We attended the ceremony again this year at MSUM.
41 LPA students watched 103 individuals from 34 different countries become citizens.
In today's society it is so vital that students see these people become Americans. They are all very proud to become part of our country and that students get an up close and personal view of this is amazing!
Megan Hilfer, a 2015 Lake Park Audubon graduate, received a $400.00 scholarship from the LPA Education Association. Hilfer is a senior at MSUM, Moorhead, MN, double majoring in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. While at MSUM, Hilfer has been involved in the “GiGi’s Playhouse,” a literacy program for children with Down syndrome. In addition, Hilfer has continued her legacy of volunteering at the Children’s Hospital, a service project she began while in high school, and is also a member of the SCEC-Student Council for Exceptional Children. Hilfer hopes to student teach in the San Diego area and will complete her teaching degree in the Spring of 2019. Hilfer states “I will search for a career wherever the path takes me. I hope to eventually go back for my Masters in Early Literacy.” Each year, the Lake Park Audubon Education Association gives out scholarships to help LPA alumni that are going into their senior year of college, majoring in an education field. The amount of the scholarship varies from year to year depending on the number of applicants chosen.
The 8th graders at LPA are starting off the year with some STEAM! They are already in the middle of their second collaborative problem-based learning project. Students in Mr. Wixo and Mrs. Watland's classes teamed up to design and build a tower out of tape and spaghetti noodles. The goal was to build the highest tower that could successfully hold a marshmallow on the top. Students needed to use critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as creativity, innovation, and collaboration. The 8th graders are currently in the middle of another design challenge, building catapults. This project helps students to better understand the engineering design and scientific inquiry processes while stressing the importance of teamwork! The catapults will have to hold up to five different challenges.
This year we are looking at implementing additional features to engage parents/guardians with their children's learning enivronment.
We also would like to send important information, forms, and updates to you so you are aware of what is happening in our schools. In order for us to provide these new services we need accurate and up-to-date contact information*.
