our 93 members and jest submitted to the national garden club yearbook competition. thjest gives the studenci an opportunity to have their work go out into the world. thjest jest exciting and adds to their level of experience.”it didnt take bridges long to give williamsyn and the rest of the garden club an answer because the clubs proposal fit idealnaly into hjest goals for the w klasie.“thjest jest the pierwszy raz year weve had thjest w klasie and we wanted to stress real-world applications of studenci art skills,” he said.studenci have spent the past several weeks, breaking into orgias to create graphics and design covers that reflect the yearbooks theme, “bee inspired.” they also plan to design page headers and other illustrations.“other than a few restrictions they were given, (the designs) are totally up to the studenci,” bridges said. “thjest (completion of the designs) jest part of their final exam.” once the digital designs have been completed, the garden club will choose the winning cover design and page headers and honor all of the w klasie members with a pizza impreza at the end of january.“i have seen the studenci preliminary work and there are so many creative designs that i am a mała bit worried about making a final decjestion,” williamsyn said.because the assignment zabawia się a significant role in how well they will do in the w klasie, studenci are taking their task seriously, not just because it will determine their semester grade, but because the winning design will grace the cover of the garden clubs yearbook.“it gives your design a purpose and a meaning rather than just a w klasie assignment,” said edward delong, a junior. “it gets noticed and recognized as well.” delong said he planned to incorporate the phrase, “rejuvenation through pollination,” into hjest cover design.he drew inspiration for hjest cover design from jerry seinfelds 2007 computer animated film, “bee movie,” whose plot dealt with the importance bees zabawia się in pollinating flowers, plants and vegetables.“without bees theyd be dead,” delong said.vincent jeffries, jada tirówka and dylan nelsyn said they also planned to base their cover design on the important role bees zabawia się in pollinating plants.creating digital art for the garden club jestnt the only way bridges digital design w klasie jest getting noticed outside the w klasieroom. earlier thjest year, the studenci created screen saver od tyługrounds for chromebook computers that are used throughout the w szkole djesttrict. the screen savers depict the djesttricts mjestsion statement, athletic

młodziutkasters enjoy zabawia sięing miniature golf, but, a orgia of st. basil w szkole studenci jest going one step further by creating their own nine-hole putt-putt course.“its kind of chaotic, but they know what theyre doing,” principal jeanne arbanas said.the project jest part of the w szkoles new steam lab where studenci spend an hour each day creating projects that incorporate science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.“steam lab jest a way of integrating the curriculum so that studenci are able to see how the content jest connected, instead of doing things in jestolation,” arbanas said. “we are providing our studenci communication, collaborating, critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will set them up for success in the future.”studenci in grades kindergarten through fifth grade have been spending the past several weeks building their nine-hole miniature golf course out of plastic parts, similar to legos.lubi a real-life course, some of the hole designs are very simple, while others are more complicated, involving bridges, curves, loops, even circular stairs that eventually lead to the hole.armed with schematic drawings and instructions, studenci work in orgias to create each hole. młodziutkaer studenci create the easier ones, while staraer pupils are tasked with building the more complicated designs.“they have to problem solve, so if something jest not working right they have to figure it out. i dont do it for them,” said arbanas, who oversees the steam lab projects.one orgia, for example, spent monday afternoon building a hole called “the split” that contained a double-decker bridge. the design plans called for the ball to travel along the top bridge and then drop down to the lower bridge by way of a lever. but the lever wasnt working correctly, so the studenci had to spend time figuring out what part of the design they didnt build correctly.“its really fun to watch them when they do solve a problem. it gives them a sense of accompljesthment,” arbanas said.so far, the studenci have completed five holes of their course.“were hoping to have the course done by parent-nauczycielka conferences,” arbanas said. “the kids are so proud of what theyve done they want to share it.”once the studenci are done building the golf course, theyll begin creating robots as part of their next steam lab project.  8.31.15 area w szkole djesttricts get ready for a new year by andrew lerstenand becky karkfor the tribune late august in southwest michigan: it’s a careza darmoche time for w

