The CRES STEAM program made the Lakeland News last week for the Golden Apple segment. 5th grade students used Micro:bits to create automated watering systems to grow microgreens. They coded their system to sense soil moisture and water their plant as needed. Students researched their selected microgreen to learn how to code their system to produce the ideal growing conditions to successfully grow their plants. https://t.co/RcZH9NOItq

S.A.L.T. students put on "We Are Silent" which took place on Tuesday, January 17th. The purpose of "We Are Silent" is to bring awareness to issues that may have caused others to lose their voice, sense of agency, or control in a situation. Students paid $1 to participate. Causes that students chose to stay silent for included mental health, human trafficking, child abuse, sexual assault, and equal rights. Fifty-six students participated; by the end of the day only ten students remained silent for the entire school day. Staying silent, even for part of the day, was a good reminder to students on the importance of being able to use your voice and having a say. Proceeds from Tuesday's "We Are Silent" event are being donated to the CRMC Care Center.
What was your favorite after school snack?
