NORTHEAST SHINING STARS Weekly Shout-Outs
OUR SHINING STARS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 23rd…
Mr. Fox, 4th Grade Teacher
Congratulations to Mr. Fox for winning the 2022 Green Difference Award for STEM and the Future of Sustainability. He is being recognized nationally by Project Green Schools for his integration of lessons on the environment and sustainability in the classroom.
Students in Mr. Fox’s class did weekly presentations on the environment and sustainability which gave them lots of practice in using Google Slides and public speaking. Some class lessons included learning about carbon footprints, Mono Lake ecosystem, and human impact on the environment. Students also wrote poems on the subject of sustainability, and they created PSAs for Earth Week on the 5 R’s. Mr. Fox also encouraged his students to make videos about helping the environment with such actions as neighborhood clean-ups, and showing how to reduce waste with composting, conserving water, and electricity.
Thank you Mr. Fox for being our Northeast Shining Star!
