Lego Club
For the past two months, 11 fifth graders at Pleasantville Elementary have been using teamwork and positive attitudes to create some amazing things as part of the First Lego League Club! Students built a challenge board built out of Legos. They also built and programmed a robot to complete various missions on the challenge board. Another part of participating in the First Lego League was to research and design a solution to a problem that had to do with animals. Students developed a presentation based on their research. On Saturday, December 3rd, students went to Penn State Behrend to compete in a competition against 47 other teams. They were judged on three presentations of a project, core values, and robot design. The student’s also competed the robot in a tournament to complete missions and earn points. The team won a trophy based on their gracious professionalism. It was an amazing experience!  
Fifth Grade Mouse Traps 2016
As part of our fifth grade science curriculum, students in Mrs. Phenicie's class were given the task of creating a working mouse trap.  Students worked in small groups to set their plans in motion.  They had to incorporate the use of a "simple machine" in their project.  Students learned and created their own pulley system.  More pictures of the mouse traps can be found in the Pleasantville Photo page to the left of this article.
