Today, our students and staff prepared for a POTENTIAL Connected Learning Snow Day tomorrow, Jan. 7. Your student will come home with their school-issued device. We are closely monitoring the weather. If school is canceled tomorrow morning, we will send out a call, text, post it on social media, our website, and share it on the local TV channels. We hope you are staying safe and warm.
GO CAPS students in the STEM strand have been tasked with redesigning specific paint line methods for particular EFCO parts. Believing "effective innovation requires imitation," the students replicated EFCO’s current hanger system to better aid workers’ environments. After creating and discussing ideas with EFCO leadership, the students ultimately applied their proposed improvements to the system. Based on feedback from the final presentation to EFCO leadership, STEM students are confident the new system will be utilized in the workplace. This is an example of the projects students in GoCAPS accomplish. Students did an exceptional job presenting to the EFCO leadership team. Way to go, GO CAPS team!

December 4, 2020: Students in 2nd grade had a virtual field trip with the Nature Center. They learned about reptiles, birds, and many other animals. Even though students could not physically visit the Nature Center, they were still able to learn about wildlife. Students saw a real snake and discovered that the scales on the snake's belly protects them from hard and dangerous surfaces.
