Thank you for supporting the PTA Reflections Contest!
Congratulations to the following students:
We had a wonderful Art Night! The students displayed some outstanding art projects that reflected the theme, "The Future is Within Reach!" Special thanks to Kathy and Dean Shelton, Judy Hooper, the PTA, and the faculty and staff for their support and vision. The Art Night was a great success!
Mrs. Kroeger received a grant from the Davis Education Foundation to enhance her class STEM program! The students will be completing circuits, programming video games (and they can invite friends to play the games they create!), learning basic coding skills, solving brain puzzles, and stretching their engineering skills all while learning to work in small cooperative groups and applying their math and science skills. Congratulations, Mrs. Kroeger!! Thank you, Davis Education Foundation! Have fun learning and exploring, second grade students!
The Davis Education Foundation gave Mrs. Strawn a grant to enhance the Kindergarten STEM program. They received a mix of Magnetix and Marbleworks to help the students build, construct, and perform different tasks. Congratulations, Mrs. Strawn! Have fun learning and exploring, kindergarten students!!
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 Sphero 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!
