Landmark works to instill in its students 5 Vital Behaviors that will keep our students on the pathway to success, no matter what they choose to do with their lives. To promote these behaviors, we award Student of the Month accolades on 5 students who have excelled in one or more of these behaviors.
For the month of December those students are the following:
Attendance: Caleb Sottiaux- his attendance this term is nearly 100%!
Nebo School District will be hosting a series of Parent Awareness Nights. The topics of discussion will include mental health and safety planning with youth. Several community service providers will be present to answer question and help individuals to access services.
Right now students are learning EVERYTHING! After Christmas Break, students have only a couple of weeks before the terms ends. So they are buckling down to make sure their work is taken care of. Janna took this picture during 3rd period today... they were packed down there! Something like 22 students working on work from all subject areas!
In Bonzo's painting class, students have been working on landscapes. Their work is currently being featured throughout the halls! Keep your heads up and check it out!
Sueann's Current Events class spent some time building classroom culture and community by tackling some breakout boxes! Students had to work in teams to complete a set of tasks designed to challenge them and to get them to work together. The first group to open their box won! The competition was cut-throat, with one team coming out ahead miliseconds before the other!
Students in Elinda's English class have been preparing to read the book Night, Elie Wiesel account of his time in a concentration camp. To better understand the author's culture, students learned about Jewish holidays, played dreidel, ate flatbread, fig newtons, gold coins, and learned about other features of Jewish Seders (or feasts).
Landmark's greenhouse has poinsettias and Christmas cacti for sale!! The greenhouse is open from 8 to noon M-F. 5, 6, 8 dollars depending on size.
Last week in Cope's biology classes students became more familiar with the anatomy and function of bones. Among some of the many things students learned in the observational lab, students investigated the role of cartilage and calcium and how they work together for strength and flexibility in the skeletal structure.
