Design and Flight: Aerospace Experience

Students in 5th grade have been engaged in a series of science, technology, enginereing and mathematic (STEM) lessons connected to the field of Aerospace.  Through hands-on projects that incorporated collaboration with peers and the construction of rockets and  wing design, students were assessed on their creative construction of an efficient rocket, succes of their rocket launch without fail and most importantly their ability to collaborate and work as a team. The end of the unit was complimented with an engaging opportunity to meet A-10 pilot Major Greg Krino.  Major Krino knew he wanted to be a pilot when he was in 2nd grade after watching Star Wars.  With the dream of being the next Luke Skywalker, Major Krino attended the Airforce Academy where he learned about flying. His story inspired our students to pursue their dream through their education, choosing the right friends who will be supportive, be a good person in the community and an athlete which promotes their health and happiness.

Ms. Susan Astarita, the district’s senior associate superintendent and chief academic officer, has announced her retirement.

Astarita.jpg

“It has been my privilege to work in the Newport Mesa Unified School District for the last 22 years,” Said Astarita. “I’ve enjoyed the focus on teaching and learning, the collegiality and the team atmosphere. I’ve worked with the finest teachers, principals, District staff, Superintendent and Board of Education,” she added.  

 

Ms. Astarita’s 39-year career in public education began as a teacher in the Santa Ana Unified School District where she worked for 17 years, serving as a principal and District-level administrator before joining Newport Mesa Unified School District in 1994.  Most recently she served as the senior associate superintendent and chief academic officer, overseeing overall elementary and secondary education services for the district, which includes early childhood education, curriculum design and implementation, assessments, education technology, college and career education and special projects.

 

Ms. Astarita is looking forward to having time to explore her family history, participate more actively in the local Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Orange County Society of Mayflower Descendants. She enjoys golf and is looking forward to having time to practice and play on a more regular basis.

 

“I would like to congratulate Susan and wish her the best of luck in her retirement,” said Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro. “She has done an exceptional job at focusing recourses and aligning the Education Services Division to better meet the needs of our students and support to our school sites. I truly value and admire her great work and leadership, and will miss her tremendously,” Navarro added.

 

Ms. Astarita’s last day is June 30, 2016. Within the next few weeks an interim senior associate superintendent and chief academic officer will be assigned. The District anticipates filling the vacancy prior to the start of the 2016/17 school year.

One Billion Acts of Kindness.png
 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is joining the Orange County Department of Education’s One Billion Acts of Kindness initiative, which launched this month and will continue until reaching one billion acts of kindness in Orange County.
 

As the name of the campaign suggests, the goal is to register one billion good deeds throughout Orange County, in an effort to promote civility, character and positive school climates in Orange County — and hopefully beyond.
 

“This is a wonderful initiative that we wholeheartedly support,” said Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro. “As educators it is important to look beyond just academics and foster positive school climates to nurture students’ emotional and social well-being,” he said.
 

All kind acts count toward the goal of one billion, regardless of where they occur. Be sure to record the acts by posting to social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) using the hashtag #kindness1billion, or by visiting the website www.kindness1billion.org and clicking on the designated button. There also is an option for schools and community organizations to submit multiple acts at once.
 

An act of kindness can be as simple as welcoming a new student to school, picking up a discarded cup along the sidewalk or writing a kind note to a friend or family member. It could be more involved, such as visiting a home for senior citizens, joining a beach clean-up or volunteering at a local animal shelter. Either way, it is about doing something kind with no expectation of reciprocity.
 

Please join us in spreading kindness and together we can reach One Billion Acts of Kindness. For more information, please visit www.kindness1billion.org.
