Today RCAA students explored the Rock River to find examples of humans helping and hurting nature. It was a brilliant morning for a short walk. Today was also our spirit day to dress like country folk. Yay for jeans, braids, boots, and plaid!
We are currently discovering what happens at the Sewage Treatment Plant by listening to our guest speakers. It's a bit disgusting, but really interesting. This will help us further answer our guiding question: How does Beloit affect the Rock River?
Mr. Jobb, Mrs. Watson, and I are at the WISN PBL retreat in De Pere, WI. We spent our morning looking at schedules for next year, online portfolios, service learning, and expeditions. These were all exciting topics (to your teachers, anyway), and we got SO much done.
It is already midterm! Four students won $25 iTunes gift cards by earning their way into a drawing for students who were all caught up on their work.
Summer approaches quickly, as does project presentation week. We love that we can spend more time outside. Olivia did her misunderstood dog breeds presentation out in the sunshine with great success.
We held our open house on Tuesday night. There were dozens of prospective students who were dazzled by our very own student guides. The staff was very proud of the way our students spoke of RCAA and how helpful/honest they were to the families that visited.
Have a fantastic weekend, everyone. Don't procrastinate your course-work. Summer-school approaches quickly, too!
Ms. Palumbo needs a place for her random thoughts. She's putting them here!
