IPOD Drive

***iPOD DRIVE FOR LOCAL SENIOR CITIZENS – DECEMBER 8 – 12***On November 4, FWPA presented the documentary, “Alive Inside,” to students at a special assembly. The movie demonstrated the transformative power of music when elderly dementia patients were given iPods loaded with their favorite music. The positive effect of the music on these seniors was life changing. As a follow up to the movie, FWPA’s Community Service club is holding a schoolwide drive for gently used iPods that are no longer needed, as well as accepting cash donations to help support seniors with music therapy through musicandmemory.org.

Thank you to the FWPA PTSA for providing funding for the movie screening. If you would like to see a clip from the movie, please go to http://www.mnn.com/health/fitness-well-being/stories/alive-inside-new-documentary-shows-how-music-can-reawaken-alzheime#ixzz3GuP2TOD7.

6th Graders!  Remember the Brick Project is due

Tuesday November 18th!

IMG_5645

Sixth grade students were issued the challenge of building a brick to Ancient Mesopotamian Standards.  

The Standards Are:

  1. The Brick can be rolled to building sites without crumbling or falling apart.
  2. The Brick can withstand the weight of other bricks stacked on top of it.
  3. The Brick is dried so well that it does not wash away in the rain. (Some erosion did occur, but not enough to seriously weaken the bricks.)
  4. The Brick is made only of materials that were available in Ancient Mesopotamia.
