We had a celebration today with many visitors from the state, district and the Imagine Nation company. Our school was named a Beacon Award winner for Imagine Learning Language & Literacy. Beacon Award winners are recognized for excellence in their partnership, innovative implementation, and good citizenship and outstanding usage of an Imagine Learning product during the school year. Our school was number 3 out of all of the K-3 schools using Imagine Learning Language & Literacy in the state of Utah! We were recognized for above-and-beyond enthusiasm and innovative use of Imagine Learning. We are so grateful for Imagine Learning and encourage all k-3 students to use it at school and at home.
Ms. Stone's 5th Grade students created some amazing Kachina dolls!
Look what just came in!
As we look to the future here at Cook Elementary, we wanted to add to the STEM experience for our students.
We received an Innovative School Grant from the Davis Education Foundation in the amount of $2500 for robotics, made possible by a generous donation from KIHOMAC.
Along with matching funds provided through our Cookie Dough fund raiser, we were able to purchase:
56 Checkerboards (Table Top Coding)
38 Ozobots 2.0
14 Ozobot EVO
24 Spehro SPRK+
Each grade level will have a kit including a portion of these tools.
Our goal with these cool tools is to teach students coding, creativity, persistence, and that robots only do what we tell them to. We will use a variety of No Tech, Low Tech, and High Tech lessons to make this happen
If you have an interest in this process and would like to be involved, please let Mr. King know!
Thanks to the supportive community, the great teachers here at Cook, The Davis Education Foundation, and KIHOMAC!
