The Case of the Mysterious Hallways

Guest Post By: Angela Chock, 6th Grade

     Have you ever noticed the signs in the hallways that say things like “Sally Ride Lane” or “Wright Brother’s Way?” Well, next time that you are walking in the hallway, make sure to look at the walls in search for “Lindbergh Lane,” and “Christa McAuliffe Blvd.” But the real question is… What are they for? I went around the school in search of these names. I found that in the 4th and 1st grade hall, the sign was “Christa McAuliffe Blvd,” in the Kindergarten hallway the sign was “Wright Brother’s Way.” Also, in the 2nd and 6th grade hallway, we found the sign “Lindbergh Lane.” And that’s not all, in the lunchroom hallway it says “Sally Ride Lane.” Something interesting that we found was that the 5th and 3rd grade hallway did not have a sign at all!

     We went on one of the school’s computers, (thank you Amelia Earhart Elementary) and searched all of the names. Christa McAuliffe was killed in a space shuttle, and lost her dreams of becoming the first teacher in space. She had very much to do with Amelia Earhart- her bravery, her aviation, and so forth. Sally Ride was the first woman in space, the first female astronaut. And Lindbergh, we found, is a the name of a famous blimp. The Wright Brother’s built and invented the first airplane. The reason the last hallway, the 5th and 3rd grade hall, has no name is because when they built Amelia Earhart Elementary, that hallway wasn’t even there. The hallway was built later. 

     I also wanted to go around and ask the teachers, specifically the ones who have been here from the beginning, what they knew about the signs. I was told that the Lindbergh does not only mean the blimp, but also Charles Lindbergh, the aviator. All the other things that they told me I had found out already. The one big thing that I found was that the signs all had something to do with aviation. 

     I have an idea. I think we should name the last hallway Armstrong Ave. What do you think? We may even put up a sign for it!

 

 

Let the Races Begin!

Mrs. Sheffer and Mr. Jeppesen's 6th grade classes held their annual Chariot Races Thursday, February 19th. The students have been learning about ancient Rome and they re-enacted ancient chariot races in the school's gym. They constructed chariots and the students worked as teams and pulled them through the course. Before the race, there was a procession through the halls announcing the race. This was a really fun way to learn about ancient Rome.

The students really enjoyed it!

Art Days

On Friday, January 23rd, we had a really fun opportunity. Mrs. Plant came in to give our students a fun and interesting art lesson about Value.

She met with each grade level for a lesson then the students went back to their classrooms to do an activity where they were able to apply what they had just learned. 

 

Students learned how to see where shadows appear when light is shown on an object.

They learned the different values in the shadows and how shadowing can make a flat shape appear 3-D.

They also learned about Leonardo DiVinci and got to see examples how he used value in his work. 

It was a great activity and we are so fortunate to have Mrs. Plant teach our students.

 

Thank you Mrs. Plant!

Annual Christmas Sing-in

On Friday, December 19th, we had our annual Christmas Sing-in. This is a holiday tradition we have here at Amelia Earhart. Each grade prepares their favorite holiday song and they perform it for the whole school and community members. It's always a lot of fun and it really gets us excited for the holiday season. We finish off by all singing "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Each grade and the staff all have a certain part that we all sing together. It's a lot of fun! Here are the pictures of all the different grades this year:

   

 

 

Family Read-a-Thon

     
     

 

Thank you to the many parents and volunteers who came and read with our awesome students at our annual Read-a-Thon!

We were honored to have Mayor John Curtis, Superintendent Keith Rittel, and many school district and community members here. It's always a fun activity and it is a good chance to share the love of reading with our students. 

Thank you so much! 

   

Rachel’s Challenge

By: Katie Estrada & Hannah Gonzalez

 

     In September, we had a Rachel’s Challenge assembly. In case you don’t remember or you weren’t there, here’s what it was about. Rachel Scott was a kind girl and was very sweet and nice to everyone. Her parents found her handprints behind her dresser with the words, “These hands belong to Rachel Joy Scott and will someday touch millions of hearts.”  Rachel’s Challenge is a program that reminds students of the importance of being kind and positive towards others.

To accept Rachel’s Challenge you have to do the following:

1. Use kind words and do kind things.

2. Accept and include others.

3. Choose positive influences.

4. Set goals.

5. Keep a journal.

     Students were given the opportunity to accept Rachel's Challenge. Those who chose to, signed a banner pledging that they will try to be positive and kind towards others. The banner is hanging outside the lunch room to remind us to be kind. Also, Mr. McCarty reminds us everyday during morning announcements to remember our pledge and reads off messages to remind us to be kind and positive.

     So, we know we are going to accept Rachel’s Challenge and we invite you to join us.

Choir/Orchestra Christmas Concert

Thank you to our amazing choir and orchestra for performing such wonderful show for us on December 3rd! They played and sang a variety of holiday songs and it really got us in the holiday spirit. Our choir and orchestra students put in many hours to prepare to perform for us we are so glad they are willing to share their talents and hard work with us. A special thank you to our orchestra teacher, Janie Chambers, and our choir director, Mrs. Linda Seamons, for the many hours of preparation that went into such a great show!  Also, a very special thank you to Mr. Kent Seamons for being so willing to share his time and talents by accompanying the choir.
