5th Grade students are participating in UNICEF's Kid Power program to get active, learn about kids around the world, and help donate food to kids in need. Here are the details: With every 10,00 steps students earn points towards Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food packets (sometimes referred to as RUTF packets or therapeutic food packets) which contain a specially-designed protein and vitamin-rich peanut paste, allowing children who are severely malnourished to be treated successfully in their communities.
Mrs. Boone's TK class visited the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach as part of their unit on marine life. The Aquarium of the Pacific provides multiple opportunities for students to experience marine science outside the classroom. Students were able to learn "hands-on" about sea creatures and their habitats.

We have just received a new Makerbot 3D Printer from our School District. As a pre-requisite, students that can pass their typing test are allowed to learn to design in 3D with Tinkercad.
Fifth Grade Class with attendance awards. Attendance and wearing uniforms at WESM is promoted through interclass competitions. The sense of competition between classes (with rewards like a popcorn for the class with the best monthly attendance) motivates our students to work together and care for each other. We practice these activities to encourage students to feel accountable to each other for attending class.
Washington Elementary STEM Magnet teacher Laura MacDonald has learned that there is no substitute for activities that require kids to use their hands as well as their minds.
