Fun things are happening in PSD schools! McGraw students celebrated a Crazy Hair Day, Riffenburgh students enjoyed Little Shop of Physics, and FCHS students worked on service learning projects during their Make a Difference Day. Check them out below!
Crazy Hair day was a reward for McGraw Elementary students reaching a goal of showing a certain number of positive attributes that are included in the International Baccalaureate Learning profile. Those IB Learner Profile attributes include being caring, open-minded, an inquirer, balanced, thinking, risk-taker, reflective, knowledgeable, principled, and being a communicator.
Riffenburgh Roadrunners learned about science through hands-on activities facilitated by the Little Shop of Physics, a Colorado State University science outreach program.
More than 200 students worked together to complete service learning projects during a Make a Difference Day party session at Fort Collins High School. The party included students from Integrated Services, Student Council, Peer Counselors, FCCLA, LASA, Live United, and National Honor Society. Participants were encouraged to come in costume to enjoy food, games, and work together to complete service learning projects. Some projects included making valentines to sell to raise money to benefit local non-profit organizations, stuffing handmade Christmas Stockings, making fleece blankets to give to FCHS teen parenting program and grandbuddies at a local nursing home, fleece blankets and toys for cats and dogs at the Larimer County Humane Society, canned food drive for the Larimer County Food Bank, fleece covered pillows for The Open Door Mission Homeless Shelter, “We Care” Toiletry kits for The Open Door Mission, and positive quote bookmarks to be given out at school and public libraries.
