PBL Highlight

At the beginning of the school year, first-grade students adopted a cow from a local farm. They were able to follow the young calf's journey as it grew and were even able to name the cow. As the year ends, the first graders are receiving their final update and preparing to adopt a new cow for the upcoming school year.

Technology Integration

Our sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students were taking a closer look into our computer technology. They had the opportunity to take apart a computer and identify all the components of the central processing unit. Then students had the opportunity to put together a motherboard, the part of the computer that holds and allows communication between many of the crucial electronic components of a system.

Character Development

When students understand that their perspective can change the way they experience life, they receive a powerful gift. We are always choosing a perspective; we just are not always conscious of the choices we make. Students may "do" their homework but rarely (if ever) take the time to determine how they "see" their homework and the bigger implications that it may have in their life. After all, if they get into the habit of "seeing" homework as punishment, they are setting themselves up for future punishment. The good news is if we don't like what we see - we can change it! We may not be able to change the conditions, but we can change how we see and experience those conditions.
