During a recent student assembly, David Brewer Elementary's Shelly Hiegert was presented with the KScharacter.org's Champion of Character Award. The Champions of Character award provides recognition for individuals that have taken the lead within their school to implement social and emotional character standards. This includes creating a caring school community, engaging families and community members as partners in character-building efforts, fostering self-motivation, and implementing meaningful and challenging academic curriculum that respects all learners, develops character, and helps students succeed. Congratulations to Mrs. Hiegert on receiving this well-deserved honor.

Recently, fifth graders in April Lutz's class at David Brewer have been learning about Force and Motion. To understand the difference between potential energy and kinetic energy, they experimented with rubber bands and the distance they traveled when stretched at different lengths. Students learned that the amount of potential energy an object has is related to its kinetic energy. The more potential energy, the more kinetic energy.
Students in Jodie Brice's Kindergarten class at David Brewer are learning the concept of more or fewer. They had fun rolling dice and snapping cubes together to compare which classmate had more and fewer each time.
