Water Project Follow-Up
Thanks to the SVMS community and other donors, the Buterana community in Rwanda received a well that will allow for a safe and close clean water supply. Amid drizzling and cold conditions, the Living Water Rwanda team was celebrated with song and dance as they brought the equipment into the community. Approximately 100 families in Buterana had depended upon a hand dug well, an unprotected spring and surface water to meet their water needs. Now they have access to clean water.
Digital Learning Day at SVMS
Sun Valley Middle School students and teachers celebrated National Digital Learning Day on Wednesday, February 5th. Digital Learning Day is a nationwide event celebrating creative and effective uses of digital learning in the classroom. More than 216 schools celebrated this day in North Carolina alone.
Many teachers used this opportunity to try out new digital lessons in their classroom by incorporating Google Apps for Education tools, such as Google Draw, Google Forms, and Google Documents. Several classes used research tools to define vocabulary words or find information about famous people. Math classes used Google Presentation to create scatter plots and shareable study guides. Art students created digital critiques while some Social Studies students created digital timelines about Black History month. Webquests, QuizBowls, and Jeopardy were also part of the day.
