Senior signs letter of intent
Congratulations to recent graduate Brian Westover who has signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Mount Vernon Nazarene University (MVNU) next year. In addition to being a three-year letter winner for the Cardinal baseball team, Brian is also a two-year letter winner for the soccer team. He plans to major in exercise science at MVNU.
First-graders create tornadoes
Weather phenomenons can be a little difficult to grasp, but thanks to a recent experiment, first graders now have a better understanding of how tornadoes can form! Our favorite science guy Mr. Claire Zurbuch, aka Mr. Z., visited all classes recently to have them do a “tornado in a bottle” experiment. Students swirled water in adjoining bottles to create a vortex, making it easier for air to come in and water to pour out, which then created a rotating tornado. Students were very excited to see the concept develop in front of them.
Grandparents visit Jordak
Grandparents walked the halls of Jordak Elementary School for the annual Grandparents Day. Students got to show them their classrooms and the building, and shopping at the book fair and plant sale were added bonuses. Families enjoyed breakfast treats and got their pictures taken together. Jordak thanks everyone who participated in this fun event!