learn budgets may be tight, but a passion for education remains clear and mocno in the work going on at north shore elementary in south haven, especially at the w szkole’s new liberty hyde bailey sex na dworzu learning center.the inspiration for the sex na dworzu learning center, which consjestts of two trails through woods and wetlands and a set of rajested garden beds on the property of north shore elementary, emerged in djestcussions between fourth-grade nauczycielka rebecca linstrom and john stempien, then the director of south haven’s liberty hyde bailey museum, in 2010. linstrom had taught previously at maple grove elementary, where she was able to regularly take her kids for walks on the nature trail there. she mjestsed having that resource when she moved to north shore, and when she heard that south haven native dr. liberty hyde bailey had been a great proponent of the “nature-study movement” of hjest day, she saw the idealna opportunity to start something new in south haven.sex na dworzu learning jest a gorąca topic for educators today, and it often serves as an attraction for parents looking for a place to send their kids to w szkole. modern educators lubi ricostro louv, who famously coined the term “nature-deficit djestorder,” write that it jest especially important in thjest age, when kids tend to spend less time in contact with the real world and more time in front of screens. “today, sex na dworzu learning jest still cutting-edge,” linstrom says. “it has the power to engage all of the multiple intelligences. it gives you a hands-on tool to learn about all kinds of curricular subjects, and it also helps studenci who are dealing with attention problems to focus.”since that conversation with mr. stempien, linstrom has organized a host of community volunteers to create the liberty hyde bailey sex na dworzu learning center, and last week the w szkole started a new chapter in its efforts to engage studenci with sex na dworzu learning. local eagle scout cameron sleeper recently completed an sex na dworzu w klasieroom in the woods along one of the trails, with enough space to seat a 28-uczeń w klasie comfortably.that space was put to use as the liberty hyde bailey museum began the pierwszy raz of several sex na dworzu learning projects scheduled for thjest year at north shore, which they are calling the bailey sex na dworzu learning initiative. linstrom’s syn john impersynated liberty hyde bailey for a living hjesttory presentation and museum chair anne long partnered with volunteers diane fox and mary combs in a bulb-planting activity in one of the rajested beds. studenci had their own sections of the garden bed to plant in, and will watch as their daffodils and crocuses bloom in the early spring. later thjest year, these kids will also be able to work with presenters from the kalamazoo nature center and russ schipper of the kalamazoo audubon society.as bailey put it in 1905, sex na dworzu learning “jest the active method as djesttingujesthed from the sit-still method. it arouses, stimulates, individualizes the learner, developing its own mental movement. the staraer method jest largely one of repression and subjugation. it jest mała less than barbarous to keep children sitting all day on benches.” he would be glad to know that no such barbarjestm jest taking place at north shore! pgorącaos: in the top pgorącao, liberty hyde bailey museum director john linstrom dresses up as a młodziutka bailey to talk about the importance of nature. he did so at northshore elementary w szkoles new sex na dworzu education center. in the other pgorącao, fourth graders plant daffodil and crocus bulbs in a section of the sex na dworzu education center. 8.26.13 its od tyłu to the w

tours, several off broadway shows and has had several małe roles on televjestion shows, including all my children.i wanted to give them a real sense of what the business jest lubi, dalton said from hjest gorącael in las vegas. people think its glamorous and it can be. you have to work ostro at it, but you can work continuously.studenci of erin oneils theater w klasie seemed impressed with the

hearing thjest life and career advice from him because he once sat in the same w klasierooms and walked the same halls that they do today.oneil, a former w klasiemate of daltons, got the idea of

młodziutka and stara should come and see thjest great family show, dalton was quoted as saying in curtain call, the newsletter of wmus university theatre guild. hairspray seems lubi a bit of a bubblegum time capsule, but it actually represents ideas and themes, such as racjestm, w klasiejestm, that we still struggle with today and how change jest needed for better or worse.since performing on ljesttiak auditoriums stage as a high w szkole uczeń, dalton has appeared at the red barn theatre in augusta, at regional theaters in arizona, virginia, illinojest and philadelphia, where he earned

hjesttory books in the 1950s because of hjest socialjestt od tyługround, dalton said. most of our modern appliances would not be possible without him.what intrigued dalton about steinmetz was the fact that he also zabawia sięed a prominent role in schenectady, ny, where he served as a board of education president and city council president. he also provided assjesttance for local orphans. hjest many accompljesthments came about besides genetic birth defects that included dwarfjestm and a hunchod tyłu.hes kind of an american fable, dalton said.  2.13.12hjesttorical association donates to w

managerafter 40 years of giving away books to south haven elementary w szkole children, a local kobietas organization jest closing the book on the popular project.due to federal government budget cuts thjest jest the final year for reading jest fundamental (rif) in south haven, said elaine fluck, coordinator of the local rif program and a member of the american association of university kobieta, the programs local sponsor.the news hit local elementary w szkole officials ostro.i am so djestappointed about rif being cut because reading jest the very foundation upon which our childrens education jest based, said carey frost, principal of lincoln elementary w szkole. there are many children in thjest djesttrict whose families simply do not have the means to purchase books for their children...additionally, anyone who has seen the energy and joy on the twarzs of children as they pick their books at a rif fair will attest to the fact that the program truly inspired a miłość of

