Avon Students participate in the 2nd annual Holiday Tradition Conference

The door to the Distance Learning room at Avon East became a revolving door during St. Francis Universities Holiday Traditions Conference. Online from 7:30am to 3:30pm the students from twelve different classrooms took turns participating in discussions from presenters from around the world.

The students enjoyed time spent with Santa as well as the opportunity to learn how communities from around the world celebrate the holidays. We look forward to participating in this great program again in 2007.

Thanks again St. Francis University

Shipwrecked students perform their chapters with partner schools

Mrs. Friedell’s third grade students from Heritage North participated in a collaborated readers theater of their chapters on their story shipwrecked as part of the Chapter Project with Independence and Fremont. The students took turns performing their chapter and their conclusions. All three of the classes were loaded with props and costumes showing great efforts and pride in their chapters.

Once the stories were completed the students shared their favorite parts from each others performances. The students had great comments and shared some interesting comments. The classes did a great job and all enjoyed the project.
