The second grade classes of Mrs. LeFevre and Mrs. Staley enjoyed a field trip to Mid-Michigan Children's Museum in Saginaw yesterday. The MMCM allowed our second graders an opportunity to explore, learn and create in an environment dedicated to supporting teaching with hands-on experiences. Each of the MMCM exhibit galleries is tied directly to the Michigan Department of Education Curriculum and National Early Learning standards. Trips like this are made possible by the community's support of our local PTO fundraisers!

Mrs. Robbins' fifth grade students are beginning a unit on colonial America today. To give them some idea of the effort it took to churn butter, she had her students make butter in a jar today. No actual churning but lots of shaking took place!
When you come into the 3rd grade wing, you may notice lots of feet moving and dancing. Mrs. Howdyshell’s class has been chosen to be part of the UNICEF Kid Power Movement that started March 1st .
Mrs. Howdyshell’s class was one of the millions of classes picked across the United States to take part in the UNICEF Kid Power challenge. Each student receives a kid power band that tracks steps and heartbeat, power points earned, and serves as a watch. As students move and groove, steps and heartrate acceleration are tracked. With every step, they draw closer to earning classroom power points. For every 10 power points, one therapeutic food packet is earned. Therapeutic food packets are protein-based food sent to children in different parts of Africa suffering from malnutrition.

The Coleman Lions Club hosted a Peace Poster contest this fall with the theme “Celebrating Peace.” The contest is a local portion of the contest held through Lions Clubs International, open to youth ages 11 – 13 around the world. Coleman Community Schools art teacher Lane Dexter helped by involving his sixth and seventh grade art students. This year’s winner is sixth grader Savanah Doke who received a check for $50. The two runners up, seventh grader Jayden Bovee and sixth grader Brayden Servis, each received $25. The three students and their families were invited to a dinner meeting and award ceremony on Nov. 7. Savanah’s poster will be entered in the district contest later in November, and if it wins will go on to the state Lions Club contest.
We love our parent volunteers! A shout out today to Megan Andrews! She helped Mrs. Brownlee's class decorate a wreath to be entered in the wreath decorating contest sponsored by the Coleman Business Association.

If that isn't enough, the wreaths will then be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the fireworks display fund.
