School Campus Begins Robotics Program December 13, 2017
At Lancaster Mennonite School's Hershey Campus, 1525 Sand Hill Road, Hummelstown, teacher Sue Eckert is constantly looking for ways to inspire her students. At the end of every school year, she surveys them to get ideas that will increase their joy of learning. Coding, or writing a computer program, was among the top picks of her Elementary Tech Lab students, and the idea of robotics arose naturally from the coding activities.
To encourage personal ownership of a robotics project, Eckert asked the students in grades three through five to create slideshows about an educational robot of their choice. In this way, students presented their findings to each other and collaboratively analyzed 16 options.
A robotics kit includes a physical robot, related accessories, and the instruction guide. The robots have some built-in functions such as light and touch sensors, can respond to stimuli like hand clapping or speech, and produce sounds themselves. Their educational value is the way that students are able to use apps to communicate with and program the robots.
Eckert plans to begin with Dash and Dot kits and Edison V2.0 kits. A Dash and Dot kit with two Dash robots and two Dot robots costs between $700 and $870. An Edison V2.0 robot kit with 10 Edison robots costs approximately $370.
To raise funds for the robotics kits, LMS Hershey families, friends, and interested community partners are collecting empty aluminum cans and scrap for recycling. The first load of 118 pounds was delivered at the end of November. The school is also accepting monetary donations to buy the kits.
While the younger Hershey students are awaiting their kits, a Robotics Club was formed for high school students looking to pursue engineering and mechanical studies. The Robotics Club meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays to build robots. The club is currently programming a Parallax Boe Bot from professor Aldo Morales of Penn State Harrisburg because they plan to compete in upcoming robotics competitions at Penn State. They are looking for financial support to purchase a second robot kit. The Robotics Club consists of Emma Sellers, Cara Higgins, Michael Rosenfeld, Alex Beck, and Jiacheng (Jimmy) He.
School Receives Grant December 13, 2017
La Academia: The Partnership Student Charter School recently received a $1,000 grant from the Matthews Children's Foundation and Groff Funeral and Cremation Services in Lancaster. The foundation was established in 1992 to disburse funds to nonprofit organizations that work for the benefit of children across the U.S. The foundation partners with funeral and cemetery businesses to support all aspects of child welfare.
The $1,000 grant will be used to purchase three computers intended to help engage students with interactive lessons and prepare them for an increasingly digital workforce.
Also, La Academia science teacher Amy Kline recently received a $100 gift card from A.C. Moore and the Kids In Need Foundation. The charity provides free school supplies to teachers and students and grants to teachers. Kline plans to use the gift card to pay for supplies for her eighth-grade science class' lighthouse project, which will result in working, decorated lighthouses controlled by electrical switches.
Students Perform STEM Projects December 11, 2017
Students at St. Joan of Arc School in Hershey recently participated in STEM projects.
Students were in small groups of two or three and took on the roles of computer programmer, engineer, or project manager. They chose one of 12 building projects available in the Lego WeDo kits. The kits included a motor, motion sensor and/or tilt sensor. Once the students decided what to build, they created a story graphic in the Scratch program. Scratch is a scaled down computer programming environment created by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab.
Students put their engineering and computer programming skills to the test as they built, programmed, worked through bugs that prevented their project from doing as they hoped, and got their project working.
Students Take Part In "Hour Of Code" December 11, 2017
St. Anne School participated in this year's "Hour of Code" Week in celebration of Computer Science Education Week on Dec. 4 through 8. The Hour of Code Week began as a one-hour introduction to computer science designed to demystify code, show that anybody can learn the basics, and broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has turned into a global learning event offering hundreds of one-hour activities in more than 48 languages for students in kindergarten and up.
Activities required no experience and could be run on browsers, tablets, and smartphones. Some did not require any computer at all.
At St. Anne School, the Hour of Code took place every day as each grade attended its weekly computer class. Based on their skill levels, the classes coded using the Code Academy, Scratch, and Lightbot coding programs. Each child worked at his or her own level.
Every class also had the opportunity to code with the school's Ozobots. An Ozobot is one of the world's smallest programmable robots, measuring just over one inch in height and diameter. Students are able to use color-based coding to program what they would like their Ozobot to do. Either with a marker and paper or with their electronic tablet, students draw lines (tracks) using different colors. Each color is a "code" for the Ozobot to follow. Students will begin programming with simple codes (move forward, turn, spin) and continue learning to code during their classes through January. The end goal is for each student to create their own page of code and then connect the entire school's coded pages together, creating one large trail that all of the Ozobots can travel on at one time. St. Anne School purchased 18 Ozobots at the beginning of the school year to be used in their STEM classes.
Code.org is dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Code.org organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign, which has engaged 10 percent of all students in the world.
