Two teams from Martinsville Middle School- the Skibidi Toilets and the A-Team- competed against 16 other teams from around the region in the Go Tec VEX Robotics competition yesterday at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research! πŸ€– In this coding and engineering competition, teams compete in a teamwork challenge and robot skills challenges that test their driving and coding abilities. Participation is a great way for these STEM-loving students to grow their engineering, coding, and collaborative skills. The A-Team walked away from the competition with the Most Enthusiastic Award 🌟 and both teams gained some memories and skills that will last a lifetime!

Yesterday, some of our preschoolers had a pizza party! πŸ•πŸ•πŸ• The party was inspired by the book "Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party" by Kimberly and James Dean, which classes read together to practice alliteration. For their own pizza party, these young chefs πŸ§‘β€πŸ³ worked together to write a recipe for their pizza then actually got to create pizzas of their own while remembering the correct order of operations. Everyone agreed that the best part was definitely the taste test!

Today was a perfect day for a field trip! πŸ‚ Our PHES and AHES fourth graders traveled to Fairy Stone State Park today to plant the native black willow trees they have been sprouting in their classrooms thanks to the Dan River Basin Association's Streamside Trees in the Classroom. Students spent the whole day outside at the park, immersed in all things nature. Besides planting their trees, they also learned about the important role riparian buffers play in protecting our waterways, the geology of fairy stones, played a trivia game, and more! Our MHS AP biology students also got in on the fun, preparing and facilitating some creative activities for the younger students! Thank you to all of our amazing high school students, teachers, and community partners who came together to make this day possible for our young learners!

Yesterday, some of our middle school students travelled to Chatham for the Career Choice Youth Expo! Students had the opportunity to speak to employers in a variety of fields from all around the region to learn about various career paths. They even got hands-on experience with some of the tools and technology that they would encounter on the job! Our high school students are at the Expo today. We can't wait to see how engaging with these employers inspires some of our students!

🌦️🌟 Exciting Weather Day at PHES! 🌦️🌟 Today, our fourth-grade students at Patrick Henry Elementary had an unforgettable experience as they welcomed two guest speakers from from WDBJ7 Weather: Chief Meteorologist Brent Watts and Meteorologist Payton Major! Brent and Payton visited the school as part of our fourth grade unit on weather. Students were particularly excited about the visit because they have been recording their own weather reports in class. Payton and Brent showcased the tools they use to measure rainfall, wind, temperature, and humidity and even created a cloud in a bottle to demonstrate the effects of high and low pressure on the weather. ☁️ Students thoroughly enjoyed the whole visit and learned so much more about weather, but they REALLY perked up when the two meteorologists talked about the possibility of snow this winter! β˜ƒοΈ This was a great way for our students to connect real-world experiences to what they have been learning in the classroom! Tune in to WDBJ-7's 6 p.m. newscast tonight and you just might see a quick shoutout to PHES!
