Northwest Students Participate in Dream Act Rally

Comunidades Unidas, an organization dedicated to empowering the Latino Community in Utah, invited the Latinos in Action students along with the students in Current Events to participate in the Dream Act rally. The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act applies to children of undocumented parents who entered the country before age 16. The Act is a way to help these students gain legal status through school or military service. Together, students decorated 300 butterflies to contribute to the 11,000 total butterflies representing the number of current Utah Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients who are in danger of losing their status now that DACA is ending in March. Many of the students attended the Dream Act rally on November 21 in support of the Dream Act. Northwest Middle School students gathered with other activists to encourage senators Orrin Hatch and Bob Bennett to approve the legislation that was introduced in 2001.

7th Grade Science Students Display Knowledge about Organelles

Ms. Duffy’s and Ms. Maurro’s 7th grade science students created posters after learning about organelles.  Organelles are small, specialized structures inside cells, which operate like organs by carrying out specific tasks. Working in small groups, students were required to display their learning by drawing oversized organelles and labeling the parts including the nucleus, mitochondria, chloroplast, and cell wall. Students then presented the posters to the class.

Seventh Grade Student Scientists Conduct Carbon Dioxide Cell Experiment

Seventh grade student scientists in Ms. Mauro’s classes conducted experiments to understand how our cells create energy. Students mixed yeast with either salt, sugar, or flour, and then capped their test tubes with balloons. They observed which balloons filled with carbon dioxide – the gas that our cells produce – and which did not. This experiment was part of a larger unit on cells and energy that student scientists have been working on for the past few weeks.

Northwest Students Recognized as Terrific Kids

The Salt Lake Kiwanis Club has partnered with the middle schools in the Salt Lake District to sponsor the Terrific Kid Program.  This program is a student recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance. The acronym for “Terrific” Kid is Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive, and Capable.  For the month of October, students  Yar Yar Cam, David Peck, Lutuiki Nau, and Alejandro Hernandez were honored. For the month of November, students Evelyn Ortiz, Serafina Ah See, Siri Ndabajunjiye, and Jake Davis are being honored. To see pictures of these students along with why they are being honored, please see the Student Recognition page. 

Eighth Grade Math Classes Participate in Friendly Competition

Teachers Jag Dasanjh, Lauren Haupt, Soo Francis, and Becky de Freitas took their classes to the auditorium for a friendly math competition.  Students have been learning a variety of difficult mathematical equations and concepts.  The competition allowed students to review what they have been learning while competing against their peers. Teachers would randomly select a student’s name who then had to answer the math problem.  If the student answered correctly, the class received a point. The game became quite competitive as classes developed strategies to win. Students had a lot of fun as did their instructors!
