"What we hope ever to do with ease, we must first learn to do with diligence."

Chavez Students Learn About Flight!

Chavez students had the opportunity to participate in a unique STEM Education Program offered by IFLY Indoor Skydiving located at Stonebriar Mall in Frisco. This opportunity was funded in part by a grant that was written by teacher Joy Sanchez. 20 students from 3rd, 4th and 5th grade each had the opportunity to earn a spot on the trip. Students were chosen for academic progress, work ethic and daily attendance.

IFLY instructors taught our students about the principles of flight, gravity, wind, velocity and drag. Our students created their own parachutes to learn about these principles. At the end of class students were then trained on skydiving techniques.

I think all students would agree that class participation was the best part of the trip.

TEACHER OF THE WEEK--Mary White- PreK-Teacher

Hi! My name is Mary White. I am extremely honored to be teacher of the week! I work beside so many great teachers here at Chavez. I have taught in LEISD for 14 years. This is my fifth year teaching at Chavez. For the last 13 years I have enjoyed my dream job of teaching preschool. It is wonderful to be a part of the tremendous growth that occurs at this age. My family has been a part of the Little Elm Community for 16 years when we moved from Louisiana where I taught for 6 years. My husband and I have 3 children who keep us very busy. I spend my free time reading, researching for work, watching soccer and spending time with my family. I love our community and the small town feeling, with easy access to big city places.
