End of Week Fun!

Another busy week and we’re excited to share it with you. This is what’s been happening at Mile High Academy…

Can CollectingIMG_1002

Porter Adventist Hospital asked Mile High Academy to join them in collecting cans to stock the shelves of ACS. Walking the halls you may have seen decorated boxes sitting outside each classroom, these were for generous parents, students, faculty and staff to fill. After counting today, MHA students had collected more than 500 cans for good! We love our partnerships, especially when we’re all working together to help.

1st Grade Goes to Fire Department and 4th to Cave of the Winds

Field trips are always the highlight of the week for kids.  This week two classes took their classroom learning outside.  First grade went to visit a local fire department, learning all about what our fire fighters do daily and how we can help, too.

Fourth grade has been studying land formations in class.  Yesterday, they took their classroom knowledge out into the real world by visiting Cave of the Winds.  This underground exploration gave the kids a real view of what an amazing world we live in.

5th Grade Social Studies ProjectIMG_0964

Mrs. Reeder has been teaching her students all about native cultures in her 5th grade social studies class.  Instead of a standard paper and pencil test, she told the students they had to incorporate all their learning into a 3D project.  Impressive drawings, 3D structures and even some miniature animals made it on to these impressive examples of how testing can be outside the box.  See all the pics in our Photo Gallery.

Preschool and 4th Grade Thanksgiving Feast

Preschool and Fourth grade have more than just yummy food to be thankful for this year.  Today, while feasting on traditional Thanksgiving dishes, Mrs. Cress announced to the classes IMG_1021that they had raised over $1000 at Fall Festival, half of which will make its way to the Philippines in the way of school supplies and much needed items for children in need.  We love when teachers get creative with serving.  Thank you Mrs. Cress and Mrs. Walker for making a difference in lives here and far away.

Check out our website often for news and stories about what our students, faculty and staff are doing.

Have a great Thanksgiving Break!
