Friday's School Celebration Submitted by : Principal Jeffrey Hoese, Fulton Elementary School House Day at Fulton Elementary School Our goal for this program is to provide our students opportunities to forge new friendships and relationships beyond their grade level and homerooms. In this system, all K-5 students are sorted into 4 different houses: Anchor House (yellow), Bridge House (green), River House (blue), and Wheel House (orange). Each of these houses has students from every grade level. For our older students, this provides them opportunities to be leaders, good role models, and support younger students. For our younger students, this provides them opportunities to make friendships with older students and learn how to model good behaviors that they see. love our House Days. These days are filled with relationship building, fun activities, and great opportunities for our entire school family to get to know one another better.
CALL FOR PRESENTERS for the upcoming TECH SUMMIT ROE 47 and the LTC are thrilled to host the second Technology Summit on January 19, 2024! For this event, we have planned an engaging station rotation activity for the afternoon. During this time, attendees can spend 10-15 minutes at different stations, learning from educators about specific technologies they use in their classrooms. For instance, one presenter will share her top three ways she utilizes Canva in the classroom. We invite you to join us in spotlighting more educators from our region! We are seeking practical applications that all teachers can utilize, and we encourage you to showcase your skills and talents! These presentations are intended to be informal and focused on sharing two to three top "hacks" or innovative uses of a tool or concept. Educators of all grade levels are welcome to participate!
