Chippewa Hosts Annual Mini Marathon

Chippewa Hosts Annual Mini Marathon

Sweat, smiles and friendly competition were on display at the recent Chippewa Mini Marathon, where students, staff and family members ran in the annual race in honor of two former Chippewa students, Grace Peshkur and Josh Mileto.

For 12 years, the daylong event rich in tradition has drawn enthusiastic crowds of family and friends as they cheered on each grade level as they ran their designated course. Wearing their mini-marathon shirts donated by the PTA, fourth and fifth grade students completed a full-mile course; the other grade levels ran a shorter distance. Additionally, parents, teachers and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham joined in on the day’s excitement as they completed the course. 

“Each year the enthusiasm has grown from the kids,” second grade teacher and event organizer Mary Bernhard said. “Students talk about setting goals, beating times and trying to do better than they did last year. What I have noticed over the years is the camaraderie that the students show for one another. Nobody crosses the finish line last or without cheers from the crowd supporting them to finish, whether it be walking, running or both.”

A group of high-achieving fourth and fifth grade math students at Chippewa Elementary School recently participated in a STEM challenge during an activity held for the Math Olympiads. 

During their recess period, a group of math super-students led by teacher Courtney Gordon challenged themselves with a STEM activity that required students to build the tallest tower possible using 12 plastic eggs and a small amount of Play-Doh. Working together, each student group developed a design for their tower and used problem-solving techniques to accomplish the task.

A collaborative project at Chippewa Elementary School recently combined literacy, math and art as first grade students in Donna Gianfortone’s class published their very own book, “A World of Math.”

Inspired by a love for math, students in Gianfortone’s class set out to publish a book that depicted where math is present in our everyday lives. Each student wrote a page for the book and created an illustration to accompany their writing, showcasing their artistic abilities. 

At the conclusion of the project, students attended a “red carpet event” where family and friends were invited to hear the first reading of their new literary masterpiece before celebrating their impressive accomplishment.
