FOOD DRIVE - Mr. Hilger's 4/5 grade classroom participated in the Mid-Morning Kiwanis Club's Food Drive during December.  To encourage students, they crafted  ideas for raffle baskets.  Each donated item received one ticket to be placed in the raffle bucket of choice. The top raffle prize was a giant panda bear.  Here are the winners and the students that helped with the morning drawing.

DISCOVERY WORLD ADVENTURE

ALPs Charter 6-8 grade students went to Discovery World on Friday, December 13th.  Half of the day students participated in a dissection lab learning how to properly dissect a specimen, and learning the interior and exterior parts of a perch.  Many students were unsure how they felt about dissections while others thoroughly enjoyed it.  The other half of the day was spent exploring the rest of the museum.  Discovery World does a great job helping students learn about a variety of science content in real life examples.  Student flew a plane, drove a car, swam in the deep dark of the ocean, laid on a bed of nails, felt stingrays, fish, and horseshoe crabs.  Students had a blast and have been talking about it since!
