Painted Mural by 5th grade students
Ms. Bisagna's 6th grade math class created this mural to understand and apply ratios and proportions, while also promoting bike to work month and downtown Mount Vernon. They took a poster by a local artist and found a way to make the dimensions of the poster proportional to the building. They created 4 designs that worked, each with a different scale factor and height/length ratio (but all proportional to each other!) The business owner chose one that fit the building best, then the class made a full-scale model from a 1-inch grid to 21-inch square papers, measuring all the time to maintain the ratio and enlarge proportionally. Then the class trekked to Mount Vernon, transferred the patterns using a renaissance technique involving pencil holes and sharpie pens, and painted it on the building!

Auction Fund-A-Need video
Putting the "E" in E-STEM. Did you miss the auction? Then you missed this funny - yet informative - video short by 7th graders Zoey Plut and Anna Preston on the state of our technology here at Jane Addams. Students and staff are asking for better computer and science technology in the classrooms. We need iPads - we can't take the ones from this building to John Marshall next year! And we need high-tech science equipment - like LED microscopes - but also everyday items like Bunson burners. We want to make sure our students are learning at the highest level possible with the best equipment at their fingertips!
This year's Fund-A-Need raised $18,225. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED at the auction and also on the auction web site! We are well on our way to putting this much-needed technology into the hands of every Jane Addams student!
It's not too late to donate to our Fund-A-Need! Checks can be made payable to Jane Addams PTSA. Please put "FAN" in the check memo and drop off your donation in the PTSA lock box located in the office. All amounts are appreciated. Thank you so much!
