Kruse Accelerated Math Class

The Kruse 5th grade Accelerated Math class just completed their scale model project where they scaled up the AT-ST land-walker from Star Wars. The students first made the little version (the little blue one pictured between the big one’s feet), calculated the dimensions for a scaled up version, measured, drew, and created the scaled-up components. Then they finally assembled it. “May the     f-ORE-ce be with you!”

Kruse’s Student Council is running a “Pennies for Pooches” Drive for the Animal Welfare League. The classroom with the largest donation will be invited to an appreciation party courtesy of the League. Student Council just completed their “Pennies for Patients” drive for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with $1,422 in donations. Mrs. Campbell’s first grade class raised the most donations and will receive an Olive Garden lunch. “Student Council has worked hard for both fundraisers including making signs and videos to highlight both charities,” said Marifran Henry, student council co-sponsor. They have also sponsored a food drive for the Orland Township Food Pantry and a holiday gift-giving tree for families in need.

“I am really proud of our students’ efforts, and I appreciate the support of our families," Kruse Principal Carey Radde said. "Student Council is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn how to give back to their community."
