Mrs. Schumacher's 1st Grade Classroom
...sharing one of my favorite projects of the year...1st grader's read and researched an animal of their choice. We covered numerous 1st Grade standards with this report. We learned how to research, how to write a rough draft, how to compose a written report, how to present to an audience and how to listen to others speak in front of a group of peers all while having fun and cheering on our classmates.
It is hard to believe another school year has gone by so fast! The 8th grade promortion ceremony will be held Wednesday, May 25th. There have been some changes made to the ceremony so please read the 8th Grade Promotion Information Flyer and let us know if you have any questions.
Demographic Study (The Statistical Study of Populations)
I have been at Elder Grove for 15 years. During this time I have seen Elder Grove grow from just over 300 students to its present population of 565 students. We project our student population to be 585 students next year. Fifteen years ago most of our students came from farms or houses spread throughout our rural community. Today, most of our students come from suburban communities with only a few coming from farms. Through statistical analysis, demographic studies can project changes in population. With our rapidly growing student population, the board followed my recommendation to do such a study to determine what the growth of our school district will probably be in 5 years, 10 years and 15 years.
The Elder Grove Demographic Study information guides us in the planning for our future. To review the results of our study click on Elder Grove Demographic Study
