Grade 8 Project Lead the Way Students Learn About Wind Turbines
Grade 8 students had the opportunity to learn about wind turbines from Mr. Christopher King. Mr. King has worked in the wind industry for the past six years and gave students an overview of how wind turbines are constructed, work and are maintained. He shared pictures from his first hand accounts and got students thinking about all of the different jobs that exist in that industry.
Morton Students Participate in Earth Day Parade
Despite the chilly weather, 30 Morton students represented their school at this year's Earth Day Parade in New Bedford. The focus of Morton students this year was on the preservation of the Quequechan and Taunton Rivers. Grade 6 students worked in their science classes to research and identify different threats to the health of these local rivers and created slogans to promote the thoughtful preservation of the two areas. The art classes illustrated these slogans in the form of a placard that was held by students walking in the parade. The placard, along with the "moving river" used in the parade, will be on display at the April 29 Gallery Night and Fashion show being held at the school.
