Junior high science teacher, Mrs. Schimon, has added the use of 3D printers to the Project Lead the Way (PTLW) activities this year. Mrs. Schimon is teaching her seventh and eighth grader students how to write code, how to use the 3D printers, and the basics of engineering and technology in science.
In order to integrate new technology and a more 21st century approach to science, they have been doing more hands-on projects in Project Lead the Way. “This is fun as well as educational,” Schimon said, “because the students are able to create their own projects and be more involved in the activities.”
They are currently starting a robotics course, and will be making robots soon.
About thirty CCJH choir students will gather with other Christian Schools in the Northwest this Tuesday to take part in the annual ACSI Junior High Musicale.
Led by their Choir Director Mrs. Hinojos, will share their talents and love of music with the pubic by collaborating with the other schools to create a memorable concert.
Mrs. Hinojos explained that at this event, students get to, "see what it is like to prepare their part and then come together with total strangers to create beautiful music. They also get the experience of learning from other directors and getting feedback to apply back home."
In addition, she added, "This experience provides the students with many enjoyable memories. They meet new friends they otherwise would never meet."
With a grand-slam home run by Carle in the bottom of the fifth inning, Cougar baseball brought home a season-opening win over Vashon 8-0 on Monday afternoon.
The game was scoreless through the first four and half innings, until a walk by Hannah, single by Adams, and another single by Fox loaded the bases. Hannah got the Cougs on the board by scoring on a passed ball, then Carle hit a home run to left field. Bartels, Woolery, and Hannah singled, Adams drew a walk, and Fox singled again, and the Cougs left the fifth inning with 8-0 lead.
Pitchers Fox (1 hit, 1 walk, and five strikeouts) and Carder (0 hits, 3 walks and 6 strikeouts) combined for the shutout.
Cascade Christian is proud to announce a unique and exciting venture that, beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, will give all High School students access to a Microsoft Surface with a keyboard and Pen. We believe that a one-to-one device program will enable us to better provide all students with a technological tool that will enhance their learning and achievement. This tool will afford them greater opportunities to be productive students and citizens as they enter a global environment that will require greater technology skills, collaboration, and teamwork. For more information, see our Technology @ CCS web pages.
Watch for more about how technology is being used in our Kindergarten Prep through 8th grade classrooms as well!
Feverishly working behind the scenes at every campus of Cascade Christian Schools is an amazing program dedicated to building the community that is CCS. From Early Learning Centers to High School, there is a group dedicated to each campus.
Parents for Cascade is a volunteer group of parents who dedicate their time and energy to unite parents through relationship and communication as they support the students, teachers and staff wherever there is a need.
Parent-teacher conferences have been part of Cascade Christian Schools since its beginning. Communication with parents about their child’s progress and the opportunity to see samples of their work kept all the key players in the loop – or so we thought. There was one key player missing when these discussions were taking place: the student.