Vista School Receives Donation December 6, 2017
The Vista School in Hershey recently received a $45,000 grant to improve the lives of students with autism. The grant comes from the Vintage Car Rally Association Inc. (VCRA), based in Grove, Okla.
VCRA, a nonprofit organization, provides a unique forum for antique, vintage, classic, and sports car enthusiasts to compete in controlled speed, timed, distance rally competition that would test the skills and endurance of both the individuals and the machine. The organization donates all proceeds to autism organizations, schools, and chapters in need.
Now celebrating its 15th anniversary, The Vista School has become one of the premier schools for students with autism in the country. Approximately 100 students from 34 school districts in eight counties attend the school. Another 130 students with autism receive support in their home schools through Vista Outreach Services. Vista prepares students with autism to lead meaningful and productive lives.
Half of the VCRA grant will be used to purchase a slightly used van to transport students into the community for training and paid employment. The other half of the VCRA gift will be used to purchase soundproof room dividers to create quiet spaces within classrooms and reduce noise.
Students Inducted Into NHS December 6, 2017

Sacred Heart School Unveils Bottlecap Mural December 6, 2017
Sacred Heart Catholic School in Oxford recently held an unveiling and dedication ceremony to celebrate the completion of a student mural made of bottle caps. Students from prekindergarten through eighth grade worked for more than two years to create the mural, which depicts the Biblical account of the creation of the Earth.
At the dedication ceremony, seventh-grade students Jossy Henderson and Dominick Kendrick took turns reading the story of the creation of the earth from the book of Genesis. As they described each day of creation, the portion of the mural that pertained to that passage was unveiled until the entire mural was visible.
Almost all of the large mural is made from plastic bottle caps of various sizes and colors that students and parents collected for the project. They are screwed to the wooden backing.
"Prekindergarten (students) sorted them into boxes, separating them by colors. The kids helped to paint the mural, and they've been using a power drill to screw the caps on one by one," said art teacher Joann Saltysiak. "We used about 3,500 screws (and) about 5,000 bottle caps."
The idea for the project began when Saltysiak was looking at art on the internet and noticed a bottle cap mural done by a group as a recycling project. She saw the concept as a good starting point for a student project, and she took the idea to principal Steven Brunner for his approval.
The mural design was generated from ideas provided by the students, incorporating their ideas ranging from the night sky with moon and stars to the warm sun, ocean, and landscape with animals and flowers.
"Every single kid in the school put an idea on it. (The ideas) just kept on piling up," said eighth-grader Danny Lee.
Bottle caps were used for all but a few areas where more detail was required, such as God's hands at the top center of the mural and a carefully painted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Students on hand for the ceremony seemed to agree that their favorite part of working on the project was using the power drill to install the bottle caps singly and in some places in multiple layers.
"It was very fun and very creative," eighth-grade student Ricardo Escobar said.
Although it was a big and exciting project, the mural did not take much time away from art classes. The school's art classes continued as usual, with any spare time going to the mural project.
Originally, the mural was to be installed in a hallway just outside the school gymnasium, but it has turned out so well that the parish's new pastor, the Rev. Michael Hennelly, would like to find a much more visible spot for it, so that it can be enjoyed by more people.
"It does deserve an honorable place. When you come up close, it's just amazing," Hennelly said. "This is an expression of everything we do in our private Catholic elementary schools. It's all about our education of the whole child, the beauty in arts and challenging young minds."
Sacred Heart School is located at 205 Church Road, Oxford. It serves the students of the Oxford, Avon Grove, Octorara and Solanco school districts. More information on the school is available at www.shsoxford.us.

Foundation Presents Annual Awards November 22, 2017
The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) recently awarded $750 toward tuition to each of three students. CEF founder Gerald Ganse and donor Dr. Albert Schreder visited the school on Nov. 9 to meet this year's recipients. CEF is a three-year-old independent group that raises money for tuition for students to attend local Catholic schools.
Schreder, 90, was born and raised on Cabbage Hill in Lancaster. He and Ganse grew up together and attended St. Joseph School and Lancaster Catholic High School (LCHS). At that time, families did not pay tuition.
When Schreder was a senior, the Rev. Anthony Kane, LCHS principal in 1945, told the basketball star he should go to college. Kane helped Schreder get into the University of Notre Dame, where he majored in physical education.
When Schreder was drafted, he went to Fort McClellan, Ala., to train as a sharpshooter and machine gunner. From there, the Army shipped him to Sendai on the Japanese island of Honshu.
After his military service, Schreder returned to Notre Dame and then went on to the Temple University School of Dentistry. He decided to partner with his brother in a dental practice on West King Street in Lancaster, and his children attended St. Joseph School. His wife had also attended the school. In 1993, Schreder retired, and the business moved to Good Drive. It is now managed by his nephew and his nephew's wife.
For more information about CEF, readers may contact Ganse at 717-577-2735.
