National Made by Milk 2017 Carton Construction Contest Quidditch Stadium Created from Milk Cartons By 7th Grade Students

7th Grade Visual Art Students are participating in the National Made by Milk 2017 Carton Construction Contest.  This year’s theme was sports.  Instead of doing traditional sports, the group decided to create a Quidditch stadium inspired by the books and movies of Harry Potter.  Quidditch is a magical sport in which the players fly on broomsticks and throw the ball through the hoops while the Seeker is in search of the Golden Snitch.  Once the Snitch is caught, the game is over.  It was interesting to learn that several colleges and universities have picked up this fictional game and created version for their students to play.  Berea College Student Crafts department has also started making Quidditch style brooms that are sold to several of these schools.

The students had to create the sculpture out of milk cartons and were only allowed 20% another material.  Foley’s cafeteria staff saved the cartons and washed them for the project.  Cartons had to be cut and made into sheets.

Walk With The Arts Warriors Lead at The Walk With The Arts

Friday, September 29th was the 10th Berea Arts Council Walk with the Arts, an educational event that all fourth grade students from Madison County Schools, Berea Community, and Model participate in.  For the past 6 years, Foley Middle School has had the opportunity to volunteer and run the weaving booths.  Our student volunteers were in charge of 4 booths this year, 2 for the standing looms and 2 for Berea Rocks.  It is a great leadership opportunity and a wonderful experience to observe professional artists and artisans at work.

Spring Assessment Data Released

Spring assessment data is being released this week by the Kentucky Department of Education. This year’s assessment data is being reported differently, as the state is transitioning away from the Unbridled Learning Accountability Model and moving to the new accountability system – the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Kentucky Senate Bill 1. This year, schools did not receive an overall score, classification, or ranking. While our schools will not be classified as novice, apprentice, proficient, and distinguished, we have received impressive results in our gap, growth, college- and career-readiness, and graduation rate data. The new accountability system is expected to be in place for the 2018-2019 school year with accountability first reported in the 2019-2020 school year.
