100 Mile Club

We had a couple of great 100 Mile Club celebrations last week.  As a school we ran over 10,500 miles this year!  That is about 3,000 more miles than we ran the previous year!  I'm very proud of each of our participants and look forward to another great 100 Mile Club season in the Fall.  Click here to see our final video.

Thank you and have a fun and active summer!

See How Makerspaces Work and Benefit Kids at Every Grade Level

Makerspaces are dedicated areas that promote learning through play and experimentation. They are designed to accommodate a wide range of activities and are stocked with tools and materials that encourage students to design, build, invent and experiment as they deeply engage in learning.

Makerspaces are ideal for teaching 21st century skills such as collaboration and teamwork, creativity and imagination, critical thinking and problem solving.
