Today we held our end of year celebration with senior students who have been in the Grow Your Own Teacher Course all year long. Students in this class had 3 days of instruction and 2 days of being in classrooms with mentor teachers every week! Students held a breakfast with their mentor teachers this a.m. to thank them and to say something nice about them. Students who plan to continue to go into the teaching field in college did a signing ceremony in the theater after breakfast! Each student received a local scholarship as well! Congratulations to all of our students and staff who helped make this a great first year! We have another group of students signed up for next year!

Whether the Titanic, Hindenburg, Halifax, or Chernobyl, every student engaged in direct debate, peer evaluation, peer feedback or an online topic chat. What an awesome week of high level learning, great job Mrs. Haars and Mrs. Schmidt!

Millikin 4th graders helped clean up the garden bed in front of the elementary school in honor of Earth Day. They made light work of this challenging task. Once the weeding was finished, they spread wildflower seeds throughout the garden to help the pollinators and beautify the school grounds.
