We regularly check the air quality index levels by using the Real-time Air-quality Advisory Network (RAAN) monitoring system for information on how to modify outdoor physical activity. This guidance can help protect the health of all children, including teenagers, who are more sensitive than adults to air pollution. Air quality flags are displayed daily with the forecasted level. Due to the possibility that the air quality can change, you can go to the RAAN widget links below to check current conditions throughout the day:
Students in Mrs. Trapletti’s Math Pinterest class at Cherry Avenue Middle School in Tulare have created seven mosaic signs for the school quad reflecting the Pillars of Character.
The Math Pinterest class is new to Cherry. It is a class for students who want to be creative and use math when designing their projects. Participants have been able to apply math standards learned in their core class. Discovering the application of math skills to real world has been fun and eye opening. In creating the projects, the students learn to work together to design and make something they can be proud of.
The Pillars of Character mosaics involved the mathematical concepts of geometric shapes and names, area/perimeter of the sign, and word placement on the sign by finding the median of the pillar names. Mrs. Trapletti then challenged students by taking these different math principles and applying them to the hands-on project. They learned how to cut and break tile, glue the tile in place so the desired shape was evident, then grout and seal.
When the projects were completed and hung in the quad, the students exclaimed more than once of a feeling of pride and accomplishment for their project!
