We Made the News!
Ms. Alstot's students made the newspaper today! Yesterday, students from her Environmental Science class competed with middle schoolers from 16 other Ventura County schools at the 15th annual Engineering Challenge at the Naval Base in Port Hueneme.  The Challenge, which was sponsored by Naval Surface Warfare Center, involved teams of students creating a launcher that could accurately hit a target.  The competition provided students with a fun and engaging opportunity to learn engineering and problem-solving skills, along with science concepts such as gravity and aerodynamics.

Extreme Science
Many of our seventh grade students attended an exciting field trip to the California Academy of Science.  Students explored exhibits about ecosystems, space, alternative energy and much more!  Haydock students also got to see an 3D IMAX movie about the Galapagos Islands.  Today was the first of three field trips to the Science Center this month with the seventh grade science classes.

Field Trip to the Ensemble Theatre at the New Vic in Santa Barbara
About 180 of  our 8th grade Haydock students recently went on a  field trip to Santa Barbara to watch a play at the New Vic Theatre.  The play, titled "Intimate Apparel" addressed issues regarding race and religion, and it supported the Common Core Standards.
Students anxiously await the performance

Ms. Gonzales, Ms. McVicker and Ms. Hagerman worked together to turn this field trip from dream to reality.

The tickets for all of our 8th graders were paid for by the Ensemble Theatre.  Students thanked their sponsors with a giant thank you card.

Field Trip to CSU Northridge
Students from Ms. Ford's Spanish class recently attended a field trip to CSU Northridge to watch a performance by the Whyman Project.  The performance included music, dancing, and acrobatic performances.  Students also took a tour around campus to learn more about the University.

STEM in Art
Ms. Dempsey's art classes have combined STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and art to create beautiful art work that is now on display in our front office.  Stop by and check it out!
The cityscapes have QR codes that connect via smartphone or iPad to videos of students discussing their art work.
