In 5th grade Science Class the students have been learning from Mrs. Hickman about different transport systems in both plants and animals. The students have grown wheat seedlings in straw chambers, observed transpiration at work by capturing water vapor overnight on living plants, and focused on the importance of the xylem and phloem structures. They have recently been challenged to create a closed circulatory system by using one-way valves, plastic bottles, water, and different tubes to simulate the human circulatory system. The students have also created a "lung" model to demonstrate how the diaphragm works in the respiratory system. This past week, they have measured their vital lung capacity, created a histogram of the different amounts, and using their recently acquired math skills for determining mean, median mode, and range were able to apply these math skills to a real life situation. We've been busy!!!!
Ai enrolled at Championship Martial Arts in Deland at age five and has been attending ever since, often four days a week. By the time she was into her second year, she had shown enough skill at karate that she was participating in demonstrations at fairs, nursing homes and downtown parades. She was also invited to join the school’s competitive team to compete in local and regional tournaments. In nearly four years of tournament competitions, Ai has accumulated dozens of trophies and medals, including a first place in her age bracket for creative weapons at the International Sports Karate Association (ISKA) U.S. Open tournament at Disney in July, 2014. But Ai’s crowning achievement was earning her junior black belt later, on September 27th. At age nine, she was the youngest person ever to earn a black belt in the school’s 20-year history.
Thank you for all the things you've done for me. You have taught me, secured me, helped me, raised me up as a Christian, and kept me safe and dry through the storms. This could not be done alone, you needed teachers, principals, students, parents, and a wonderful headmaster. Thank you for putting all those great people in my life. Know that we the students care.
SBES has a great opportunity to work with the University of Florida's Advertising students to create and develop a Marketing plan for our school. Please help these students by completing a quick 5 minute survey to allow them to gain further insight into our school.
For each survey you complete, 30 minutes of volunteer time will be applied to your family's account. All surveys are confidential and can be accessed below.
