Halloween is a big deal at Blake! The staff can hardly wait to reveal their costume theme! This year you just need to hear 2 words to know what it is--
Listen to this episode to hear a fun interview of how the Halloween theme came to be with Susan Bycoff, Math Content Leader. We also sent out our FlipGrid question to staff and students to share their best costumes evah! With Halloween trick or treating in mind, the 8th grade Health & Wellness class gives some helpful tips! And.. to round out Halloween, Mrs. Ruminski announces the winners of the annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest!
Our On the Road segment takes us to Foxborough and Gillette Stadium the home of the Patriots for the enormous MassCue Conference. This segment includes a brief talk with Kim Keith, MassCue Board member and CueLand organizer. She tells us about the new addition of the CueLand to the conference to include a good listen to Cueland participants and all the interesting ways they teach students coding with Rasberry Pi. But that's not all.. we also had a team of 8th graders participate in the CueKids Innovative Showcase! They brought their inventions, the Shher and the Light Up Map to share the problem it solves in the school and explain how they applied the design thinking process to develop their idea.

Lastly, student leadership is a big part of Blake! So, HeimTime stopped by to talk to the Student Council and get some insights in the work that they do.
Ok.. let's get to it. Take a listen below!
