Honoring all who served, past, present and future.
Teachers came in to collaborate and learn more about teaching with the Arkansas Science Standards. They discovered ways to have students collaborate and come up with consensus models. Modeling in the science classroom is essential!
Today, November 8, we recognize National STEM day. NAESC has some amazing things going on in the world of STEM! We encourage schools and teachers to reach out and discover how you can get your students engaged!
Mrs. Duncan from Highland High School is displaying the 8 Mathematical Practices for her students. We love it!
Principals joined together for an informative day, gathering information on how they can better serve their schools. They also learned about some great events that are upcoming in which students can be involved! Exciting things coming! 🎉
Last week, students at ICC Elementary participated in some STEM learning while having fun with pumpkins!
Family and Consumer Science teachers came together for a day of collaboration. They shared strategies, methods and resources with each other from their programs of study. They also discussed Perkins funding and program approvals. It was a great day of sharing and learning!
Students at Midland Elementary are studying severe weather patterns and how our atmosphere affects the weather we experience. They’re going to create a Public Service Announcement soon to inform the public about a specific severe weather we experience here in Arkansas. They’re putting a lot of work into their presentations and are VERY excited about a visit from @ryanvaughanweather next week! Great work, Midland!
We had an amazing day with this RISE 3-6 crew. We were rocking Day 3 with morphology and etymology activities and even threw in some art… can’t wait to see what Day 4 has in store.
Eagle Mountain Elementary EAST students practicing for the 2021 CodifyThis! Computer Science competition which was rescheduled for March 11th-12th due to snow. Coding these robots requires the application of math with both logical and creative thinking. Well done, EME!
We enjoyed spending the week with our 3-6 RISE participants as we learned vocabulary strategies that are in line with the Science of Reading. We look forward to new learning in November and December!
Ms. Leah Carpenter's third grade science classes recently participated in an engineering design challenge related to their weather-related hazards learning. I love seeing those SEPs in action. Preparing kids for the future! https://youtu.be/De3HESqmraA

It was so good to see so many of our fabulous K-2 Literacy teachers today through our first (of many) RISE Support zoom sessions. We had 6 school districts represented today! We support you and appreciate all of your hard work!
I had the privilege of getting to observe Dr. Butler’s robotics class at Southside Charter High School. Despite having to social distance, students managed to work as teams to build, program, and drive their robots.
