Fifth grade students spent nearly one and a half quarters working on an Endangered Animal project under the inspirational guidance of art teacher, Debbie Hoerst. Mrs. Hoerst helped students learn about how some postage stamps can be used to benefit a particular cause. Students then designed stamps to help a near extinct or endangered animal of their choice. To ensure that the postage stamps would be long lasting, the students decided to paint them on tiles. Each student researched his or her animal and read their information to create videotaped presentation for the Board. Mrs. Hoerst and two students, Milan Schilling and Jaiden Mason, presented the beautiful tile mural display of postage stamps and the video presentation to Board members at the February 9th Board of Education meeting. Both the fifth grade class and Mrs. Hoerst enjoyed the project so much that Mrs. Hoerst is planning a similar project on outer space for next year.
