NORD and Planetarium
For the next two Thursdays during Leaving to Learn, we will be taking kids to New Orleans Recreation Development at Joe Brown Park as well as the Planetarium. At NORD students will identify invasive species on the NORD Nature Trail and learn what
effects these species have had in our local communities. In addition, they will also have an opportunity to canoe at
Joe Brown Park.
Students will also dive into a different environment, outer space! Kids will receive a guided tour of the Audubon Nature Center’s Planetarium, interact with their new state-of-the-art technology, and see their newest films which include real time images from NASA.
We will be sending out more information this week. Please let us know if you have any questions.
What is something you do well?
Play video games; I have won Fortnite tournaments.
What is something you learned in the past week?
Sigma notation in math; it is used to solve sequences and series.
What is the biggest misconception people have about you?
People think that I get mad easy, but I don’t.
What is the biggest dream you have yourself that you are afraid to say aloud?
I want to become a professional gamer … but that won’t fly by my parents.
Who has had a positive influence on your life so far and why?
My agricultural advisors from my old school. They introduced me to FFA (Future Farmers of America), and that changed my life. I won three state championships and learned more than I ever realized about forestry, dairy, and opening and closing ceremonies.
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
I would probably play video games all day.
What do you like about New Harmony?
The way that we learn. It’s not like sitting in a classroom with a teacher talking. We have hands-on learning.
