🌨❄️ No snow? No problem! 👍 Even before this week’s snow, the students at Southwest City Early Childhood classes got creative with their winter learning! 📚 The students used shaving cream ☁️ to create a snowy sensory experience on their tables and practiced writing their names, shapes, numbers, and letters in the "snow." Besides being a lot of fun, the activity: ❄️ Provides a unique sensory experience for the students, allowing them to explore and experiment with writing in a different way. ❄️ Helps improve their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. ❄️ Can be a good way for students to practice writing in a fun, low-pressure environment before moving on to more traditional writing tools such as pencils and pens. ➕ Bonus: no cold hands or noses! 👃🥶 Just another way McDonald County Schools are making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! ❤️🖤 #EarlyChildhoodEducation #CreativeLearning 📝 #SensoryLearning 🧒 #SouthwestCityEarlyChildhood #LearningThroughPlay #NoSnowNoProblem #McDonaldCountySchools #MCR1 #WeR1

🎉 What an amazing experience for McDonald County High School business students! 🎉 They were invited to attend the opening of the newest Airship Coffee location in Bentonville before it officially opened to the public. 😲 💡 Airship company trainers are working with the students as they begin to open the Student Chamber Coffee Shop, River Blend Coffee Company, on the Pineville square. ☕ This newest Airship location is in the Ledger building, the first-ever bikeable business building with bicycle access to all six floors! 🚲 The students were also able to tour that building and learn more about co-working spaces.

💪 A friendly competition is paying off in a big way for some McDonald County students. Pineville 7th graders Riley Farris and Brionna Ziemianin are part of a team in Mrs. Sutherland’s technology class competing for donations for their upcoming school carnival. 🎪 Riley has some contacts with a retail analytics company in northwest Arkansas -The Allen Sullivan Company. 📊 He was able to line up a video call with Steve Gohde, one of the company’s owners. Riley and Brionna used the skills learned in Mrs. Sutherland’s class to create and give a presentation talking about Pineville Elementary and some of the school’s technology needs. 🧑💻 Mr. Gohde was so impressed with their presentation and the job both students did while presenting that he donated $5,000 💰 to the school! What a win for the kids and the school! 🎉 🙏We are so thankful to the Allen Sullivan Company for that donation and for Riley and Brionna turning learning into action! ➡️ It’s just another way McDonald County Schools is making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes. ❤️ 🖤 #ApplyWhatYouLearn #TheAllenSullivanCo #MacCountyStrong #PinevilleElementary #PresentationSkills #LearningOfTheFuture
🇺🇲 A hands-on lesson about honor and respect. 🇺🇲 The students in McDonald County High School’s JROTC program played a major role in the ceremony honoring fallen soldier Chris Marion. He’s the McDonald County graduate who died in battle in 2006 while serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq. Marion was remembered with guest speakers, a 21-gun salute, a wreath-laying ceremony, and a dedication of a new sign marking the official naming of the U.S. Army PFC Christopher Lee Marion Highway. The JROTC students helped with all aspects of the event including planning, setup, and tear down. Applying lessons from the classroom to the ceremony grounds. So proud of our students and what they’re doing to show respect and remembrance to a fallen hero. ❤️
🧀 Say Cheese!!! 🧀 😄 Lots of smiles, laughter, and learning in Mrs. Stark’s AP Biology class as these McDonald County High School students made small samples of cheese. 🧑🔬 The student scientists started with milk, added some vinegar, heated it up, added other activators, and then squished out the whey for an often messy and nonedible version of the dairy product! 🤢 🧪 It’s all part of a hands-on lesson about enzymes, proteins, coagulation, chemical reactions, and more! Just another way McDonald County Schools are making a difference in every child, every day, whatever it takes! 🧀 ❤️ 🖤 #WeAreMacCounty #MacCountyStrong #SayCheese #ScienceIsFun #HandsOnLessons
