On Tuesday, February 10th, students from Pyles School capped off a two-week fund raising effort for the American Heart Association at an afternoon cardio concert. Ms. Heidi Mejias, 3rd grade teacher, organized the Jump 4 Heart fundraiser in which the Pyles' community generously contributed $2000.00! The culminating heart healthy activity had students and staff jumping through 17 rotations to current hits blasting across the blacktop. Ms. Mejias has sponsored this event in the past and is so proud of the current year's record-breaking effort!

The 2nd Graders enjoyed a special visit by Officer Fletcher and Officer Stucken from the Newport Beach Police Department with K-9 Jardo. The students learned how Officer Stucken and K-9 Jardo train and work together to protect officers, find bad guys, and search for evidence. K-9 Jardo is amazing!
Using the “Believing the College Dream” curriculum (Center for Educational Partnership, UC Berkeley), Michelle Salinas, Lead AVID Teacher and fifth grade classroom teacher, facilitated “College Week” at Juliette Low from January 26 through January 30. Among the goals of this curriculum are to show students that college is within their grasp; help students believe in themselves and their ability to succeed in school; teach students how to identify people they can trust to support their journey in education; and give families and communities the tools, information, and college-bound attitude they need to support their children.
In preparation for this exciting week, each member of the Juliette staff depicted his/her educational journey, from elementary school through the university, on a poster. Most included photographs, anecdotes, and memorabilia. During College Week, teachers shared their educational journeys with their students and invited other staff members into their classrooms to share theirs. Perhaps the most powerful part of this for students was seeing that every person’s journey was unique, as there are many routes that lead to success. The posters were then displayed in the MPR for students, parents, and visitors to peruse.
On Thursday, January 29th, the Mattie Lou Maxwell Conservation Club harvested a full winter crop of kale, broccoli, cabbage, mustard greens, mint, red leaf lettuce and romaine lettuce from the school garden for the annual Maxwell Conservation Club cooking class. Students from the Conservation Club are in charge of planting, watering, and maintaining this year's crop. As a reward for their hard work, they were invited to the cooking class to enjoy the veggies they worked so hard to grow. About 40 students came to this year's cooking class. Mrs. Cornejo and Mr. Garwick and parent volunteers helped kids create fresh, healthy, and tasty recipes using the fresh veggies. The Conservation Club students really loved preparing their dish and enjoyed the taste of fresh veggies. Attached is the copy of our recipes for you to enjoy.
