    Honors 8th Grade Language Arts Students Host Dinner and Project Presentation

    On Thursday, April 12, 2018 Mrs. Tammy Tunis’s Honors Language Arts students at Smart Intermediate hosted a dinner and project presentation for their parents and family. Students have been working for several weeks on a research project on a topic about the Holocaust or World War II. Each student was given the choice to create a tri-fold presentation board, a Prezi, PowerPoint, movie, create a website, or another creative end product they could demonstrate. Within the project students had requirements they had to meet, such as having a number of facts and pictures. Students were encouraged to demonstrate their own creative abilities with this project as well as using several sources to research their topic. Although the dinner was not a required piece of the project, there were 30 of the 42 students in attendance along with their immediate families. Students were able to show off their creativity and answer questions about their topics. Great job to all these 8th Grade Smarties!

    7th Grade Feed My Starving Children Field Trip

     
     
     On February 27th, a group of 80 7th Graders from Smart Intermediate went on a life-changing field trip. They traveled to Aurora, IL where they spent the day inside a Feed My Starving Children packing plant. Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization that packages and distributes food to people in need located in developing countries.
     
    The 7th Grade Social Studies classes spent weeks studying the reasons why famine occurs in Africa and how it impacts the people experiencing it. This field trip was a way for students to make an impact on someone else’s life across the world.
     
    The students packed 144 boxes of food, which equals 31,104 meals. These meals will be sent to Ghana, Cambodia, Kenya, Djibouti, and the Philippines. The meals packed that day will be enough to feed 85 children for an entire year! As one student climbed back onto the bus, they touched their hand to their chest and said “I feel so good.” Needless to say, this was a very rewarding trip that these students will remember for the rest of their lives.
