  • OPMS Students Become FAA certified Recreational Drone Pilots

    Mr. Gill, OPMS Technology Teacher, offered his 8th grade students an opportunity to take the FAA Recreational Drone Pilot exam. Already, approximately 50 middle school students have become FAA certified Recreational Drone Pilots and more students have pledged to take the exam soon! This means that the students have the basic understanding to safely fly their drones for non-commercial purposes. With the immense access to drones that students have outside of school, it is wonderful that so many students will now have the knowledge of how to conduct safe drone flights when they are flying on their own.

  • Girl Scout Troop Creates Outdoor Classroom at Eggert Elementary

    Former Eggert Elementary students and members of Girl Scout Troop 30517 wanted to give back to the Eggert Elementary Community, so they created an outdoor classroom for students and faculty to enjoy. Troop members cleared a pathway, created a border with old tree limbs, wheelbarrowed eight yards of stone, and constructed bench seating for classrooms to use at the end of the trail outside of Eggert Elementary.

  • Gallons of Change

    During the last week in April, fifth graders at Windom ran a fundraiser called Gallons of Change. It was to raise awareness and funds to build a well in India with an organization called Freshwater Friends. This connects to the science curriculum that teaches kids about the scarcity of freshwater and how we can help those who don't have access to it.  The final science unit that many of the 5th grade classes are studying is about how we can provide freshwater to those in need. Students learn about the scarcity of drinkable water, how to move water from one place to another without a pump, and about systems that can pump water vertically, like modern wells. Students have also learned that over 770 million people around the world do not have access to clean, drinkable water. Freshwater Friends raises awareness about the lack of clean, drinkable water around the world, and they actively dig wells in villages in India with raised funds. This is a great way for the kids to apply what they are learning and have a positive impact in people's lives on the other side of the world! Click here to learn more or make a donation.
