- Eisenhower fifth graders continue to prepare for their Junior Achievement’s BizTown simulation set for late March. Our students completed job applications and practiced their interview skills in an effort to receive a position that would utilize their interests and abilities. Several Eisenhower teachers and staff, Lion Foundation employees, School Administration , and our own superintendent lent their help in giving personalized interviews to each and every one of our 115 students. Now that their jobs have been secured, all will soon be working with their new business teams to complete budgets, loan applications and create multiple advertisements. Without a doubt, it’s a program with curriculum that 5thgraders will remember for years to come. Click here for pictures.
- The Eisenhower Mini Mini Thon was a huge success! It all began on Monday, January 28thwith the “Kick Off” assembly, led by high school Mini-Mini Thon captains, Emma Corbin and Annie Newman. Classrooms participated in “Penny Wars” to raise money. Mr. Kepner’s class raised the most money, earning dodge ball time with Dr. Fauser. Students also participated in Mini Mini Thon Spirit Week which included, Favorite Sports Team Day and Mini Thon Gear Day. 207 students registered and donated money to participate in the activities that took place at Eisenhower on Thursday, February 14th. Eisenhower students raised $9,500.84 for Four Diamonds. Click here to learn about exactly how Eisenhower’s donations will be used.
- Eisenhower Elementary staff and students recently celebrated a milestone with a schoolwide dance party for reaching 12,000 “PAW Print” Tickets! Students receive these tickets for desired behaviors created by the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Team including being helpful to a struggling peer, showing excellence in persevering in academics, exhibiting integrity in the classroom or showing acceptance of diversity. Students can then enter for chances to win individual prizes or experiences but our ultimate goal is for all to work together in making our school the best learning environment possible. 12,000 tickets was certainly an achievement worth dancing for!!

- Eisenhower celebrated Read Across America week with guest readers, read-ins, and fun spirit days! As you walked through the halls, you could see some crazy stripes and hear terrific tongue twisters written and shared by Eisenhower students. We would like to thank members of the school board and the administration for taking time to come and read in our classrooms! We had a great week celebrating reading!
- We continue to prepare for the PSSA tests that will be administered in April. Accommodations are being made for students who need them, test administrators are being scheduled strategically for the accommodations, hallway monitors are being assigned and muffins are being ordered for the morning “PSSA Pep Rally”.
- Report from Christine Hatch about Advancing Science: This year the fourth graders have been experiencing wonderful opportunities through Advancing Science. What is Advancing Science you may ask? Advancing Science is an organization that provides access to science equipment that is above and beyond what we already have at school. It also provides many wonderful hands-on experiences at no cost to the district. Not only do they partner with us by loaning out their equipment, they also have amazing Mobile Educators as well. Plus, they helped plan and run one of our field trips this year to Pinchot Park where students were able to use insect nets, test runoff water and take a nature hike with an experienced guide. These Mobile Educators also helped assist the teachers with engaging classroom activities that match our curriculum and standards. The goal of Advancing Science is to get students involved in problem solving and working with materials to further their science understanding and to help keep science interesting so learners can walk away with a love for science. As a 4th grade team, we have enjoyed these opportunities and appreciate how easy this organization was to work with and getting to work with this amazing, knowledgeable staff.
