Many community members shared their time and expertise with Plymouth School District students this spring.
Fairview Elementary School
- Many special visitors filled the school for the annual Grandparents Day on April 5!
- Mr. Wentz talked with first-graders about bees. Students got to see the container the queen gets shipped in and try on some beekeeper clothing, and learned a lot about pollination.
- Mr. Ryan of Nourish brought afternoon 4K students a snack, a muffin that included the Harvest of the Month (mushroom) as well as corn and peppers.
Riverview Middle School
- Crystal Thomas and Amber Doughery of the Craverie Chocolate Cafe in Kohler visited Tyler Gruett and Sandy Olig's sixth-grade classes on April 26. They showed students how chocolate was made and brought many samples. The visit was part of an economics unit, so they also talked about what it takes to run a successful business.
Plymouth High School
- PHS student Ethan Kurtz with his mother Jennifer talked with the Culinary Arts 3 class as part of a Food Truck Chef unit about how they set up their business.
- Many volunteers helped with the fifth PHS Reality Check in April. Community members help students navigate through a variety of financial simulations.
