^2. They were given strips of cardboard and worked with partners to construct a working model. The students had a deeper understanding of the concept and were actively engaged.Results are displayed in the main hall showcases! Cardboard was donated by the community. Thank you! #NLTigerPirde ...

Heather Sharp, Lauren Jones, and Deb Scott worked on a project with the 8th grade on how to prove the Pythagorean Theorem. Students were given the dimensions of 3,4,5. They were given cardboard strips to design the a^2 plus b^2 =c^2. A layer of beans was placed in the form and once the middle triangle was removed the beans covered the other units if done correctly. The great thing about this project is that students could see right away if their dimensions were not correct. It was an awesome visual. #NLTigerPride ... See MoreSee Less

Teens are daring each other to eat Tide pods!
Over the years, "challenges" have become a prominent event among teens. Even as adults, we can be challenged to do some death-defying acts. In the recent months, the "Tide pod challenge" has become the highlight of social media. In these posts, kids can be seen biting into brightly colored liquid laundry detergent packets or cooking them in frying pans, then chewing them up before spewing the soap from their mouths. This "challenge" is life threatening, and it has taken the life of many who have attempted it. We urge you to pay close attention to this possible challenge with your child(ren) and explain the serious effects or even the life-threatening implications this challenge could have.
The New London Community School District will not support these "challenges" on our campus. If at any time we are made aware of this or any future challenge taking place, we will investigate and take action, which could possibly result in disciplinary actions. The board policy 502.9 Smoking, Drinking, Drugs states that "unauthorized materials cause material and substantial disruption to the school environment or present a threat to the health and safety of students will not be allowed."
Yours in Education,
Superintendent of Schools ... See MoreSee Less
