Monticello Elementary Academic Team has remarkable season Monticello Elementary Academic Team

It has been difficult enough to master virtual, hybrid, limited in-person study schedules this past school year, so to have put together an extra-curricular academic team who saw considerable success is pretty amazing. Even though the odds were against it, a determined coach and five amazing fourth and fifth graders rallied to make impressive strides through the chain of mind boggling tests offered by the Kentucky Association for Academic Competition. Academic Team competition is a tough challenge for any student under normal conditions, so just to participate in the 2021 season is a tribute to these students

Bell Elementary Kids Kamp educational and fun Kids Kamp group photo

About a hundred first and second graders participated in Kids Kamp, a spring break learning adventure held at Bell Elementary. The children were provided transportation and served breakfast and lunch inside their classrooms at the fun event. The schedule was filled with kid-friendly sessions including everything from Superhero Science where they built a boat out of clay and placed miniature superhero figures inside to see if it would float to looking for their site words on a safari hunt and writing them in shaving cream. Students were introduced to making 3D pictures on the computer while learning to use the mouse (since they normally tap on the screens of the white boards or ipads). They used legos, cubes and building pieces to make miniature birdhouses and structures in the engineer/architect math class. Frisbee golf, water balloons and basketball were part of the PE sessions. They proudly wore their tie dyed t-shirts on the final fourth day.
