Arrowhead kindergarteners from Ashley Eich’s class made Halloween a learning experience. Students took turns feeling the insides of a pumpkin and describing it:  “Icky, gooey, wet, sticky, gross” were the popular results.  They also reviewed shapes by using them to draw a face on the pumpkin.

Christine Wray (kindergarten assistant) led an experiment to see whether a pumpkin will sink or float. (Spoiler alert: It floated!)


And first grade students in Tracy Szczesniak’s class at Windsor Woods confirmed that no matter how big, fat and heavy they are, pumpkins do indeed float!


Cox High School held a National Science and  Math Initiative (NMSI) ceremony on Halloween, and students who scored a 3, 4, or 5 on an Advanced Placement exam in math, science, or English last year received $100. Gifted Resource Teacher Kay Roberson says that students who graduated last year will receive their checks in the mail.

Junior Jordan Estes is one of the students who received an award check from NMSI. She scored well on her AP Physics exam.
