I enjoy finding community resources to enhance my students' learning. I recently invited the Winnebago-Boone County Farm Bureau to present Agriculture in the Classroom to all the kindergarten students at Spring Creek Elementary School. The Ag in the Classroom program offers many topics that coordinate well with Integrated Literacy in my classroom.
The first presentation was about maple syrup. It included a story about sap harvesting, posters, discussions and a syrup tasting. Then students wrote about the process.
Two other presentations, Gardening Greatness and Busy Bees, have been planned that address several kindergarten essential learning outcomes (Life Cycles and Impacts on the Earth).
Thank you Winnebago-Boone County Farm Bureau for being a great resource for our students!
Students who are new to RPS 205 must first enroll in the district.
The state released formal guidelines on Tuesday about what in-person learning will look like this fall.
This message might not surprise you, but we wanted to share our disappointment with our students and graduates.
RPS 205 teachers and students will comply with all Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines.
Please enroll for the 2020-21 school year before July 10.
