Freeman-Kennedy Students Go To The Voting Polls
Students in grades 3-6 had the opportunity to vote for the next president and senator in Congress on Monday, November 5, 2012.  Voting polls opened at 9:00 a.m. and wrapped up around 2:30 p.m.  As students entered the voting site, they checked in and took their ballot to a voting carrel.  After voting, students checked out and then placed their ballot into the ballot box and anxiously waited to hear the results. At the Freeman-Kennedy School, Mitt Romeny and Paul Ryan won the presidential election with a total of 286 votes.  Barak Obama and Joe Biden came in second with a total of 206 votes.   Senator Brown won by a landslide with a total of 414 votes and Elizabeth Warren came in second with a total of 90 votes.  This was a great experience for everyone!  A HUGE thank-you to Mrs. Whitmore for organizing the presidential election at Freeman-Kennedy School.

 Grade 5 Students Explore Technology and Engineering
The fifth grade students are exploring the engineering process by making paper airplanes.  The children had to form a hypothesis about what design would make for a smooth flying plane and test it.    If it did not fly well, they had to determine why it didn't, and then try a new design.

Grade 5 Teachers 
Attend a Professional Development Workshop on 
Technology and Engineering 
The fifth grade teachers attended a science and technology workshop on the engineering design process at the Christa McAuliffe Center on the Framingham State University campus. Mrs. Grout, Mrs. Horton, and Mrs. O'Toole worked on designs using the steps of the engineering process.  They will be using what they learned in their classrooms as they teach their hands-on science lessons.
