7th Grade Activity
For math class the first week of school we did an activity called the Marshmallow Challenge.  In this activity the students were faced with the task of making a free standing structure out of 20 spaghetti noodles, 1 yard of tape, 1 yard of string, and a marshmallow in just 15 minutes.  The object was to make the tallest free standing structure but the catch is that the structure must hold the marshmallow on the very top. This activity tied wonderfully to our math because it was a chance for me to point out some essential skills that we will be strengthening this year.  This activity taught the students that it is okay to fail because then we know something that didn't work and we can try something new next time. All too often students get stuck into one way of thinking and I want students to know that there are more than one way to get to a solution. This activity also taught the students to work together with a group.  The students had to compromise and communicate in order to get the task done on time.  All classes had different ways of approaching the problem and I was very proud to see how they worked together.

In the Spotlight

HS Students in the News
The National Hispanic Institute would like to acknowledge and commend all of the participants of the 2014 Midwest Great Debate, including three students from Storm Lake High School. Efrain Gonzalez, Juan Espino and Jennifer Luengas attended the NHI Great Debate at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois this summer. They joined students representing six states on a six day intensive experience in the area of communications and debate. They engaged in competition, idea formation and communication enhancement under the guidance of seven of NHI's most notable undergraduate alumni from some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the Midwest. Over the last 35 years. the National Hispanic Institute has had the privilege of working with top studens who attend each of our fourteen program sites throughout the US and Latin America.

Homecoming in the 6th Grade

Believe it or not, homecoming is quite a big deal in the Middle School as well as the High School.  The kids look forward to dressing up and participating in the pep rally and obviously going to the big game.  But I have to say, they definitely were most excited about the annual door decorating contest!  I was totally impressed with the talent the 6th grade students showed on the door decorating contest this year. Their creativity and art skills shined through on their awesome finished products.  With all the renovations being done at the high school this year, the theme for the door was “Under Construction”. The team- work and positive attitudes shown by the students and teachers allowed the 6th grade hallway to look awesome by the time the high school judges came by early Friday morning.  Nice job 6th grade and congratulations to Mrs. Wilson’s homeroom for winning 1st place in the 6th grade hallway!
