School Announcements
The teachers of Steekee Elementary have been working hard with community service projects around the area.

International Skype
The 3rd and 4th grade students were able to Skype Mr. Feezell all the way from China. We were able to ask Mr. Feezell questions about their education system and cutlure. We know Mr. Feezell misses us very much, but we hope he is enjoying China!

Science is Kool
4th Graders in Mrs. Lorenz's class studied scientific methodology and data collection through a Kool Aid experiment.  Using data collection and reasoning skills, they "perfected" their formulas and each group submitted a sample for a blind taste test with the Prinicpal and SRO officer.  You are sure to enjoy the pictures of the students as they tasted their own drinks early in the process.

Fifth grade has been learning about cells.  They have been discovering the similarities and differences between plant cells and animal cells.  

The students completed drawings of these two types of cells where they specified each of the main organelles by labeling and coloring.
 
5th Grade
Students learned about character traits. We discussed that good writers include great details in their illustrations and writing.

Parents used those details to decide which selfie and paragraph matches their child's characteristics.
 
Guatemala



Mr. Marvin Feezell from SES, Mrs. Stacey Ridenour from LES, and FLMS student Mark Ridenour joined a team to travel to Guatemala at the end of June to train teachers and help students in an orphanage.  Money raised by Steekee students during the 2013-14 school year purchased school supplies and two wireless tablets to benefit this sister school in Comalapa, Guatemala.  Those items were delivered on the trip and are pictured in the slideshow below.  Director Norma Rodriguez was grateful to the point of tears to Steekee Elementary and Loudon County for their efforts to help her students.  If you scroll down the page you will see pictures of her visit to our school earlier this year to learn about American schools, in the process making a connection with SES students and teachers.  This partnership has allowed our students to make a positive impact on the world by helping others.  We are very proud of our Scouts and all Loudon County students and personnel who serve others in the classrooms, in their communities, and around the world.
