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

Janaea Holleman received the Good News Call today for helping teachers on the recess playground. Janaea is a willing helping hand every single day when we are outside at recess. She happily assists us with getting students lined up and making sure all balls and equipment are picked up. She is a happy helper and a joy to have around. She is a great help and does so without ever being asked. Thank you Janaea for being a willing, joyful, and happy helper! And thanks for being such a great kiddo!

Lizzy Groon was nominated for the Good News Call for giving up a portion of her recess to assist Mrs. Knecht. She was nominated along with Randi Oberbroekling, Lydia Dyk, & McKenzie DeHaan for assisting in the lunchroom, however she was gone when we made the calls; so today, Lizzy made her call. These four girls noticed on their own that no one was staying to assist. They quickly and graciously volunteered to help wash the tables. What makes this Good News Call special is that the girls noticed, without being told, that a staff member needed assistance and they offered to do so. Thank you, ladies, for noticing something that needed to be done, and for offering on your own to assist. Your kindness and thoughtfulness to others IS noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being such AWESOME kiddos!
