 Oak Ridge Students Sharing with Community

The life skills classroom and autism classroom work together at Oak Ridge Middle School selling coffee/drinks and baked goods to staff on Thursdays. The students are responsible for counting orders, baking, making the drinks, delivering, and collecting/counting the money. The little "business" is called School House Brew.

Recently, the students used some of their School House Brew earnings to make a donation to Camp Courageous, an organization that's close to their hearts. Camp Courageous representative Jeanne Muellerleile also chatted with the students about their favorite experiences at camp.

Congratulations to these industrious Oak Ridge students for their efforts and for giving back to the community!

 Westfield's Dot Day

Westfield students recently celebrated the school’s first Dot Day. The event was all about “making your mark.” Westfield’s students accomplished doing just that in many ways – from wearing dots to reading the book, The Dot.

Every student at Westfield made their mark on the school by creating their own unique dot to leave behind. Using paint, crayons, and markers, the students designed their dots in creative and colorful ways. The dots were displayed throughout the hallways, but will now be combined into one giant dot that will be displayed at the school in an everlasting mark.

The idea for Dot Day came about this fall when several Westfield teachers (Sarah Doyle, Ashley Messerli and Deb Wegmann) attended the ITEC conference and heard Peter H. Reynolds, the keynote speaker author of The Dot. The experience filled our teachers with excitement to come back to Westfield and hold their first Dot Day. And Michael Brandt, Westfield's art teacher, got on board to make the experience even bigger!
