Recently, the District closed out its reporting requirements for the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Initiative Grant  sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. Teacher Kristen Vitkauskas and her students took a leading role in this project successfully incorporating its elements into the teacher's environment science courses. The project opened the door to increased collaboration between Ms. Vitkauskas and HS/MS Technology Education Teachers, Chris Brown and Josh Grozier. These two teachers are now incorporating GPS/GIS technology into their curriculum which includes the new Middle School STEM elective course. 
As part of its final report, the District included a video produced by senior students Brady Petrovich and Connor Houseknecht. The talented students are current members of Ms. Vitkauskas' Ecology course and both have a strong background in multimedia production. You can view the students' fine work by clicking on the above photo.
