As a member of the Student Advisory Council meeting for lunch with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton recently, Ian Harris came prepared. “I made a list,” the 8th grader at Pennington School said. Ian’s list was compiled of things he wanted to share with Dr. Hamilton, all issues that impact his day to day educational experience. When it was his turn, he told the superintendent that students at Pennington aren’t allowed to stop at their lockers throughout the day; the result being that they’re carrying around heavy book bags from class to class.
“Science” was the big word of the day at Lincoln Elementary School on Feb. 2, when students in all grade levels celebrated the various methods and principles of scientific inquiry at the school’s annual Science Fair. Elaborately created tri-board displays lined hallways and classrooms as students in the third through sixth-grades toured the building with their teachers. Outside visitors included parents, grandparents and school officials, who were happy to see their science research work and often quizzed students on the details of their displays.
