Learning isn't always about finding the correct answer. Much of our most important learning begins with being able to ask good questions! I love how this class is beginning their unit on poetry by asking and thinking about questions.
Similarly, this fourth grade class began this math lesson by asking questions about the measurement of "leprechaun juice".
What's happening here? Our fifth grade students participated in a Basketball Shoot-out Fundraiser to raise money for a special gift to the school. What would be a good gift for Dryden?
Why is everyone rollerskating? We had a great turnout and a great time at our PTA Family Skate Night!
What does it take to be recognized for outstanding citizenship? Ask Lucy, her teachers and Major League Soccer Hall of Famer Brian McBride! Lucy was selected by our staff to be recognized at the Illinois Principal Association North Cook Region Student Recognition Breakfast last week.
Brian McBride was the keynote speaker at the breakfast. He provided a motivating speech to the students about leadership, trust and integrity.
What are these second grade students creating? They are working together as they research and create a mural of various Australian territories. This group is creating a mural of the Great Barrier Reef.
Who wants to make a positive impact? This group does! How? By helping our school custodians! About a month ago, five students approached me and ASKED how they could help our school custodians. We ASKED Mr. Bob and Mr. Ron what we could do to help them. The students began organizing our Lost & Found and wiping scuff marks off the tiled floor. Other students ASKED if they could join this enthusiastic group. We now have a club, The Clean-Up Crew, of over 25 students! They are spreading a positive message for caring for our school facilities and grounds while helping our custodians. They are making a positive impact because they ASKED the right questions! I couldn't be more proud of them!
