A Special Guest in the Lower School! PDF Print E-mail

Here at Newberry Academy, we love our parents and it's always an honor to have one of them come into our classroom to talk about their jobs and experiences. Last week, Jason Huggins, father of 4th grader Justin and 2nd grader J.P., spoke to Mrs. Wilbanks' and Mrs. Pruett's classes about his role as a solider in the U.S. Army. Mr. Huggins, who is currently stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky, shared his deployment experiences and took time to answer the students' questions. He even surprised them by sharing that he too was a former Newberry Academy student, and fondly remembered his 4th Grade teacher, Mrs. Sylvia Gibson. We thank Mr. Huggins for taking the time to visit with our classes and for his dedicated service to our country!


Fourth Graders Create Their Own Robot PDF Print E-mail


Mrs. Wilbanks' Fourth Grade Class has recently been studying the 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, as well as focusing on the concept of green science. Using the tools they have learned, the class worked together to build a robot by reusing a soda can from the school lunchroom. By working in small groups, the students created Roger, who can move both forward and backwards. He has arms made of flexible straws, which can be posed; the students definitely like the "Dab" pose the best! Today they posted their creation to the 1st through 5th Grade Classes, as well as the 8th Grade Science Class. Everyone was very impressed, and Mrs. Wilbanks was especially proud of how well the students worked together on this project!
