These students traveled to the Milwaukee School of Engineering on September 17 to participate in a special Science Immersion Day that was organized by the Southern Lakes Advanced Learner Network president, Lynn vonHuben. Ms. vonHuben is also the WUSD Advanced Learner Coordinator for our elementary schools. While there, students were challenged to build zip lines and weight bearing boats. They also toured the campus and had an interesting and fun classroom experience learning about building roadways and then were able to observe compression testing cement.

Students in Madame Behrens’s 8th grade French classes welcomed a guest speaker and enjoyed learning about L’Ile Maurice, a French speaking island off the southern coast of Africa. Dr. Praveen Parboteeah grew up on this small island in the Indian Ocean which is known as Mauritius Island in English. French is just one of the three languages that he speaks! His presentation was highly engaging, and students reported that they enjoyed learning about this beautiful island, including its customs, religions, and foods. A big “Merci beaucoup” to Dr. Parboteeah for visiting us!
