FULL STEAM AHEAD AT LINCOLN MIDDLE SCHOOL
The eighth grade STEAM club members have been busy transforming Lincoln Middle School’s central courtyard. The students recently designed and constructed a cold frame, used to protect plants from the harmful early spring frost. This new addition to the garden was made possible by a grant from Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal (MSUNER).
The idea of building the cold frame originated within the Social Studies department, to have students grow vegetables typically found on a New England colonial farm in order to develop an appreciation of the hardships faced by early American settlers.
With the collaboration of LMS teachers and students, the project has developed into an interdisciplinary learning experience, infusing science, technology, engineering, math, and fun. After harvesting, students will calculate nutritional values and design a farm that would meet the nutritional needs of their families.
Lincoln Middle School worked diligently creating Valentine cards for dosomething.org
In one week, the students handed in 1,168 cards which are donated to Chrill Care in Verona, N.J. The cards will be delivered along with daily meals in their "Meals on Wheels" program, which feeds about 400 seniors.
For every card that was created the children received a free raffle ticket to win Ted E.
In the picture, please find Nicole Leon, our seventh grade student who won Ted E. She, herself, created 64 Valentines in an effort to "share the love" and give Ted E. a new home!
I'm so proud of our LMS students for their loving efforts.
