We are implementing a new language arts curriculum this year at JES, and the process is going well. Our elementary teachers are working very hard to vitalize their reading and writing classroom activities with engaging literature and fun writing assignments. As we move into the ISAT testing window this year, we expect to see our reading and writing scores improve as a direct result of implementing the Journeys curriculum.
Thanks to our parents who participated in the STEM Family Night organized by Jessica Clemenhagen and her capable, afterschool program staff. Over one hundred people attended, eating diner in the cafeteria with their families and participating in the learning activities in the gym. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is our desire to graduate more students who will specialize in these four area.
The family night turned into a wonderful, exciting event for all who were there. Six STEM stations were setup around the gym floor and additional computer-animation stations were setup in the fourth and fifth grade classrooms. Our elementary teachers volunteered to run some of these stations. Mrs. Morgan did Blobs in a Bottle and Mrs. Tweit did Build a Ship. Other stations included Paper Football, Drag Device, Straw Rockets, and Cubelets.
Mrs. Clemenhagen supplied each station with a stamp pad so the leaders could give students a stamp for completing the learning activity at their station. Students were given passports to take around and those who completed all the stations earned toys from a treasure box or extra recess the next day at school. The incentives were provided to entice the students to come with their families and participate in a fun evening. The STEM Family Night was a total success. Time will tell, but our hope is that many of our students will go on to graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
