Kevin Luu

Hello, Stacey students! This is a new series called Memely or Meme of the Week. The first part of this series is dabbing. How did dabbing start? The dab has its origins in the Atlanta hip-hop scene in the 2010s, but there was initial disagreement about who originated the dance.

The dab gained popularity in American sports following an eight-second celebratory dab by Cam Newton, football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League, during a game against the Tennessee Titans on November 15, 2015. Afterward, lots of people started to dab live on TV and it went viral. More…

When you think of these types of complicated games, you may think of them being in an arcade or at a supermarket like “Albertsons.” More…

DBL (Design-Based Learning), a sixth-grade elective here at Stacey, is learning about ecosystems, landforms, and history. As a team, the students have debated about their landforms and what their priorities were.  They used percentages to help them with their decision. The students created landforms for science, history, and math. 

This project furthers their learning about ecosystems in science. Their goal is to learn how land and ecosystems affect civilization.

The three teachers involved are Ms. Winemiller, Mrs. Kleen, and Ms. Faulkner. Mrs. Winemiller teaches the students how the ecosystem is affected by land. Mrs. Kleen teaches the students how to use ratios and area to design the land, and Ms. Faulkner helps by teaching how the land affects trade in history.
