We need to ensure our children are receiving the best quality food possible. Locally sourced food made from scratch is proven to fuel the mind for learning. The food served at school could easily be the only balanced meal some students receive for the day. Proper nutrition needs to be taught.
An option for students who are not learning-ready
We have students at our school who are not ready to be in school. It is not developmentally, socially, or emotionally appropriate for them, yet they are thrown into a regular classroom and expected to perform up to the same standards as their peers. We need an option for kindergarteners.
Some learning opportunities that I would like students to experience are: expressive and fine arts, more STEM focused programs, and giving back to the community through partnerships.
Hands on activities
I would like to see students have more opportunities with hands on activities, brain breaks, cultural exchanges, and art.
Field trips and free afterschool activities
I hear about opportunities at Midway for things like science club, or Lego building, or art experiences. I would LOVE to see those things instituted at Shiloh. Some free activities that maybe happen once a week, that would enhance science, math or social studies learning.
