Families joined together for an evening of Thanksgiving themed sta- tions and a lite supper. Families that attended freely trav- eled through stations. Options consisted of cupcake walk, Thanksgiving BIN- GO, scavenger hunt around the school, art activity and story time. "We planned for over 100 people for the event. We were so pleased that we had just around 100 attend." Mrs. Shannon Markusen said. Mrs. Markusen and Ti- tle I staff coordinated the activities and meal for this event. Mrs. Markusen con- tinued, "The purpose for our GOLD Family Night and GOLD Reading Days are to encourage family members to spend some time within our school building doing activities that promote a positive attitude and academic achievement. But most of all doing things that make learning fun!" With parents involved, students are more likely to take responsibility for learning, consistently complete home- work and do better on their coarse work. The results of parent involvement are undeniable. Families of elementary stu- dents are invited back for another GOLD Reading Day on Friday, Feb- mary 2nd, 2018 at 3:05-3:20pm.

They were to create a chute that would transport an acorn into a cup. At home, parents may hear their kids chatter about STEM but don't necessarily know what it means. Students use an engi- neering design process to com- plete the challenge. For the acorn chute they needed to explore structural stability because the chute needed to be a minimum of 12 inches off the ground and 20 inches long. Students needed to consider repeatability, five acorns needed to travel down the chute and land in the cup. A great deal of time was used to make modifi- cations to make them work pre- dictably. What made this challenge unique is that the acorns don't roll as well as per- fect spheres which brings up an opportunity to discuss force and motion as well as friction and 3D shapes. In addition to helping spark kids' interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), the activity was intended to foster a community feeling throughout the elementary school and show them what STEM was all about. At the elementary- school age, STEM can spark a lot of creativity. Students were di- vided into small mixed-grades groups allowing upper grades students to become leaders of a team. Students in primary grades get a chance to build a relation- ship with older students. One of the big talking points for STEM education is that is pre- pares students for the future job market. Students exercise differ- Photos: Submitted ent thinking skills, rely on com- municating ideas with each other, work together to build their ideas and use creativity to solve prob- lems with the design. Our stu- dents say it's just fun, fun to work together on hands-on stuff.
