Simple machines project 2019 Fourth-grade class creates amusement park
Students in Ian Clerkin’s fourth-grade class learned about six types of simple machines in the world. 
 
The students were shown examples and how the machines help objects work more efficiently. They then started to look for examples both in the classroom and around the school, identifying the characteristics that made it a simple machine. Finally, students took this knowledge and discovered that amusement parks had quite a few examples. 
 
Following all of this, the class completed a project that required them to design an amusement park, complete with rides that featured one or more of these simple machines. Finally, they chose one of these rides to bring to life, either by using physical materials or by using TinkerCad, a 3D rendering program to 3D print their location. 
 
Fourth-grade class hikes to white rock Fourth-grade class hikes to White Rock
Crystal Wood’s fourth-grade class hiked to White Rock recently, experiencing a place that students can see on the hillside, but a place in which many had not visited. 
 
Fourth-grade teacher Lindsay Johnson and aide Carol George accompanied the students on the trip, as well as retired WCS science teacher Frank Ward, who served as a nature guide.
 
During the hike, the class picked up garbage along the trail, filling a full large garbage bag with trash. Students enjoyed the experience of the hike.
 
Music students participate at festival in Pennsylvania
Walton’s high school band, orchestra, and chorus recently participated in the High Note Music Festival in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 
 
Each year the music department prepares all semester to play for high quality music judges at a spring adjudication festival. This year’s adjudicators were music professors from nearby colleges. 
 
Each judge gave written and verbal comments as the musicians performed. These recordings are used to help educate and encourage the students and give them hints about how to be better musicians and performers.
