The Mendell School participated in Boston STEM week October 22-26 by engaging students in STEM activities through our work with Legos and Coding. Through Extended Learning Time, ALL students in grades K1-5 participated in at least two STEM units of study across the school year. Students are building simple machines, engineering solutions to real world problems with their peers, designing robots that move and MORE!
We are thrilled to introduce our revised core values to the school community: Be Inclusive; Aspire to Excellence; Take Agency. We believe these values align with our vision and identity as a school community because they communicate inspiration, rather than simply expectation. We also believe that these values not only apply to our students, but ultimately challenge all of us to foster inclusivity as a pathway to excellence so that ALL learners are equipped with the skills necessary to take agency and be a “mighty small force for good in their neighborhoods.”

The Mendell school community raised $1,426.63 for our school-wide fundraiser, Pennies for Puerto Rico! All the money will be donated to UNICEF USA’s Hurricane Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico. Congratulations to 5th grade for raising $350, more money than any other class, and earning a pizza party! Students are also writing letters of support that will be sent to a school in Dorado, Puerto Rico. A big thank you to all the families, students, and staff who participated!
