    Eisenhower Wins Battle of the Books

    Elementary and middle schools across the Davenport Community School District gathered at the Eastern Branch Library on Wednesday, March 1, to compete in the grades 4-6 Battle of the Books Competition.  Each year the Iowa Association of School Librarians nominate around 20 book titles for the students to read, and then in March, the students vote to determine which book will win the Children’s Choice Award.  During the Battle of the Books each team had to answer one hundred questions based on the 20 nominated Children’s Choice Books.  Eisenhower Elementary finished first with McKinley Elementary finishing in second place.   The Eisenhower Elementary team will now represent the district at the regional competition on April 1.  The Eisenhower team: Lola B., Elizabeth G., Ava N., Giselle C., and Liana T.  

    The Kindness Challenge

    As the Eisenhower Eagles SOAR into 2017 we invite you to participate in the Kindness Challenge.  Just do one act of kindness each day and your kindness will ripple out into the world.  To get you started we have 28 acts of kindness on a February calendar.  Please help us make 2017 “The Year of Being Kind”.


    Robotic’s Club Wins Judges Award

    Nine Eisenhower students braved the bitterly cold and snowy conditions on Sunday, December 11, to participate in the FIRST LEGO League competition at the Putnam Museum.  The competition consisted of 32 teams from across Eastern Iowa.  This fall, the students committed time to research a topic, work in a cooperative team, and build a robot to accomplish specific missions set forth by the judges.  The students researched ways to prevent animals from colliding with motor vehicles.  They presented this information to a panel of judges by creating a PowerPoint and a Reader’s Theater.  The students, coached by Mr. Specht, included:  Laney C., Shyam D., Liam E., Aislinn F., Emma M., Ryan Hock., Lola B., Mark P., and Anthony G.  The team won the Judges Award, which embodies the spirit and uniqueness of FIRST LEGO League.
