Aspire Students spent their morning playing with the younger students in the Cedar Street Campus building! High school students decorated the hallway for Trick or Treating, organized crafts, and ran several games for the preschool classes. Everyone had a great time seeing all the costumes and taking time to build community across the different grade levels!

ELA juniors and seniors wrapped up their Edgar Allan Poe readings with recreating scenes from their favorite pieces. Pictured are two of the favorites: the scene from "The Tell-Tale Heart" when the narrator confesses, and the scene from "The Fall of the House of Usher" where the sister comes back before the house falls.

Soaking up the last few days of beautiful weather! Aspire Academy students enjoy a daily 'brain break' between 4th and 5th hours. Teachers use the time to connect with students. Both teachers and students enjoy being outside and stretching before the last class of the day. Students from the Journalism class use this time to practice their photography skills.

Aspire Academy Science Alert! Mrs. Genung's science class has been practicing investigation skills. Students collected materials from around the school and were able to use safety equipment while measuring data and documenting their findings. Students were encouraged to work in groups to write down their conclusions after looking at the data collected by each group.

Today, students from the Cedar Street Campus competed in a scavenger hunt called the "Paw Paw Scramble" as a way to get to know the community. This photo is of Mrs. Chandler's team at one of 20 stops in the downtown area. Students were challenged in many areas, such as: creative problem-solving, Paw Paw history and even math! See if you can answer this: Count the number of seats at the Strand Theatre. If the Strand charges $3 per ticket, how much money will the Strand make if 2/3 full? #communityconnections #buildtogetherpaw
