LTC Advanced Manufacturing Mobile Lab Visit
Farnsworth Middle School PLTW & Technology Education students had the opportunity to tour the LTC Advanced Manufacturing Mobile Lab when they visited our school last week. The Advanced Manufacturing Mobile Lab is a self-contained training lab designed to deliver manufacturing curriculum to high school students & businesses. The climate controlled Mobile Lab is equipped with wireless technology and provides instruction in Industrial Maintenance and Programmable Logic Controls.
Students that are entering 9th grade next year can enroll in a one-week course being taught in the Advanced Manufacturing Mobile Lab at South High School this summer. The dates are June 23rd through June 27th. There is an AM class from 8:30-11:00 and a PM class from 12:30-3:00. There is no charge for the class but enrollment is VERY limited. To register, go to www.sheboygan.k12.wi.us/summerschool.
It was a joy to have the students see and experience absolute masterpieces of art - both visual art and musical art. The students marveled at the CSO concert, Lutoslawski's 'Musique Funebre', Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique" . I was beyond proud to hear the students' positive reactions to the concert, and they showed openness to a variety of musical styles. Chloe Mendez, a Farnsworth student, remarked, "Chicago was an amazing adventure to spend with my orchestra family! The Art Institute was filled with beautiful artwork. I'd definitely go back again!". Erika Escamilla, another Farnsworth student, stated, "the symphony we went to really pushed me to try my hardest because there are such great things you are able to ready in orchestra. The pieces we heard were from some of my favorite composers.
Door Decorations For Advisory
Advisory classes were asked to decorate their door for the month of April. They had to choose from one of the following themes: respect, appropriate use of technology, or tardiness. The positive message on the doors serve as a great reminder to help our students follow the PBIS matrix.
UW Marching Band In Madison
100 of Farnsworth's band students had the amazing opportunity on Friday, April 25th, to hear the UW Marching band live in concert at the Kohl Center in Madison. Amoung the many various pieces the UW band played were songs from the Beatles, Phantom of the Opera and of course the "Fifth Quarter" tunes. Students witnessed performances by guest artists Mark Pender and Yom Wopat. It was a very exciting experience for our students and they look forward to next year's trip to Madison.
