5th Grade Math Escape Room Day

The Salmon are Hatching!

Ewing Young Outdoor Experience Day 2

The classes at our outdoor site were rich in learning and creativity today! Today’s menu was water testing, hydrology, macro invertebrates, and linoleum block printing. Through all the water studies our students engaged in, we learned a lot in regard to our question,  “is Chehalem Creek  a suitable release site for chinook salmon eggs, and would it support spawning chinook salmon.”

A huge thanks to Joel and Roxy Thomas for their amazing work in organizing such a great experience. Our instructors Clair, Dave, Froggy, and Pete were amazing, as well as the several Newberg High School Volunteers! Lastly, thank you parent chaperones for your help with classes and with our students in making smooth transitions throughout each day.

Ewing Young Outdoor Experience Day 1

Aside from a few rain squalls, the weather cooperated for the most part. Our students engaged in some great learning about salmon anatomy, salmon survival, rotten log food webs, and riparian zones. Four new great learning stations tomorrow!

Big Boo Carnival

Plan to bring your family to school in costume this Saturday, October 28th, from 4-7 pm for carnival games, fun and loads of prizes!

All proceeds from this event will go toward sending 4th and 5th graders to outdoor school.

Bring a spouse, grandparent, friend or older student to enjoy the fun and even run a game for an hour! There are more teachers planning to come and help than parents, so let’s change that equation!

Call or email Sheri and let her know you can help us make this happen!

Salmon Time!

It’s an even-numbered year, which means we raise salmon this time around. A big shout out goes to Mr. Segundo for helping get our incubators and chillers out of storage for us and fetching 90 gallons of water from the well. We picked up our salmon eggs yesterday from the ODFW office in Clackamas, and they are resting comfortably in each of our three classroom incubators.

Diving Deep in Science and Engineering Practices

In the month of September and part of October, our students engaged in activities and projects that focused on the practices of Planning and Carrying out Investigations, Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions, and Interpreting and Analyzing Data. Vernier temperature probes were used in investigations and projects such as exploring temperature in a chemical reaction, constructing and testing solar ovens, and designing and testing an insulated cup.

Congratulations to Miguel, named EY Kiwanis’ Great Kid!

Congratulations to Miguel!

Miguel was honored today as the EY Kiwanis’ Great Kid! Miguel earned this honor for several reasons. First, he works extremely hard every day. Second, his behavior is a terrific example to his classmates of “The Pioneer Way.”

24 Math Tournament

Our EY 24 Math Competition Team was small but mighty! This year 3rd graders were invited to participate. Their rounds were for fun rather than competition. Vincent was our lone 3rd grade representative but he is now recruiting friends for next year! Representing 4th grade were Jack, Michael, and Vada, while our 5th graders were Norris, Tanner, Trevor, and Ty. All 7 of our 4th and 5th graders qualified for the quarterfinal rounds for their respective grade levels and ultimately Trevor captured 3rd place and Ty was the champion. Congratulations to all 8 of our “mathletes” and thank you for representing Ewing Young with solid math skills and great sportsmanship!

Once again, our 5th grade students represented EY well with excellent behavior, sportsmanship, and teamwork at the Newberg 5th Grade Track Meet. Our students also gave their best effort on the field and the track, and there were many ribbons earned. Great job, 5th graders. Click on the link below to view several photos of the event!
