Thornapple Kellogg Schools will send three Odyssey of the Mind teams to the World Competition at Michigan State University in May including one of the teams from Page Elementary! One team from the high school, one from the middle school and one from elementary each earned the right to advance by getting a first or second rating at the state finals Saturday hosted at TK.
Page students began checking out books today for the annual Battle of the Books that takes place now through the end of March. In the next two months, each student is challenged to read and complete at least two book summaries.
Congratulations to Shelby Robinett and Jessie Drenten as the Page Elementary Spelling Bee champion and runner-up.
Two Thornapple Kellogg FIRST Lego Robotics teams are preparing for competition this weekend in Grandville. One of the teams is from Page Elementary and the other from the middle school.
Hundreds of students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade are expected to compete in the annual event that encourages students to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), as well as use their imaginations to solve a problem. They also use team-building, presentation and creativity skills.
What do you want to be when you grow up? That's a question students are asked over and over again as they go through their educational careers.
While many won't make up their mind until high school or college, students at Page Elementary always get a chance to learn about some different career options straight from the professionals who work in the fields every day.
