CONGRATULATIONS 2015 NATIONAL PROMISING PRACTICE WINNERS!
Bear Exploration Center
for Math, Science, and Technology
Project: Clothespin Project
The Clothespin Project was designed to help students recognize elements of prejudice in everyday life and think of ways to fight against intolerance and discrimination. The project also leads to discussions about the importance of learning that every person in this world is important, regardless of what meets the eye. It inspires and empowers students to become not only socially aware, but also socially active.
Cordova Elementary School
Project: Careers with Character
School Career Days are excellent times to invite speakers from your community to inspire students! Why not inspire them by showing them how character traits are used on the job? Speakers were invited to present their careers and show practical application of character traits that often attribute to success in their chosen field.
Vaughn Road Elementary School
Project: Promoting Service Learning Through Gardening
This project is dedicated to teaching students about ecology and conservation. We have chosen to dedicate the entire week to campus beautification. Service learning has played a great role in teaching children to give back. This campus beautification project will allow them to have a hand in creating an aesthetically pleasing learning environment. Pine straw, bedding plants, and fertilizer will be purchased from Lowe’s Home Building and used to beautify our school’s campus.