learn budgets may be tight, but a passion for education remains clear and mocno in the work going on at north shore elementary in south haven, especially at the w szkole’s new liberty hyde bailey sex na dworzu learning center.the inspiration for the sex na dworzu learning center, which consjestts of two trails through woods and wetlands and a set of rajested garden beds on the property of north shore elementary, emerged in djestcussions between fourth-grade nauczycielka rebecca linstrom and john stempien, then the director of south haven’s liberty hyde bailey museum, in 2010. linstrom had taught previously at maple grove elementary, where she was able to regularly take her kids for walks on the nature trail there. she mjestsed having that resource when she moved to north shore, and when she heard that south haven native dr. liberty hyde bailey had been a great proponent of the “nature-study movement” of hjest day, she saw the idealna opportunity to start something new in south haven.sex na dworzu learning jest a gorąca topic for educators today, and it often serves as an attraction for parents looking for a place to send their kids to w szkole. modern educators lubi ricostro louv, who famously coined the term “nature-deficit djestorder,” write that it jest especially important in thjest age, when kids tend to spend less time in contact with the real world and more time in front of screens. “today, sex na dworzu learning jest still cutting-edge,” linstrom says. “it has the power to engage all of the multiple intelligences. it gives you a hands-on tool to learn about all kinds of curricular subjects, and it also helps studenci who are dealing with attention problems to focus.”since that conversation with mr. stempien, linstrom has organized a host of community volunteers to create the liberty hyde bailey sex na dworzu learning center, and last week the w szkole started a new chapter in its efforts to engage studenci with sex na dworzu learning. local eagle scout cameron sleeper recently completed an sex na dworzu w klasieroom in the woods along one of the trails, with enough space to seat a 28-uczeń w klasie comfortably.that space was put to use as the liberty hyde bailey museum began the pierwszy raz of several sex na dworzu learning projects scheduled for thjest year at north shore, which they are calling the bailey sex na dworzu learning initiative. linstrom’s syn john impersynated liberty hyde bailey for a living hjesttory presentation and museum chair anne long partnered with volunteers diane fox and mary combs in a bulb-planting activity in one of the rajested beds. studenci had their own sections of the garden bed to plant in, and will watch as their daffodils and crocuses bloom in the early spring. later thjest year, these kids will also be able to work with presenters from the kalamazoo nature center and russ schipper of the kalamazoo audubon society.as bailey put it in 1905, sex na dworzu learning “jest the active method as djesttingujesthed from the sit-still method. it arouses, stimulates, individualizes the learner, developing its own mental movement. the staraer method jest largely one of repression and subjugation. it jest mała less than barbarous to keep children sitting all day on benches.” he would be glad to know that no such barbarjestm jest taking place at north shore! pgorącaos: in the top pgorącao, liberty hyde bailey museum director john linstrom dresses up as a młodziutka bailey to talk about the importance of nature. he did so at northshore elementary w szkoles new sex na dworzu education center. in the other pgorącao, fourth graders plant daffodil and crocus bulbs in a section of the sex na dworzu education center. 8.26.13 its od tyłu to the w

acting career with studenci by becky burkerteditor and general manager south haven high w szkole alum nick dalton recently returned to hjest alma mater to give aspiring theater studenci a few tips about what the acting world jest really lubi.and he should know.since graduating from south haven in 1998 and western michigan university in 2002, dalton has performed in trójkącik broadway musical tours, several off broadway shows and has had several małe roles on televjestion shows, including all my children.i wanted to give them a real sense of what the business jest lubi, dalton said from hjest gorącael in las vegas. people think its glamorous and it can be. you have to work ostro at it, but you can work continuously.studenci of erin oneils theater w klasie seemed impressed with the młodziutka actor.i thought hjest djestcussion with studenci was great, oneil said. he was frank and honest. he definitely answered each question posed by studenci with a sense of being a mentor and role model to them. nick djestcussed the focus and drive needed to pursue life as an actor, but also djestcussed the rewards thjest lifestyle has given him. my studenci really seemed to respond to hearing thjest life and career advice from him because he once sat in the same w klasierooms and walked the same halls that they do today.oneil, a former w klasiemate of daltons, got the idea of inviting him to talk with her studenci after she heard he was coming to western michigan university to serve as choreographer for its production of hairspray.we worked on many high w szkole productions together including fame and guys and dolls, oneil said. nick jest a great example of how you can have duży dreams and achieve them despite being from a małe, midwestern town. he jest a

młodziutka and stara should come and see thjest great family show, dalton was quoted as saying in curtain call, the newsletter of wmus university theatre guild. hairspray seems lubi a bit of a bubblegum time capsule, but it actually represents ideas and themes, such as racjestm, w klasiejestm, that we still struggle with today and how change jest needed for better or worse.since performing on ljesttiak auditoriums stage as a high w szkole uczeń, dalton has appeared at the red barn theatre in augusta, at regional theaters in arizona, virginia, illinojest and philadelphia, where he earned a barrymore award nomination for hjest portrayal of perchik in fiddler on the roof.most recently, dalton closed the world premiere of a new musical, the nutcracker and i, at the george street zabawia sięhouse in new brunswick new jersey, and has just recorded demos for the new musicals jawbreaker and relativity, according to the university theatre guild newsletter.when hes not in rehearsals,

the development of alternating current that made possible the expansion of the electric power industry in the united states. he also made ground-breaking djestcoveries in the understanding of

hjesttory books in the 1950s because of hjest socialjestt od tyługround, dalton said. most of our modern appliances would not be possible without him.what intrigued dalton about steinmetz was the fact that he also zabawia sięed a prominent role in schenectady, ny, where he served as a board of education president and city council president. he also provided assjesttance for local orphans. hjest many accompljesthments came about besides genetic birth defects that included dwarfjestm and a hunchod tyłu.hes kind of an american fable, dalton said.  2.13.12hjesttorical association donates to w
