Math Olympiad Team Explores Mobius Band

Math Olympiad Team Explores Mobius Band

This morning, the Warren Street Math Olympiad team learned about Mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius and his famous Möbius loop/band/strip.

The team guessed how many surfaces and edges in cylinders and the loop, and then completed the task of creating one!

Following Mr. Chamberlain’s suggestion, Mrs. Connelie went home and made a cylinder and Möbius loop out of Fruit by the Foot. Snacks will never be served the same way again!

Special thanks to Mr. Chamberlain and Mr. Novotny for their guest instruction today! What a treat for us all!

Dismissal Notice

*Reminder*

Students who ride the bus or the shuttle dismiss at 3:10.
Students who are walking or get picked up dismiss at 3:15.

All buses must leave Glebe prior to the release of students who are walking or getting picking up. We realize this may be a change from your previous school. All of the buses go to each of the three elementary school to pick up students and Glebe happens to be first!

*We have two dismissal doors for walkers and students getting picked up – one for second grade on the side of the building and and third grade dismisses out front. This seems to speed up the process!

For safety reasons, we cannot allow students to be signed out from the office between 3:00 & 3:10. During this time, our employees are working very hard to prepare for a safe dismissal. While we understand that some days, we do not dismiss walkers/those getting picked up until 3:18… or so… the delay is because we are making sure everyone is where they are supposed to be, thus ensuring the safety of ALL of our students.

Thank you for your patience as we prepare each day for the safe dismissal of over two hundred children, in ten minutes.

Holiday Cards for Children at St. Jude’s

Holiday Cards for Children at St. Jude’s

Throughout the past month, students volunteered to make holiday cards for the children at St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Students created the holiday cards in  the guidance office when they had free time. Mr. Satterlee, Knox health teacher, also incorporated card-making into his psychological health unit and his students did a great job.

This year a total of 115 cards were made. Thank you to all of the students that participated and to Knox Guidance Counselor Mrs. Yetto for coordinating this wonderful holiday tradition.

On the following Wednesday, December 13th, a large number of club members met to wrap the presents, which were then delivered by Presidents Riley Hall and Rachel Lee, together with Vice Presidents Emily Clizbe and Lauryn Wilson.

This donation has been a focus of Student Council during the first part of the school year. Senior President Riley Hall said of the donation that “It is a fantastic way to get involved in the community. I know the other officers enjoy not only getting to help those in need, but it is a fun trip for us as well.”
