March Madness Makerspace Challenge!

These are the first LMS students to try their hand at the March Madness Makerspace Challenge, trying to support a basketball for at least 20 seconds using only newspapers and masking tape.  Structures have to be at least 12″ tall, and we are charting the results.  This group vowed to give it another try so nobody tops their attempt!  Credit to Megan Berry for the idea.  

Student In-Service: Minding Your Mindfulness and Social Media

On March 1, Lionville Middle School ran two student in-service sessions on the pertinent topics of internet safety and mental health.

We were very lucky to have Mr. Andrew Onimus, of the Minding Your Mind organization speak to our students about mental health and share his personal struggle and recovery with depression and anxiety.

We were also excited to have Ms. Renee Marion, Deputy Distric Attorney for Chester County speak to our students about Internet Safety and their digital footprint.

Both sessions were extremely informative and well-reviewed by our school community.

Pen Pals Across the Globe!

With the help of Mrs. DePalma, students in Mrs. Hutelmyer’s English class read I Will Always Write Back and researched Uganda. They used that knowledge to construct questions for their pen pals which were videotaped and will be sent to Katine Primary School. The students will receive the answers to their questions via video in a week or so.
