Kindergarten students were introduced to iPod learning in art. Mrs. Berhow shared with students the appropriate ways to manipulate the tool and how to access apps for learning. They tried their skills at spin art, drawing apps and had a bit of fun taking photos of themselves and one another. Integrating technology into our school curriculums provides innovative and meaningful ways to promote children's learning. All in all, seeing the engagement and care to help one another understand the iPod and its function was well worth this short experience using a new artistic tool.

Inspiring the Next Generation of Engineers
Students in the after school engineering program at St.Stan's rolled up their sleeves to learn about medical engineering. They had the opportunity for hands-on experience by learning how to properly do sutures on pigs' feet. They watched surgical videos from the Lewiston Vet Clinic, prepared for surgery with hand washing and putting on gloves and then were instructed on the steps to perform surgery on a pig's leg. Teacher, Jane Menke, demonstrated the techniques of suturing an insured animal leg. Learning how to bring parts of the skin back together after a bad incision or a cut, helped them to understand that if not properly handled, infection and scarring could occur. Working with the pig's leg, the students prepared the area for surgery by applying medical sterilization fluids.They then learned how to suture the injury with a square knot,continuous suture,and mattress stiching. During this after school program, all students continue to explore various engineering disciplines and discover what field interests them the most.

The Giving Tree
The poem The Giving Tree by
Shel Silverstein, was read and acted out during school mass at St
Stan's on Friday.. First grade students Abby H.,
, as the tree,
Patrick M. portraying the young boy, top, and Carson R. as the boy who grew older, acted out the reading of the poem. The students illustrated the parable on the joys of giving. They depicted in their presentation how the small things we do can leave such an impact on those who are on the receiving end that it cannot be explained. All the classrooms at St.
Stan's Elementary School present a mass each week of the school year. This learning gives the students teachable moments about public speaking,about the messages of their faith and makes learning about God fun!
