MC2 STEM High School Student and Parent Weekly Notes: 10/16/2017

October 24, 2017

MC2 STEM High School

Student and Parent Weekly Notes: 10/16/2017

 

OUR MISSION:  INNOVATING EDUCATION TO ENGAGE & ENRICH STUDENTS

 

 

“Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds.”

George Eliot

 

MC2 STEM High School Communication

Make a Comeback!

School starts bright and early tomorrow, but returning to school after an extended break can leave you filled with dread and anxiety. You're only going back to school - why is it so hard? If this question is something you've asked yourself, or if you could use some advice getting back into study mode, these skills will soon beat back your post-holiday blues and make school a breeze.

Set goals for yourself

  1. Review your homework. Or, if you didn't have homework assigned over break, take some time to look over the last assignments you did in each class before leaving school.

  2. Connect with a teacher you like or respect.

  3. List things you can look forward to

  4. Take your time getting back into the rhythm of things.

 

Starting Your First Day Back Right

  1. Readjust your sleep schedule, if necessary.

  2. Pre-pack your bookbag and choose your clothes.

  3. Get a full night's rest the night before school resumes.

  4. Start your day earlier than normal.

  5. Eat a healthy breakfast

  6. Exercise moderately if you have time.

 

Maintaining a Good Routine

  1. Make a family schedule.

  2. Ingrain your routine through consistency.

  3. Talk with your parents.

  4. Adjust to the unexpected. Even the best routines aren't safe from the randomness of life.

 

 

Kickoff Quarter 2 With Great, New Capstones!

Utopia & Dystopia  Grade 9 Quarter 2

Students will explore dystopian and utopian societies based on literature and explore the ways in which social dynamics, technological advances, and internet presence has the potential to shift our society toward one of those realities.

 

Freedom vs. Chaos Grade 10 Quarter 2 Capstone

Students will explore the effects of Freedom vs. Chaos on the growth and development of human beings, organisms, and societies in order to form connections between subject-specific and cross-curricular standards.

 

Heroes of the Period Grade 11 Quarter 2 Capstones

Students will explore the crossover between classes through three mini-capstones. In an English & Chemistry Combined Mini Capstone, students will take a deep dive in to the period table while studying anthropomorphization. symbolism, characterization, technical and creative writing of a heroes journey, and editing. In Government and English Class Combined Mini Capstone, students will gain understanding of the US Constitution and the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments, slavery, citizenship, right-to-vote and women’s suffrage, as well as, writing conventions, presentation skills, reading for information and research, and high level comprehension. In this Computer Science and Pre-Calculus Combined Mini Capstone, students will find out “who” is more heroic, the athlete who trains for a lifetime or the academic who can define a precise athletic outcome using mathematics, graphing, coding, AI technology, robotics, and mechanics.

 

Master Your Own Path: Career and College Readiness STEM Portfolio Grade 12 Quarter 2 Capstone

In the 12th grade, the Career and College Readiness STEM Portfolio is an opportunity for students to explore and master their own path for the remainder of their high school and post-graduation plans. Through the portfolio students will demonstrate that they are college/work ready, with plans for their transition into life after high school.
