Our K-2 students are showing off their singing skills. Look out @thevoice #throwbackvideoresolution
Don't miss their live performance of Jingle Bells with some of the cast from SHN's White Christmas Show on Thursday, Dec. 15th. The caroling will start at about 3:30 P.M. and our students will be invited up on stage at about 3:50 P.M. This event will be taking place in front of Nordstrom on the lower level at the Hillsdale Mall.
Try being stuck in a snow globe for Christmas. Ok, don't actually get into a snow globe, just imagine what you would feel if you were. That perspective is kind of terrifying.
Last week, our 4th graders imagined that very same scenario and came up with some amazing work. Check it out.
Notre Dame Elementary is in the holiday spirit! All students from NDE have decorated an ornament that is on display on a tree at the Hillsdale Shopping Center. Our NDE tree can be seen upstairs, by Nordstrom, near the Giants Dugout Store. It was happily decorated by Student Council members and teachers with NDE colors and handmade ornaments. Stop by and take a look as you do your holiday shopping!
4th grade students set up terrariums to begin their unit in science. Wondering what a terrarium is? It's time for the students to be the teacher.
Our awesome SLC at NDE organized a Beach Clean Up in Half Moon Bay. It looks pretty cold! We are so proud of their efforts. #NDEfamily
Students enjoyed a fun day full of amazing food and cultural experiences they will remember for a life time. Follow them on their journey!
Our 8th grade has been learning strategies to work through some pretty difficult word problems.
One of those strategies is the 5-Step Plan, which goes like this:
Step 1: Ask yourself what the problem is asking for
Step 2: Assign the variable(s) and state any formulas
Step 3: Write the equation
Step 4: Solve
Step 5: Check your work and revisit Step 1
This strategy was reinforced when students wrote their own word problems to solve. Then, the students solved their problem and made a poster for their problem. Finally, each student presented their problem to the class. It’s was a lot of fun having the students be the teacher and it also promotes higher order learning.
Fifth grade held a campaign and election to vote the next candy to be the President of the United States: Twix versus Sour Patch Watermelon. Fourth grade came in to help vote as well.
