Root iRobot brings new coding opportunities for students!

Multiple robots are available in the STEM Lab for teacher and student use throughout the year, and we are excited for the new Root iRobot we recently acquired through a Donor's Choose project. This robot offers more advanced coding programs so students can continue to advance their learning. Students are most excited for this robot's unique ability to climb walls and draw pictures on whiteboards. We look forward to seeing our students unlock the full possibilities of this robot!

Jump Rope for Heart

Fowler Grade School will be hosting its annual Jump Rope for Heart event in March during PE classes. 2nd-5th graders kicked off the event in February with a special Heart Health assembly hosted by Mr. Peterson and the American Heart Association. Students learned fun activities, exercises for a healthy heart, and the many reasons to love your heart.
