Mission Monday: PQ Finds ‘Good Reasons’ to Give Back

Welcome to Mission Monday, a series of posts highlighting the ways North Salem students embrace the district mission of engaging in continual improvement, including questioning, defining and solving problems through critical and creative thinking. To learn more about the North Salem Mission, please click here.

Pequenakonck Elementary School’s One Cub recently hosted a kindness-themed assembly that allowed students to meet the beneficiary of their recycling program, Good Reasons Dog Treats. Additionally, One Cub awarded the previous recipient, Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, with a $526 donation.

“These efforts demonstrate our Profile of a North Salem Fifth-Grader as a Problem-Solver,” said Director of Instruction and Human Resources Julio Vasquez. “Specifically, the work our staff and students do to display kind, empathetic, respectful, responsible, honest and safe behavior towards self and others. It also demonstrates their efforts to make intentional choices that demonstrate a concern for a sustainable environment.”

Students rotated between sessions with several of the 16 guest speakers of their choice to gain insight into professional work that they may be interested in pursuing in the future.

Pi Day at North Salem MS/HS was another successful FUNdraiser this year!

The annual festivities were held on March 14 in honor of the first three digits of Pi – 3.14. A pie contest was featured in which 12 pies were entered, with two students, Charlie Reiner and Claire Bonzoni, emerging as the winners. More than 50 slices were sold at $2 each, with the proceeds to be donated to a worthy cause determined by the members of the Math Honor Society. In addition, Hannah Waldinger won the jelly bean guessing contest.

The Math Honor Society members wish to thank all who were able to participate in the festivities and are already looking forward to celebrating Pi Day in 2019.

Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14 was especially sweet for sixth- and seventh-grade students during their Family and Consumer Sciences class.

Teacher Colleen Fodor led students in a heart-healthy whole wheat pancakes cooking lab for the occasion.

“The students had fun putting their culinary skills to the test, and [they] were very creative in decorating their pancakes with delicious fruit toppings,” Fodor said.
