Posted on 03/13/2019
February & March have been busy around Sandburg MS.  Take a look at what's been happening!

SEA Fieldtrip
7th grade Life Science students in Ms. PGM's classes collaborated with first graders at the School of Engineering and Arts in late February.

7th graders led first graders to harvest animal and plant cells, (human cheek and epithelial cells of an onion) create wet mount slides and observe/analyze their specimen under microscopes.

Kindness Post-Its
This month Sandburg Middle School participated in the annual Middle School Kindness Challenge! Students wrote kind notes to others, these were delivered in advisory, advisory classes completed kindness lessons, and kindness trees were decorated with kindness leaves! On Wednesday after advisory, students were surprised when they found encouraging post its on their lockers!

This year's Kindness Challenge Captain coordinated with three leadership groups in the building to organize a weekly initiative. The following groups lead initiatives in the Kindness Challenge, Where Everybody Belongs (WEB), Student Council/National Junior Honor Society and Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA).

Raising Money For Well in Africa
6th graders have been working really hard to raise money to build a well for T. Marshall School in Ganta City, Liberia. If you would like to donate money for our well project, we would appreciate your support. We currently have $800 of our $3,500 goal.

Students also have the opportunity to help by purchasing donuts this week, Friday, March 15th from 7:40-7:55.  Each donut will cost $2 with choices of glazed or chocolate frosting. All proceeds will support the well project in Liberia.
