Reece Burket, Oakley DuFrain, and Briggs Veurink spoke on behalf of the second-grade class at the Geddes City Council meeting on Monday, March 8th. Their class would like to add a park bench, life size jenga game, and a fire pit to the Geddes Park. All of the projects were researched and voted on in their PBL (Problem-Based Learning) classroom. Problem-Based Learning is a classroom, designed around Social Studies and Science standards, that looks for problems in the community and incorporates a project around that problem. This class knows that Geddes is short on city workers and a small community of helpers, so they approach the city council yearly with their project and help. They are funded, through Modern Woodman, to pay for some of the materials they need to spruce up the park and materials for their new project. The second-graders will go to Geddes early May, along with some of their parents, to bring the park alive. Mrs. DuFrain and Mrs. Frandsen believe it is a great experience to show how to help others, learn about local government, and many other standards along the way.

The Platte-Geddes Junior High and High School staff have started to create student spotlights for 6th through 12th graders. These spotlights are designed to shed light on the great things that the students are doing. Spotlights can be for anything that staff feels should be highlighted such as working hard in the classrooms, being a great person to others, helping out when needed, making good decisions, and numerous other things. Six Students are chosen each month and are featured on a bulletin board with their own poster. Student Spotlights for February are Sydney Neuman, Kallie Walstad, Kiana Major, Claire Maydew, Jerni Severson, Tristen Petrik
