In our authentic learning class, our EDGE students Lee Hikiji and Dayton Morris teamed up with local salon The Mirror Image to create some social media buzz! The two students captured promotional images of products, posted about an open house held at Mirror Image, created makeup tutorials, and helped Mirror Image develop a social media plan to keep business buzzing online. Mirror Image loved the work that these girls did and enjoyed the fresh take on their products. Dayton Morris’s video about Mirabella Beauty (a makeup line sold at Mirror Image) eyeliner even got national recognition from Mirabella. Great job ladies on some fabulous social media boosts!

During Black History Month, we’re learning about and celebrating African American culture, including local heroes who’ve made an impact on our community! John G. Trice (May 12, 1902 – October 8, 1923) was a football player who became the first African American athlete for Iowa State. Trice died due to injuries suffered during a college football game against the University of Minnesota on October 6, 1923. He is the namesake for Jack Trice Stadium, Iowa State's football stadium. The stadium was named Jack Trice Stadium in 1975.

Highlighting Our Boone CSD Mentors!
On January 26, Boone CSD and Lane Trailer Manufacturing Co. were presented with the 2022 Business and Student Engagement Award from the Ames Economic Development Commission. As stated at the award ceremony, “The Boone EDGE program prepares students for post-secondary success and collaborates with area businesses to provide opportunities to students. This past year, Lane Trailer provided welding internships over the past summer for high school students within the Boone EDGE program. These internships are paid for by a grant the Boone EDGE program was able to obtain, and these students have the chance to turn this experience into a full-time job after graduation. One intern from previous years recently accepted a full-time position and was able to help summer interns this year with his expertise.” We are incredibly honored to receive this award alongside one of our valued community partnerships!

Recently, our high school EDGE students visited Iowa Workforce Development to learn about how they create, edit, and produce their podcast “Mission: Employable.” Students learned the background of the podcast, how to find interviewees, how to generate relevant content, how to reach audiences, and explored the recording studio itself. Students had the chance to record themselves in the podcast booth, then see the editing process and how to remove any hiccups that occurred during the recording process. This experience was extremely valuable to our EDGE students, as they have now launched their own podcast, currently focused on the successes of Boone High Alumni.

Students have learned what assertive means and how to assertively and kindly advocate for their needs and wants! Assertiveness is kindly standing up for what makes you happy, safe, and healthy. Students have learned that being assertive is: ➡️ Asking for help when you need it ➡️ Kindly saying no to others ➡️ Asking a friend when you need help Each week, we recognize PreK-1st students for being assertive by allowing them to sit at the Assertive Alligator table!

Student Taylor Beck partnered with Kluss Reflexology out of Boone on a social media campaign! Taylor helped the business ramp up their social media to be more engaging, active, and aesthetically appealing. From this experience, Taylor learned a lot about how to communicate with a small business, how to manage and schedule posts, and what types of posts users engage with more. She did a great job of representing the EDGE program this semester and has done a wonderful job of teaching Kluss Reflexology their next steps for a social media plan.

The Boone Community School District challenges all students to grow their communication, civic and global engagement, self-awareness, life-readiness, resilience, and critical thinking/problem-solving skills. Kindergarten and 1st grade students recently learned the foundational skills of paper engineering, including folding, creasing, cutting, and curving to change a two-dimensional piece of paper into a 3D structure. They used creativity and problem solving to design an object out of a single sheet of paper. Way to go, students! Keep an eye out for more Portrait of a Graduate highlights.

Our 2nd grade students have been developing their Critical Thinking and Problem Solving skills as part of Boone CSD’s Portrait of a Graduate! 2nd graders created parade floats for a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Then, they problem-solved to find a way to attach their float to a robotic device. Next, they were given a parade path and worked together to code their parade float to travel along the designated route. At Boone CSD, we are committed to ensuring students in all grades receive opportunities to grow their communication, civic and global engagement, self-awareness, life-ready, resilience, and critical thinking/problem-solving skills.
