Portrait of a Graduate Spotlight

Students of all grade levels at Boone CSD receive opportunities to grow their communication, civic and global engagement, self-awareness, life-ready, resilience, and critical thinking/problem-solving skills.

Recently, 3rd grade students learned that gingerbread houses are a real architectural style that originated in Haiti and are some of the only buildings to remain standing after the massive earthquake that struck in 2010. Students experimented with designing a building that is strong enough to withstand an earthquake using a simulation. This real-world challenge provided a global lens for engineering.

Keep growing those critical thinking and problem-solving skills!
