#1 Middle School science lab
I remember stepping into the science lab and seeing the new equipment, safety gear, and supplies. This created the opportunity to explore the depths of science through interactive experiments. I can tell you that every one of my classmates felt the same excitement as I did as we dove into hands-on experiments and discovered how much fun learning can be.
We strive for our current students to share the same enthusiasm for learning and we believe it is imperative to completely transform the Middle School science lab.

#2 Technology advancement for Pre-k and elementary
Mrs. Snyder, one of our dedicated 5th Grade teachers, shared how important this technology is to her students’ learning. “It has been great having a Chromebook cart in my classroom. We have easy access to the computers and each student has a Chromebook charged and dedicated just for them!” This easy access to technology has also given teachers the ability to instantly share classroom materials, homework information, grades and create access to a database of educational materials at the click of a button.
Our beloved Kindergarten teacher, Katie Churms, was excited to hear the iPads in the PreK and Kindergarten classrooms are being replaced this summer. She stated, “Next year we will be incorporating the Seesaw application on the iPads. Seesaw allows the students to maintain a digital portfolio so they can email their work directly to their parents. It is completely secure and only allows outgoing mail. The student can also send videos of STEM projects, pictures of writing assignments, and progress in books they are reading.” What a wonderful resource for parents to become more involved in their child’s educational development!
#3 New Elementary Flooring
Just a short time ago, we also took it upon ourselves to replace all the carpeting and ceiling tiles in the elementary classrooms. It has been a goal of ours to replace the tile flooring in the halls, bathrooms, and smaller sections of the classrooms for some time. We are happy to announce the time has come for this project to be completed. This summer these areas will receive a facelift. Keeping all of our campus facilities up to date allows us to ensure the health and safety of our students while maintaining a modern feel to the campus.
We hope you have enjoyed reading about our plans to renovate the campus this summer and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kyle Hays (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for your support in making these projects and the Fun Run a success!
