The Elementary Challenge Project Lead the Way - Launch students, grades K – 6, along with their instructors, Michelle Bobo and Jana Monzyk, were invited to visit the Intro to Engineering - Project Lead the Way high school class taught by Shawn Wallace.
The Challenge students were introduced to the availability and extension of the design component of the software, Autodesk Inventor, being used in the engineering class.
The elementary students have been using the same 3D programming software in a scaled down version, to develop and create 3D models to build robots and gliders and solve real-world problems, in the PLTW Launch curriculum in the Elementary Challenge classroom.
The Challenge students also were able to examine and witness the inner-workings and use of 3D printers and laser engravers.
Photos from the elementary students visit to the high school are below.
For students who have been issued a 1:1 device, those devices will be collected at the end of the school year. Seniors will turn in their devices to the HelpDesk once they have finished their last final.
Seniors will turn in their devices, chargers and bags.
Elementary students will turn in their devices to their classroom teachers during the last week of school. Elementary students will keep their bags and chargers. They will need to bring the same bag and charger with them when classes resume next year, or they cannot be issued a device.
Ninth through eleventh graders will turn in their devices to the teachers of their last hour final exam. These students will also keep their bags and chargers and will need to bring them back during registration next year in order to be issued their device.
Devices will be cleaned and checked for damages over the summer. If repairs are necessary, a claim will be filed through One2OneRisk.com, and parents will be notified via email of associated fees for repairs. If you know your child has missing or damaged items, please have them report this to the HelpDesk, or their homeroom teacher, as soon as possible so this can be addressed before the last day.
Contact the HelpDesk at the high school or your child's school for more information.
The School District of Washington is proud to offer these devices for educational purposes and we appreciate the support and the cooperation of everyone involved.
Students in the Teaching Careers Program at Four Rivers Career Center have worked to raise money during the 2015-16 school year.
Several fundraisers have been completed, including Hat and Dress Down Days, 50/50 Raffles, and a Dine to Donate at Los Cabos.
“We would like to donate part of our proceeds to the Franklin County Area United Way because we admire how much the organization contributes to education in our community,” said Teaching Careers Instructor Jenny Meers. “Making a donation to the Franklin County United Way is something we hope to do every year.”
Teaching Careers students presented a check for $100 to Dr. Rachael Franssen, Franklin County Area United Way Board of Directors member, on Monday, May 2.
“We're very excited about this donation,” Meers said. “We felt this was a great pilot year for the Teaching Careers Program, and I am excited to see it expand to a full-time program next year.”
A photo of the check presentation is below.
Washington NNDCC/NJROTC had its Military Ball on Saturday, April 30, at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish.
Approximately 225 people were in attendance, including Washington Mayor Sandy Lucy, School District of Washington Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer and WHS Associate Principal and 2016-17 Principal Dr. Kelle McCallum.
“We were able to celebrate our community’s veterans and positively showcase our cadet knowledge of military customs and tradition,” said Lt. Tim Raines, Washington instructor.
"My heartfelt thanks to the Cadets and Lt. Tim Raines for the planning and organization of the Military Ball. The Navy traditions were visible and the evening was enjoyable and inspiring,” VanLeer said. “I am thankful the Washington community can benefit so greatly from a program offered by the School District of Washington."
'It was an honor to attend the Washington Military Ball,” McCallum said. “The event is an excellent representation of the hard work and dedication of our students, parents and community members. Thank you to all the volunteers who made the event possible."
Specific awardees were Washington native Bernie Hillermann, a Korean War veteran.
The guest speaker was Rear Admiral Lee Metcalf, who committed to making a $1,000 donation on behalf of the Navy League, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve; and the St Louis Regional Alliance for the Troops (raft.org).
Specifically, the $1,000 is for the School District of Washington to support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education and in thanks for their support of the NJROTC program.
Metcalf also committed $1,000 to Mayor Lucy specifically for or to any of the City’s programs/initiatives to help military or veterans in the Washington area.
