Teacher Appreciation
Jefferson students have been taking advantage of our beautiful weather to head down to Cherry Creek for some hands-on learning, led by Mr. Chuck and Mr. McClintock, with the assistance of our school's STEM Ambassadors. Students have previously prepared by studying macroinvertebrates and simulating exploration of the creek. Now, they are actually at Cherry Creek, finding and identifying macroinvertebrates...FOR REAL! How cool is THAT?! ​ Photos provided by Ms. Shubhra. ​ #ExperienceWCS #WCSJeffersonSTEM

Jefferson's "Citizens of the Month" for April had the perfect May day to throw in a line on the canal at The Village at Winona. Pleased smiles (and photographic evidence) suggest that fish were indeed caught! ​ Photo credits: Mike Baker #ExperienceWCS #WCSJeffersonSTEM

For the second year in a row, the Jefferson Library has enjoyed hosting an aquarium of local fish from Lilly Center for Lakes and Streams. But just as our school year is beginning to wind down, so too is that of Grace College. Many of the student workers will be preparing to leave campus soon, so one of their tasks in April is to make the rounds in the community to bring all of the aquariums and their fishy residents back to Lilly Center. ​ Jefferson students thoroughly enjoyed the aquarium this school year and are anxiously asking if we will have another next year! (We already submitted our application!) We love how invested our Spartans are in this fascinating and enriching experience. ​ #ExperienceWCS #WCSJeffersonSTEM
