6th Grade Library and Research Skills
All 6th grade students have chosen a book to read and share by presenting a Book Talk. The talk is a brief summary of the story which develops public speaking skills and gives classmates an opportunity to learn about numerous books they may decide to read! We’re also researching questions and topics
from their science curriculum to learn how to use commercial databases such as Science in Context, (Gale), and credible websites. Students will also learn how to cite these sources.
7th Grade Library and Research Skills
We began the year by sharing book summaries of books read over the summer. Most recently we explored and researched information on the concept of Growth Mindset. A person who develops a growth mindset perceives his learning on a continuum and believes that with practice and hard work he can become better at any given skill. It is the opposite of Fixed Mindset, which is when someone stops learning a skill because it is difficult and he tells himself that he will never be able to improve. Students used commercial database that contain magazines, newspapers, reference sources, etc. to find information
and print their findings. We spent significant time understanding how to decipher the bibliographic citation of the articles they printed.
Maynard Music Association
It is a pleasure to announce that Maynard Music Association's 7th Annual Casino Game Night was a success again. We were able to raise over $10,000 to support the music programs of Fowler School and Maynard High School.
The funds raised will support the MMA’s commitment to enrichment programs, recognition for music students, and scholarship programs for graduating senior students in band or chorus. The fundraiser also assists with the purchase and repair of instruments for both Maynard High School and Fowler School students, and assists with choral and band needs for attending area competitions and competitions located in DC and Disney.
We applaud the ongoing commitment of our band and chorus families, our talented music students, our parent and alumni parent volunteers, the music
faculty and administration of Maynard Public Schools, and our local businesses. It is through their volunteerism, financial support and donations that
support music education for our children, that we succeed. Special thanks to the Casino Night '15 team for their time, gifts and talents that were brought to each planning meeting and to the WAVM team for supporting our sound needs for the evening!
The next MMA Fowler meeting will be held on Wednesday December 2nd from 7- 7:45 in room B132 at the High School. Joint business between Fowler
and the High School will start at 7:45. All are welcome to attend.
