Crete fifth graders participated in a STEM Parents’ Night on Thursday, December 15th. STEM, a new exploratory class, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. During the evening, the students were able to show their parents the projects they completed in their first semester class. Based on Wearable Technology, and in conjunction with UNL, the students designed projects using electrical circuits made of copper tape. The final project involved sewing a stuffed toy “monster”, which had eyes that light up, using circuits made of conductible thread, a battery, and LED lights.
Students who wish to continue with other projects in Cardinal Crew need to turn in their forms to Mrs. Drevo.

Congratulations to Crete Schools Special Programs and Smithfield-Farmland for another successful completion of a Nebraska Workforce Training Grant. The grant is a partnership between Smithfield-Farmland, the Nebraska Department of Labor (NEDOL), and Special Programs with costs shared between Smithfield and NEDOL. On December 22nd, Smithfield presented Crete Schools with a check for $11,520 dollars for the grant cycle that ended in June.
The purpose of the grant is to improve the English and educational skills of Smithfield employees in order to encourage GED attainment and increase in-house career advancement. Each year, approximately 100 Smithfield employees attended one or more of the Adult Education classes provided by CPS Special Programs where the language and educational skills they obtain help lead to promotions and even GED attainment for those who have not completed a high school education. This partnership is entering its seventh year and we are excited to continue collaborating with NEDOL and Smithfield-Farmland to help grow our local workforce for years to come!

What do first graders do for the last week of school? We take a trip to the North Pole on the Polar Express. Well, not really, but it is just as much fun! First graders will enjoy activities in math, reading, and writing as we discover the adventures of the train ride, and the first gift of Christmas. On the last day before the holiday, students can wear pajamas to school. We will watch the Polar Express as we sip hot chocolate and eat our snacks. What a great way to speed the last day of school!read more
