Plymouth School District students enjoyed a variety of activities this winter, among them:

  • Students in the Global Studies class at Plymouth High School made tie blankets for Project Linus on March 1.
  • Riverview Middle School math students in Jessica Barrington’s classes celebrated Pi Day on March 14 by making pies for a pie contest, creating pi badges, and making pi cupcakes – where each cupcake had a digit of pi on it.
  • Second-graders from Horizon Elementary School visited the LTC-Plymouth Science & Technology Center on March 24 for a variety of hands-on projects under the tutelage of PHS technology education students.
  • Participants in the March 28 Fantastic Friday enjoyed a rescue dog visit, as well as relay races.
  • PHS teacher Jennifer Marten took students Grace Harvey and April Xiong to the World Food Prize Wisconsin Youth Institute at UW-Madison on April 10. Each girl researched and wrote a paper about an issue that affects world food security; April wrote about education in Gambia, and Grade addressed clean water issues in Haiti. They presented their ideas to a roundtable panel and fielded questions about the topic at the event, where they also attended several immersion sessions in the labs of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
