Inspirational Quote

"The biggest job we have is to teach a [student] how to fail intelligently. We have to train him to experiment over and over and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work."


~Charles F. Kettering (1876-1958) was an American inventor, engineer, businessman, and the holder of 186 patents. He was a founder of Delco, and was head of research at General Motors from 1920 to 1947.

Creative Learning Center News

We Want Your Legos!

Parents, if you have any Legos in your home that you no longer use, please donate them to St. Paul's Creative Learning Center!!! Wondering why Legos are so valuable in school? Here are a few reasons:

  1. Legos provide tools that develop lateral thinking in a fun environment;
  2. Legos teach kids to think in three dimensions;
  3. Legos improve literacy as kids work with instructions;
  4. Legos develop problem-solving skills, organization, and planning by construction;
  5. Legos improve creativity;
  6. Legos enhance communication and critical thinking; and,
  7. Legos boost kids' motor development.

Kindergarten students experimented with STEAM using pumpkins! It was lots of fun! The students were able to explore and build anything that they could think of!

8th Grade

8th grade had the opportunity last week to teach the 4th and 5th grade about the Writing Process. This was a wonderful opportunity for them to get the chance to experience what it would be like to teach others. Some of them were naturals!
