Mrs. Stockton's 7th grade ELA class did a project based on the Collection reading "Pavement Chalk Art". The short media analysis, about the artist Julian Beever, gave students a glimpse of some of Beever's work. His art is known for giving viewers the impression that they are entering a very real, physical place that exists in the drawings. Students were challenged to create chalk drawings that someone can interact with or that give the illusion that they are coming off the page. The project had a lot of positive feedback from the student artists as well as other classes that were able to view the finished projects.
Several eighth grader were discussing the Presidential Election. I thought it would be exciting to incorporate a fun and and hands-on project " A Voting Box”! Our students were very creative. Mr Sheets donated the Voting Ballots to the library. On Tuesday, November the 8th,2016, at 9:00 A.M. , Calvin Coolidge Middle School Library was opened to Students, Staff, and we had special Community Leaders such as, Deputy Middlemas to cast their Ballots. We had a huge turn out of voters!!!!!!!! Hillary Clinton won the majority of vote. Our very own Principal, Mick Swanson, received two votes! Remember:Every Vote Counts!!!!!! -Ms. Laster
On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District.
