Members Working With Their Class
Carole Heck, G & T teacher, and Patricia Naples, 6th grade teacher, worked with their homeroom students on the following projects:
Journey North Tulip Test Garden
Journey North Tulip Test Garden is a web-based program that tracks the arrival of Spring around the world. In the Fall students from around the world take measurements (temperature, soil quality, etc.) to determine the best place to plant a tulip garden. they learn about tulip bulbs and how to care for them, then plant their gardens. Information is then uploaded to the Journey North Website and then we can see Spring arrive around the world. Students document when their tulips emerge and bloom through Journey North’s website.
Made By Milk Contest
The Barnegat Lighthouse is an iconic landmark of the Jersey Shore. In October of 2012 Super storm Sandy devastated the New Jersey Shore and surrounding communities. Our community of Little Harbor suffered great damage. Our schools were used as refuge for families displaced by the storm; offering shelter, meals and valuable necessities. If our class is chosen as the winner of the 2013 “Made by Milk” Contest we would use the prize money to develop a safe play area at our school for children. This area could be used by all community members and would also provide fun for the children in the event that another natural disaster strikes our community and our schools are used once again as a safe haven.
