Cole Spector (TRS Class 2011) Winner of App Challenge

Cole Spector (TRS Class of 2011) is a winner of the 2017 Congressional App Challenge with his App "Speech Timer". The Congressional App Challenge aims to engage students in coding and computer science. Over 4,100 students participated in the 14-week regional competitions. They submitted over 1,270 original student-created apps.

The Congressional App Challenge will invite winners from across the country to showcase their apps to the Members of Congress and members of the tech community at #HouseOfCode, a reception on Capitol Hill to be held in April 2018. Their work is eligible to be featured for one year on the permanent display in the U.S. Capitol Building and on the website. Each winning student will also be awarded $250 in Amazon Web Service credits, generously donated by Amazon Web Services.

Other great news for Cole is that he has been accepted at Duke University for next school year. Congratulations!!

Artist-in-residence Leads Students in Poetry Workshops

The Raleigh School welcomes back award-winning poet and author Michael Beadle as our Artist-in-Residence this week. Michael will work each day with 3rd-5th graders. For third grade, Michael is leading a five-day residency called Wonderworlds: Writing Poems about our Planet. Students have experimented with lines such as "Astronauts become creative dreamers/Extraordinary falcons fly gracefully/Heat is jumping like kangaroos on Mercury/Neptune's own moons/Pluto's questions are mysteries"

For our fourth and fifth graders, Michael is working with PhotoPoetry/Reading Images and Writing Poems. Using famous images from Time magazine or contemporary photos of cultures beyond our own, students have been learning the art of reading visuals to create powerful, original poems full of strong word choices and metaphorical language.

"Souper Bowl" Tradition Continues

Bowl making has become a fourth grade tradition. This integrated project melds academics, arts and community service. The bowls are created in art class and are sold in the classrooms while soup is served to the students and parents. The money raised is used to buy canned goods and other products for the Urban Ministries Food Shelter. The students purchase and deliver the goods, tour the facility and help to stock the pantry shelves.
