Student presentation at Christa McAuliffe Technologie ConferenceInter-Lakes students, Hayden Mangers and Kaleb Knott, helped teachers learn new tech skills at the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference in Manchester, New Hampshire. The two day conference that took place on December 3rd and 4th, is put on each year to highlight the successful technology practice among educators. The boys participated in the Student STEAM showcase which highlights students projects and gives students an opportunity to share their ideas with other teachers, administrators, and technology leaders that attend the conference. The two fourth graders showcased a project they worked on in Social Studies class with their teacher, Mrs. Miller and the technology integrator, Kathleen DeCamp.

Naturalist in the classroomInter-Lakes Elementary School has the pleasure of working in conjunction with Prescott Farm to offer a Naturalist in the classroom. We are lucky to have Jake Newcomb, or as many here warmly call him, JTN (Jake The Naturalist). Mr. Jake has recently been working with 5th graders connecting social studies, literature and natural living. Mr. Reidy and Mr. Jake are helping learners design, revise, and  create a 3 legged stool using only simple tools and their hands. There will be no screws, nails or any other type of fasteners.
