October is WORLD FOOD MONTH. Seventh graders are selling paper plates to decorate during their lunch period for $1.00. We would love your support! Students can visit the table during lunch and decorate a plate for $1. The sale will continue for the month of October Please support us to take a stand against hunger.

Seneca Students Make Marble Mazes

Students in Michael Lundstrom’s technology class at Seneca Middle School used innovative thinking as they faced design challenges in creating marble mazes, racing the clock to reach a designated goal time of eight seconds. 

Seventh-grade students in Mr. Lundstrom’s technology class focused on the engineering design process as they embarked on the challenges of navigating a marble through a maze, meeting the time constraints allowed. Supplied with cardboard from cereal boxes, students assembled the mazes, weaving the marble throughout their creations to reach its destination. The only factor aiding the marble in its descent was gravity. 

During the project, the students learned a number of lessons beyond the engineering skill acquired. These included the concept of design ethics and the importance of attributing credit for components found in others’ designs while conducting research. Additionally, self-refection was emphasized during the testing phase, which required students to recognize design failures and the need to create functional solutions that successfully completed their goals.

Literacy came alive for sixth-grade students from Sagamore and Seneca middle schools when they enjoyed an inspiring day with author and illustrator George O’Connor.

During two separate assembly programs, Mr. O’Connor spoke of his experiences as a student and what sparked his interest to pursue the career he excels at today. He also walked the students through his Greek mythology-based book series, “Olympians,” providing students with valuable illustrating tips and techniques. Concluding his presentations, Mr. O’Connor showcased his quick drawing style during an impressive 25-second drawing demonstration of Greek god Zeus.  

As an added treat, those students who participated in the Sachem Public Library Summer Reading Program had the chance to eat breakfast (Seneca) or lunch (Sagamore) with O’Connor and engage in a small-group question-and-answer session.
