STAFF SHOUT OUTS!!

COACH HOWARD        

  • Staff Shout-out to Pete Howard for his differentiated instruction during P.E. using the heart rate monitors. Every student in the class is 100% engaged in keeping their heart rate up. Visual monitoring is projected on the wall so students can track their own progress! Awesome job Mr. Howard!

* Many thanks to Countryside Bank for donating the IPAD for this program.


 

 

 

 

 

MRS. VALENTINE        

  • Staff Shout-out to Laura Valentine for working through the Field Museum to rent a bones/tools kit for her classroom. While working in different small group sessions the students are able to compare and contrast different features for different species. Each small group features a different learning style so students have opportunities to learn in different ways! Way to go Mrs. Valentine!
