Fourth graders at Elizabeth Eichelberger Elementary School wore brightly colored socks and cheered on Avery Campbell (center) on National Down Syndrome Awareness Day (March 21, 2019.) Avery is Eichelberger fifth grade teacher Dave Campbell's daughter. The socks signify the extra chromosome that people with Down Syndrome usually carry.

Week in Review


These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
instagram Student members and teacher sponsors of Lincoln Elementary School’s Earth Club proudly pose around the bench made entirely out of recycled bottle caps collected by club members. Kindergarten teachers Karyn Fuller, Linda Merdian, and Stacey Mikroulis sponsor the club and spearheaded the project. Student club members spent a year and a half collecting 200 pounds of plastic bottle caps to use for the bench. Green Tree Plastics in Indiana made the bench and it was delivered this spring. The bench will be put outside maybe near the schools’ outdoor classroom, Fuller said.
