Congratulations Asa Low UIL Team
On Saturday, February 15, many of our amazing Asa Low students participated against the 6 other MISD Intermediate Schools. We rocked the competition and took 2nd place overall! Way to go Asa Low Panthers!
Asa Low Fall Grants
Asa Low teachers earned over $16,500 in grant money from the MISD Education Foundation! We were very pround of them all! Here is a brief video of the awards presentation. Way to go Asa Low teachers!
Painting With Pizzazz
We had another successful Painting with Pizzazz Night at Asa Low! The first Painting with Pizzazz Family Night Activity was a hit and so was the second night! Both nights were full of food, music, crafting and painting. We are excited to announce we will have multiple opportunities to hold Painting with Pizzazz Art Nights throughout the year. Each Painting with Pizzazz night will be theme based according to the season and holiday. Look for upcoming anouncements for the next date! Thank you to Ms. Nasypany for organizing this for Asa Low!
Saturday Science Camp
Last Saturday, October 5, Asa Low Intermediate School hosted our first Science Saturday Camp for the year. Our amazing Science Teachers and crew reviewed information from the first six weeks focusing on the following TEKS/SEs:
(5) Matter and energy. The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used. The student is expected to:
(A) classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy;
(B) identify the boiling and freezing/melting points of water on the Celsius scale;
(C) demonstrate that some mixtures maintain physical properties of their ingredients such as iron filings and sand; and
(D) identify changes that can occur in the physical properties of the ingredients of solutions such as dissolving salt in water or adding lemon juice to water.
Mrs. Miller conducted a lab activity on magnetism, while Mrs. Newsom challenged students with a lab on mixtures and solutions. Mrs. Padilla helped students create lava lamps while Mr. Hippman had students examine density in a lab called 'Density Dunking.' Ms. Bell and Mrs. Cannaday joined in by having the students create power points to review all the physical properties of matter.
We had 87 students attend on Saturday. We hope that these hands on activities and the interactive journals they created will help students to reinforce what they learned this six weeks in 5th grade Science.
Thank you to all who participated!
Field Day 2013 was a huge success! 5th graders got a little wet, but they didn't mind! We all had a blast! Thank you to the PE Department for another fabulous day! Enjoy the 5th and 6th grade (part 1 and part 2) videos highlighting the days.
Asa Low Blanket/Ornament Donation
The students in Mrs. Campos' 6th grade classes donated money. With this money they were able to purchase supplies to make tie blankets and purchase various types of ornamnets. The PowerPoint explains what they did with all of the supplies and donations. Thank you Mrs. Campos and students for your community involvement.
Arlington Life Shelter and Mansfield Methodist sent Mrs. Campos and her students thank you notes because they were so grateful for the blanket donations.
Our Three Words
As an Asa Low family, we decided to create some videos using only 3 words. We explained to the students that you can say a lot with only 3 words. The kids came up with their own three words and then Shannon Clements, our Reading Specialist, came around and took pictures and then created 3 videos with our pictures. Thank you Ms. Clements for putting this together. Enjoy!
