  • Victor Mravlag’s 4th annual Wax Museum was a hit

    Victor Mravlag’s 4th annual Wax Museum was a hit! The fourth grade researched individuals from the Revolutionary War era and embraced their character as parents and students alike stepped into the 1770’s and met some of the country’s most historic figures. General George Washington, Paul Revere, Benjamin Franklin, and King George are just a few of the many people present during the museum. For this PBL, student’s in all fourth grade classes (Mrs. Armento, Mrs. Dietz, Mrs. Luzardo, and Mr. Marsal) learned how to research, use PowerPoint, and speak in public to a group of their peers and adults. As you can see from the pictures, they had a blast!

  • Idiom Project

    Victor Mravlag students in Ms. Johnson’s 5th and 8th grade classes were learning about Figurative Language Devices and Techniques. Students analyzed IDIOMS via an interactive and creative project. They researched an IDIOM of their choice, discovered the history and origin of that idiom and then displayed them on a T-SHIRT or HAT. These students had the opportunity to interview other students and staff around the building to try to guess which idiom students selected and what those idioms meant. Students enjoyed themselves greatly!
