Who says science has to be boring?
At Kosciuszko School, fifth grade students in Ms. Janusiak's class read the book Poppy. In the book, there are references to owl pellets.
What is an owl pellet? Is it owl dung? No, an owl pellet is a ball of bones, fur, scales, and feathers of animals the owl eats which it cannot digest. This ball is then regurgitated in the form of a pellet. The fifth grade students completed an online dissection of an owl pellet, and then were given the real thing!
From April 14 - April 18, students from Cudahy Middle School will have the unique opportunity to visit and experience the Nature's Classroom Institute.
On Saturday, March 8, Cudahy Middle School will host 297 students for the annual Cudahy Middle School Music Festival. This festival is for students in grades 4 through 6 in the Cudahy orchestra and band programs. The students have been working extremely hard with their music teachers to prepare for this event. Each student has prepared a short piece that demonstrates technical and musical skills which have been taught in school. The students will play in front of an adjudicator and receive a rating based on his or her performance.
Author Ji-li Jiang will visit the Cudahy Middle School on April 4th. The students plan to read her book Red Scarf Girl to prepare for the visit. Red Scarf Girl is Jiang's memoir of her childhood during the cultural revolution in China.
This will be a very exciting event!

The students will display their multiplication skills by competing against one another in a tournament. For about two minutes, children see multiplication problems. Whoever gets the most problems correct will advance to the next round.
During this school year, Kosciuszko and most recently Lincoln School are acknowledging students who exhibit these character traits:
