What We Fund at the Elementary Schools
Can Do! is pleased to team with Miller Creek School District's ongoing efforts to improve our children's learning experiences with technology. Can Do! pays for the technology needs at all four schools in the District, including instruction, staff development, hardware, software and supplies.
Run the mile, play Gaga Ball and learn to be a good teammate! Children need to move to learn. Regular PE during the school day improves concentration and enhances learning in the classroom. Can Do! provides PE specialists and equipment at all three elementary schools to ensure our children have a positive experience outside of the classroom.
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do! Can Do! provides funds to the elementary schools so our young students start learning about music from kindergarten through second grade. Music instruction includes voice, movement and percussion instruments. Music from around the world and from many cultures is explored and enjoyed.
Adorable self-portraits, vivid still-lifes and playful animals are just a few of the artisitic wonders created by our children in the three elementary schools. Can Do! supports art so all students have a hands-on experience with trained specialists. They enjoy an opportunity for artistic expression in a variety of media.
A garden for kids and by the kids! With the help of committed parents and teachers from Next Generation, our students will receive hands on science lessons bringing learning alive in our elementary gardens. Connections to health and nutrition education will be supported and students will play an active role in the management of the garden.
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Social Emotional Learning will be present in all elementary schools this year in an effort to increase the social emotional foundation for all students. This program along with the Lifeskills program and the Code of Conduct form the foundation of the social emotional program at each elementary site.
Donations to Can Do! helps ensure that all students in our district receive a fair and balanced educational opportunity.
We thank you for your support!
