You may have seen the many smart TVs in our school hallways, they display 'whats happening' around the school with our students and what they are learning and doing in class. Here are the slideshows for your convenience:

The first 2023-24 meeting of the PORTER FLL LEGO CLUB was a success!  We started the meeting off with introductions and a team building game; then were treated to various centers:

• Jelly Sandwich Coding (of course)
• Level setting behavioral expectations around what it means to be a team player and operating as a "Gracious Professional."
• Getting up close with the missions for the game so that they can think about the things that they can possibly do to solve them. 
• Identifying key parts in their team box (motors, caster ball, colored sensors, speakers).


They had so much learning and fun in their kick off meeting; whoever thought that making jelly sandwiches can teach sooo much about coding?  Turns out, it was the kids favorite and tastiest 😀.  Our volunteers plated sandwiches at the end of the club, AFTER hands were washed/sanitized.

Porter 4th grader, Carter Hall, had the opportunity to attend the National Urban League Premier Screening of the documentary, The Gumbo Coalition, hosted by Warner Bros. Discovery at the Motion Picture Association in Washington, DC.

The documentary follows two visionary Civil Rights leaders, Marc Morial, current President of the National Urban League and past Mayor or New Orleans, LA and Janet Murguía, President of UnidosUS, formerly National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic advocacy organization.  This documentary focused on the work to empower Black American and Latino American communities through these turbulent years in America.  As the only K-12 student in attendance, Carter had the opportunity meet and chat with both President Morial and President Murguia about his experiences in school.  What a great opportunity!!

The EcoHero Show…Porter 3rd graders took a field trip to the Hylton Performing Arts Center and had a great time! The show provided students and teachers a unique engaging educational experience while learning how to take care of the planet. It was an interactive concert where the audience was introduced to environmental topics, stories, and engaged the students with trivia. All throughout the show, students learned songs and followed dances to music videos by rap superhero, Mr. Eco.  And…the teachers were called up to interact too!!! The show was educational, empowering, engaging, and most of all fun!
