Students in Ms. Senchak‚Äôs 8th grade science classes have been learning about genetics.  Their most recent focus was on DNA - the smallest part (called a nucleotide), its components (sugar, phosphate & base) and the four types of bases (Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine and Guanine). Students studied base pairings and produced complementary DNA strands.  As a reinforcement to DNA, students participated in a lab where they created their name in DNA!  Each student used paper to code the letters of their name according to the chart, and then formed the complementary strand.  The DNA strand was then produced from licorice and marshmallows, with each color of marshmallow represented each different base.  In order to "pass the lab," each student had to have the bases checked and fashion their DNA into a double helix... and, of course, eat the final product!  Read more to see photos from the lab.

Dear New Castle Junior High School Families,

The entire New Castle Junior High School has a great opportunity to attend the movie Wonder at Westgate Cinema.  The seventh grade students will attend on Wednesday, December 6th, and the eighth grade students will attend on Thursday, December 7th.  The students will depart from the Junior High School immediately following their lunch period at approximately 11:30a.m.  Students will return promptly to the Junior High School at 2:15 p.m. in time for dismissal.

Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells an incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of a fifth grade student named August Pullman, a boy with facial differences, who is entering school for the first time.  August is faced with many challenges throughout the movie, including positive and negative peer interactions, as well as his struggle to accept the support and love from his family.  The movie exudes a clear, positive message about choosing kindness and acceptance regardless of appearances, unconditional love, and true friendship. Empathy and perseverance are also strong themes throughout.

This opportunity is made possible by the generosity of Westgate Cinema and the NCASD. If you feel this would be a beneficial experience for your child, please complete THIS PERMISSION SLIP and return to the Junior High Office no later than Monday, December 4, 2017.  Any student without a permission slip will stay at school.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at cmorell@ncasd.com or 724-656-4700.  

Kind regards,

Carol Morell

Junior High Principal
