Students in Katie Jacobs’ fourth grade class at Franklin Elementary worked on building hydraulic powered claws in class during the month of May. This end of the year STEM project led to seeing life-sized machines up close and in person.
Rose Hill Elementary create their own “wishtree” to share their hopes and dreams
This spring, the entire Rose Hill Elementary School community took part in a shared reading and learning experience that launched on Read Across America Day and culminated in an outdoor event and group photo. Together students, their families and staff read Wishtree by Katherine Applegate, the New York Times bestselling story of kindness, friendship and tolerance. The school Equity Team created a reading schedule, questions and several activities to take the learning beyond the pages of the book. In partnership with the LWSD Equity Department and their supportive PTSA, all families had access to copies of the book in various languages. On May 2, the community came together to tie their hopes and dreams on their very own “wishtree” in front of the school.
