The Fort Calhoun Elementary School was able to fund-raise a grand total of $4,021.65 for Hoops for Heart! Over the last couple of weeks, the students learned about being HEART healthy through basketball skills and activities and how we, as a school, can help others. Great job to everyone!
College Exposure Trip to SECC @ Milford
Spanish Class Activity
The Spanish 2 students have been learning about the culture in Puerto Rico and learned about the festivals that take place in Ponce. Within the culture they learned about the masks the people wear in the parades and the meaning behind them. With the help of Mr. High Horse, they created their own masks with molds, plaster and paint. The students used their iPads to record themselves describing their masks and were able to share the descriptions with their classmates.

Mrs. Wellman-HighHorse commented saying, “I had originally learned about this creation-based website at least year’s NETA conference. I decided to utilize it in my classroom, as it aligns with my philosophy of more project-based assessments. In addition, knowing about this contest fueled my ambition to use it even more.”
