Mrs. Ferguson also completed a grant application through the Claysburg Education Foundation’s Venture Grant initiative.  The Foundation approved her application and awarded her $557.70 for her proposal, Qballs made by PeeQ Technologies.  Qballs are portable, throwable microphones.  It is perfect for classroom discussion and audience engagement.  These pictures are of grade 1 students using Qballs during an acrostic poem lesson.

The Claysburg Education Foundation Announces 2018 Summer STEM Arts Program

Ocean Animal Rescue

Students from Miss Wicker’s reading class recently read a story about life in the ocean. The class was so interested they decided to do some extra research on ocean life. Each student chose their own topic, researched it with books from the school library and internet resources. After gathering research, each student wrote a brief expository paragraph detailing their topic. To go along with their research each student was able to use the 3D printer to create their ocean animal. Students that completed the project with proficiency were able to take their model home.

At the Jan. 10th board meeting, Mrs. Tara Woolridge, a grade 6 teacher and an after school STEM teacher, represented the elementary STEM students.  These STEM students have been working on different watershed activities (water cycle in a bag, calculating water usage, water filtration, etc.) in preparation for a Winter Watershed Festival at Saint Francis University that was held on December 18.  At this festival, CKE students presented the activities they have been working on during the after school STEM program as well as plans for future activities.  Our STEM students were awarded three ribbons at the festival (most innovative project, most artistic project, and best communicated project)!  CKSD board of directors acknowledged these students and their accomplishments at the board meeting and issued certificates to all of the students involved in the SFU festival.
