Her sister is afraid of the dark.

So she made a light so her sister doesn't have to sleep with the overhead lights on.

Quiet Please

A student interviewed his family.  He discovered that when he played games on the computer he disturbed the rest of the family.  So he built a sound canceling wall.

It's about to get even more fun! If that's possible.

Dempsey and I picked up our Lowes toys (I mean tools).  

We. Are. Makers.  

Thank you again Webster Groves Foundation.  Now we just have to build the cart.

What if we gave students an audience? What would happen to student work?

Journey students spent the day at 4 different elementary schools reading books that they authored.  These books dealt with Lincoln's life.  Students gathered info from class and our field trip to Springfield.  Thanks Mrs. Evans for planning and all the work.

Dewalt yellow is one of my favorite colors.

Dempsey and I spent the morning at Lowes purchasing some tools funded from a mini grant.  Thank you to the Webster Groves Foundation. Without your support none of this would be possible.
