ACSD celebrating American Education Week November 18-22 ...

Once again, the Allamakee Community School District (ACSD) has made plans to celebrate American Education Week November 18-22. Allamakee Community School District celebrates achievements from staff and students at all levels. Success is evident from elementary concerts and art submissions to high school sporting events and musical events. These public events, while integral to the mission of the school, are only part of the offerings and opportunities. ACSD is a place for diverse opportunities that are worthy of celebrating throughout the year, not just during American Education Week.

The elementary schools are abuzz with constant activity. East Elementary was recently renovated and teachers worked extra hard to prepare classrooms for student learning. One of the many tools that teachers are using is an app called Seesaw that allows students to share what they are learning. It brings the classroom home and allows parents or guardians to see what their student is learning. Ross Geerdes from Allamakee County Conservation is a regular presenter at the elementary schools sharing his wealth of knowledge with students about local wildlife. Teachers also utilize local locations for field trips including Peake Orchards, Waukon City Park and The Driftless Area Visitor and Education Center, to mention only a few.

Pictured in the surrounding photos are examples of the learning activities taking place within the ACSD elementary schools. In the photo below, students in Kelly Liddiard’s second grade classroom at West Elementary are using “M&M® Math” to learn such skills as sorting, graphing and comparing numbers. In the photo at right, one of those second grade students is reading with a student partner from Waukon High School.

In the coming months, The Standard will be printing short articles and pictures of the happenings within ACSD schools. More information can also be found on the ACSD’s online and social media presence. Submitted photos.
