High School Assignment Wows First Graders

First graders proudly display their finished ornaments.

First-grader Adam Beard wiggled in his seat while he meticulously painted each of the six pieces of a wooden ornament in bright colors. He stopped to examine each piece making sure no spot was left bare. "This one's mine," he said excitedly, beaming with pride as he handed over the pieces to waiting high school students. Armed with hot glue guns, the older students carefully put the pieces together to form a beautiful 3-D ornament ready for the first-graders to use as their own decorations at home.

Magformers Building Toys Purchased with TEAF Grant

McFall students build together using Magformers.

A car, a garage, a pyramid and something that looks like a merry-go-round are all just a few of the many creations students in Molly Bumstead's McFall Elementary classroom have built using Magformers. Bumstead purchased the building toys thanks to a grant from the Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation. The building toys encourage creativity and early engineering skills. The plastic pieces have magnets so they easily attach to each other and lead to some very creative designs. Thank you TAEF for your generous support of TK Schools. The students LOVE their Magformers!

Kindergarten Student Collects Donations Instead of Birthday Gifts

Joey Graham and his kindergarten classmates at McFall show all the donations he got instead of birthday gifts.

Joey Graham invited friends and family to his sixth birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's, but he made a special request. Instead of gifts for himself, Joey asked guests to bring items to send to families in North Carolina affected by a devastating hurricane. It's an idea he got from his McFall Elementary teacher Jacob Bultema.
