  • Where: Toledo Campus East Building Tech Lab
  • Who: 3rd – 6th level
  • What: Scratch Day is a day for students who want to learn Scratch, or have already learned it. There will be many activities for students without accounts, and anyone with a Scratch account will be able to share some of their projects in a show-and-tell.

What is Scratch?

Scratch is a programming language for kids developed at MIT. There is a website for kids to learn scratch programming and share their projects. It is very simple and easy, but is sometimes used to make very complicated projects. Some Scratchers like to post art or animations on scratch, while others post games, simulations, or stories.

If you are interested in attending, please email jschoepf@wsmctoledo.org.

On April 22, 2015 the Upper Elementary classes (Monarch and Karner Blue) celebrated Earth Day.  The Spirit planned a zero waste lunch where each classroom tried to get the least amount of trash, not including recyclables or compost.  Karner Blue won, but each classroom had less than a pound of waste.

The U.E. Environmental Club planned Earth Day activities for their classmates.  The theme was B.B.B. or Bring Back Butterflies.  These activities were not only fun but also educational.  UE played a Monarch butterfly migration game where the students acted as butterflies and followed a migration path to their summer and winter habitats.   Then the students received scenarios that either preserved or demolished the habitat of the Monarch.  A scavenger hunt/trail walk was also part of the Earth Day celebration.  The students walked on the trails lead by an Environmental Club member searching for paper butterflies with the name of butterflies native to Northwestern Ohio.  The scavenger hunt list had numbers one through eight and dashes to put each letter of the butterfly’s name on.  It also had circled letters on one of of each butterfly name.  At the end, all the circles letters on the scavenger hunt list spelled out a secret word which was EARTH DAY.  The students also made butterfly feeders to take home.  The feeder was made by using a sponge and twine and a receipe for butterfly nectar (sugar water) was also included.  Upper Elementary students all had fun and learned that they on get one earth and they need to preserve it.

Members of the Monarch Room have been busy cleaning, transplanting, and planting seeds in our UE garden.  Our raised beds were weeded. We used composted material from student’s lunches to help fertilize the beds.  We’ve planted radishes, lettuce, and spinach.  Those are all vegetables that have a plant to harvest time of less than 45 days.  We are hoping to harvest our first crop before summer break and have a delicious garden party with our harvested vegetables.   We will then plant a summer crop that will be ready just in time for our return to school.

We also have been raking and cleaning out our butterfly garden.  We have trimmed the butterfly bushes.  Many of our perennials are coming up again including our milkweed.  Monarch students will also be reseeding the garden with butterfly friendly flowers once again this year.
