Congratulations Jackson!
We are very proud of Jackson, 5th grade student at Carver, who correctly spelled 49 words on Saturday at the 27th annual TH Media Regional Spelling Bee at Clarke University. Jackson ended the day as the runner up, and will be the substitute at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in DC, if the 7th grade winner from Roosevelt Middle School is unable to attend the event. Jackson prepared for the spelling bee by taking the spelling list the contestants get and writing out all the words. He has been competing in the sectional competition since third grade. Jackson says that to improve each year, "You really have to know the words and work hard." Congratulations Jackson!!!

FLL Water Detectives Compete at STATE

The Carver Elementary First Lego League (FLL) team, called the Water Detectives, competed at STATE on January 18th in Ames, Iowa after winning a qualifying trophy at the Dubuque regional event in December. This year's theme for FLL, an international program, was Nature's Fury. All teams learned about natural disasters and worked together to invent a solution to reduce their impacts.Carver students invented the Water Detective System, which was designed to alert people of water in their basement. They also built and programmed a LEGO Mindstorm robot to accomplish missions, and they learned all about FLL's signature set of Core Values. Team members include: Hughie Doyle, Jackson Viertel, Luke Kotz, Corinne Meier, Julia Howes, Alura D'Souza, Haebin Han, Emma Bastian, Sophie Sutter, Cali Rampton and Coach, Mrs. Berning. The Water Detectives recognize and are grateful for the gracious support of our John Deere mentors, Lance Sherlock, Noel D'Souza and Lynn Macrowski.

It's Here...THE HOUR OF CODE
Carver has been selected to receive $10,000 in computer equipment from Code.org as part of the school's participation in the national "Hour of Code" program during Computer Science Education Week from December 9-15. Funds from the grant will be used to purchase additional computers and software for the school.Designed to expose students to computer programming, every Carver student will spend one hour during the week learning computer science and doing online tutorials featuring Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Angry Birds, all in age-appropriate lessons. The activities the students will do in coding will help teach them problem solving, logic and critical thinking skills that are needed in all areas of their lives.
CELEBRATING the 50th Day of School

Many of the Carver kindergarten students dressed up in their coolest 50s clothes on the fiftieth day of school. Some of the girls wore poodle skirts, pony tails, Pink Lady jackets, scarves, bows and cardigans. The boys wore white shirts, rolled up jeans, letterman's jacket, and some even slicked back their hair. The math focus for the day was helping students count and write up to the number 50, counting by 2s, 5s and 10s. Fun activities included playing with toys invented back in the 50s, a bubble gum blowing contest, and a hula hoop and limbo contest and a sock hop. It was a great way to celebrate 50 days of learning fun! CLICK ON THIS LINK for more photos.

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

 


Students in 4H take time to model in their brand new classroom.


Can you tell where the new addition was added?

OH WHAT FUN.....Art Class!

Several first grade students got to roll up their sleeves and dip their fingers in paint during art class last week. Mrs. Deppe taught students how to use every day objects like bottle caps and legos to stamp a background for a Laurel Burch cat collage that they will be assembling next class.
