Naturalization Ceremony

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.

Road to Success with Food Truck Projects

Opening a restaurant can be tricky business, with the first year usually being the toughest. Startup costs for an average restaurant can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, while maintaining equipment and other capital investments can mean a struggle that goes on for several years into the life of that investment. Last year alone, the Food Truck Industry reached nearly 3 billion dollars with it becoming one of the fastest growing private business industries in the country. Students at the Lake Park Audubon High School, enrolled in the Family Consumer Science Culinary International Foods class, got a small taste of what it might be like to run such a business. Six different teams generated marketing and business plans around the international country assigned to them at the beginning of the semester. Using resources from the National FCS Association, teams developed menus, promotional flyers, a company logo, cost and profit margin plans, as well as preparing one food entrée from their menu based on the marketing survey of their co-classmates. “The Food Truck project was a fun and different learning experience,” stated student Cailey Rosing, adding, “I give a lot of credit to the people who can balance their time and energy to run this type of business.” FCS Instructor Cheryl Hogie teaches the International Foods Culinary Class. This is the first time this particular project has been implemented; however, Hogie does plan to use the project plan again in the future.
