Pictured In Left Photo: On Tuesday, February 14th America’s 16th President came to life and spent the day with Munson students and staff. Thanks to actor Richard Waddingham with Mobile Ed Productions, and the generosity of the Munson PTO, President Abraham Lincoln shared the story of his life, from his humble origins in the backwoods of Kentucky through his trying years in the White House.
Pictured In Top Center Photo: Not all volunteers at Ronald McDonald House (RMH) walk on two legs. Some have four and are full of furry hugs and slobbery kisses like Dimples, a miniature RMH therapy horse, who recently visited students at Maple School, where they are collecting ring tabs as a fundraiser for RMH.
Pictured In Top Right Photo: Students in Becky Mele’s 5th grade Science classes are studying craters, which they learned are formed by the impact of meteors. The students used shallow aluminum pans filled with sand, and dropped different sized balls from varying heights, to see if they could simulate how craters are formed and thereby predict their size and shape.
Pictured In Bottom Photo: Members of Chardon Middle School’s Robotics Club have been busy learning about light sensors, which enable a robot to detect light, making it easier for it to operate autonomously. The club members, working in teams, have been learning to program their robots to react when a certain amount of light was detected. Kudos to members of this team, who were the first to program the light sensor to detect light intensity.
