News and Announcements
Thornapple Kellogg Schools were well represented with 11 teams at the regional Odyssey of the Mind competition in Wayland last weekend. The district will again be well represented by six teams advancing to the state finals March 14 hosted at TK Schools.
Did you know there are more than 50 flavors of Faygo pop with cotton candy being one of the favorites? Or that Vernor’s Ginger Ale is the oldest soft drink in the country and it started right here in Michigan? Did you know Little Caesar’s Pizza – now a national chain – started in Michigan? Just ask Lee Elementary third graders and they can tell you all kind of fun facts about some of the most famous Michigan-made food products after they took a taste-testing tour of Michigan’s history.
Every student at Lee Elementary School this year will receive a new book they can call all their own thanks to the anonymous efforts of the Lee Book Angel. That's more than 450 books to be donated this year!
TK bragging rights are one the line in the annual Battle of the Buildings Nov. 13. Members from each building within the district will compete in fun (and sometimes goofy) basketball competitions.
Third graders not only got to make their cake and eat it too - they also designed their specialty cake and all its decorations, learned how to read the recipe and baking abbreviations, estimated the cost of making it, and created the edible lesson in art class. “It’s the ultimate STEAM lesson,” said Lee art teacher Kathy Bailey. “This included science, technology, engineering, art and math and then they got to eat it!”
A simple children’s summer lemonade stand by some very young students is showing everyone the true meaning of kindness.
Enjoy our staff video! We look forward to a FUN year here at Lee!
Ryker Stout arrived at Lee Elementary School Wednesday morning dressed for success - with a suit coat, dress pants and shirt and even a tie. He looked the part of a television journalist and hoped it would help him tackle his first assignment delivering the Lee Elementary news.
