Walk-A-Thon & Field Day 2019

Last week we had our annual Walk-A-Thon and Field Day to raise money for our technology needs at school.  The students had a great time walking for a good cause and getting to play field day games and enjoying a snack from the Home and School at the end of the day. Check out our slideshow below of the fun from the day.

Finch robots

Last week 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade tried out Finch robots, which we borrowed from the DCIU STEM Lending Library.  The students enjoyed working with these.  These were a little different becuase the Finch hooks up to a chromebook and stays connected to it in order to be programmed and move.

School Show 2019

At the beginning of the month we had our annual school show.  This years theme was “Holy Cross Rocks America.”  The songs performed all had to do with the USA in some way.  We had two performances, one during the day for our grandparents and then one at night for our families.  The students did a great job during both! Enjoy some photos from the show below.

Bee Bots and Sphero Robots

As a way to have during Terra Nova week Mrs. Eisenman borrowed some Bee Bots and Sphero Robots for our students to use from the Delaware County Intermediate Unit’s STEM Lending Library.  The students had a great time working with both of these items.  Check out some photo/video slideshows of the fun below.

Recent Events

Some fun things have been happening at Holy Cross lately.  We celebrated 100 days of school, and our younger students got to work with another robot called Kibo thanks to the DCIU’s STEM Lending Library.

Check out some of the fun in the slideshows below!

 

Dash and Dot Robots

Thanks to the Delaware County Intermediate Unit’s STEM Lending Library Mrs. Eisenman was able to borrow Dash and Dot Robots for two weeks.  The students used them during technology class and had a great time.  You can see some photos and videos below of the classes using the robots.
