Fall was filled with wonderful opportunities for students to express themselves and discover new things. These outstanding October moments were memorable.
Third Graders Save Fred
The third grade students were tasked with saving Fred the Gummy Worm by getting him into his life jacket and on top of his boat without using their hands. Their tools were a few paper clips. They did great and had a lot of fun!
Ms. Thorson has found a way to teach math that gets our MS students excited to do more. This project of re-recreating a candy wrapper to scale is a top request in her classroom.
The staff team of “Past Our Primetime” was successful in being named Harvest Bowl 2018 Champions, but we’re not sure if they really won! Days later the limp in their step was still evident, but ask any of them and they’ll tell you it was worth it!
On Tuesday, October 30 our juniors and seniors spent the day touring colleges. The juniors visited the U of MN, Twin Cities campus and the University of Northwestern. They heard presentations about both colleges and toured each campus. They were able to compare a large public university with a small Christian one. The seniors visited Anoka Technical College and the University of Northwestern. They learned about two year degrees at ATC and heard from UNW staff about how to be successful in college by using your resources, getting involved and pursuing your passions.
