CCSS Technology Competition

Productivity Design Winner
Abby Gribben placed 1st place in the Carroll County Technology Competition in the Productivity Design category for 3rd and 4th grade. She used Google Suite to create a survey about our Snack Shack and how to improve it. She then sent it to all 3rd-5th grade students, collected the data, then compiled the data into charts and graphs. She used Google Slides to create a presentation to present the information she collected. She will compete in the Regional Competition the first week of February. It's a great day to be a Tiger! 

CCSS Technology Competition

Sophie and Audrey
Sofiah Curlee (left) and Audrey Lak (right) placed 1st in the Carroll County Technology Competition in the 3D Modeling category for 3rd and 4th grade. They wanted to create a more comfortable chair for students as school. They used an online program called Tinkercad to design the chair, they printed it on the 3D printer, made some revisions, then reprinted the final chair. Their presentation consisted of their first print, the final print, and a presentation on how they came up with the idea, created the chair, and printed the chair. They will compete in the Regional Competition the first week of February. It's a great day to be a Tiger!

Bright Idea Grant Winners

Bright Ideas Grant
We are so excited to share that three of our educators won Carroll EMC Grants this year. Mrs. Ashley Schinella received $850 for flexible seating in her 4th grade reading/ELA room. Mrs. Missy Calas received $1000 for creative independent projects with Stop-motion video and micro bit robotic kits for our Quest students. Mrs. Xaviera Kight (not pictured) received $990 for a variety of STEAM manipulatives for use by all of our students in the STEAM Lab. We are so excited for these ladies and for what these grants will do for our students. A big thank you to Carroll EMC for providing these opportunities for our teachers and students! It’s a great day to be a Tiger! 

AIAA Grant Winner

AIAA Grant Winner
Mrs. Xaviera Kight also received a $500 grant from AIAA. AIAA supplies teachers with all the tools they will need to stir the curiosity of their students. Those tools are fun, engaging, and, mostly, “hands-on,” to ensure the students thrive in their learning environment. Mrs. Kight wrote, “I want to give my students the opportunity to explore different manipulatives of their choice. I would like to include various magnetic, sensory, arts/crafts, numerical, and engineering options to hit every part of STEAM. Creativity and imagination are characteristics that fuel the future…My students can design various projects with a wide range of materials. This fosters student creativity by providing them with a more hands-on experience and letting them create projects with objects they never had access to before. My students will be innovative when using the manipulatives by creating real-world applications for solutions, encouraging them to think in a new way, and pushing to develop original ideas. My students will incorporate the engineering design process into their STEAM projects to find solutions.”
Congratulations Mrs. Kight! It’s a great day to be a Tiger!
