Pennies (Lots of Them!) for Peace

Mahoney students and staff gave over $1000 to help a school in Afghanistan. This money will fund one full-time teacher for an entire year, with more than $400 extra to help in other ways.

The Student Council coordinated the entire project and proudly presented Mrs. Germani with their check the day before Christmas vacation.

Book Launch and Reading Buddies

Mr. Harmon's mystery writers read from their work and Mrs. Doughty's LA class got together with their "buddies" from Mrs. Reinhold's class at Brown school.

Three Cups of Tea Day

I got to visit all the classes on our first Three Cups of Tea Day. I saw lots of interesting things going on: kids getting dressed in high tech gear for mountain climbing; bulbs being planted in the front flower gardens; lots of kids exploring Pakistan on Google Earth; students breathing through straws after hiking outside; groups drinking hot tea; games of cricket in the gym; videos and reading all over the school. It all looked great to me. What did you think?

Extension Cords?

Any student taking his or her laptop home with permission can stop by the computer lab and pick up a power adapter extension cord. This will add 6 feet of cord and allow you to plug in to an outlet more easily.

It's a Whole New Year!

Summer's over - Don't we all wish it could last forever? But we're moving on, and there's a new Buzz here at Mahoney. It's all about the new MacBook laptops that all the 7th and 8th graders and teachers have, and that the 6th grade will be using on laptop carts soon. Check in with your part of the buzz by clicking on Comments and telling what you think of the new year with new laptops.
