Student Leadership through Collaboration

studentengage

SSMS leaders in Ms. Pettry’s class effectively collaborated to explore the question, Citizenship in Athens and Rome: Which Was the Better System?  

During the process of  DBQ,  students collaborate to analyze a variety of primary and secondary source documents.  The students engage in rich dialogue to examine point of view, context, and reliabilty of sources to create an argumentative thesis.

Through this rigorous activity, our students were also demonstrating the use of Habits 1,2, 5, and 6.  Way to integrate leadership and rigorous academics!

During this first week back from winter break, Ms. McEvoy’s students began a collaborative project with  a group of students in Korea.  Her fourth period students began their “video pen pals” adventure with the students on a blog, due to the time difference.  This demonstrated an awesome opportunity for our students and our magnet, and SCREAMS our theme of  “Leadership and Global Connections”!!

H3!: HAPPY HOLIDAYS HURRICANES!

FullSizeRender

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
Down PROACTIVE LANE, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
Our LIGHTHOUSE BEAM will show bright
While walking in our HURRICANE-land.

Gone away is the blue bird,
Here to stay is the new bird
We BEGAN WITH THE END IN MIND,
So everything will be fine
While walking in our HURRICANE-land.

PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST and THINK WIN- WIN always,
SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD!
Using the 7 HABITS during the Holidays,
Will help to make all your dreams come true…

While wrapping gifts  by the fire,
We’ll SYNERGIZE down to the wire
But then we’ll SHARPEN THE SAW,
Singing FA-LA-LA-LA-LA
While walking in our HURRICANE-land!

We send the best holiday wishes to our SSMS Hurricane Team. We wish you all many enjoyable fun-filled moments and adventures during the holidays.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, HURRICANES!
