Feeling Fresh
Look good, feel good. That’s the motto ahead of our I PROMISE School students’ spring break as we had another round of Fresh Cuts in the Family Resource Center that saw nearly 100 students receive new haircuts. Thanks to Jermaine for organizing the crew of barbers to come through and for making sure our students are feeling their best for the upcoming Easter weekend. 
Also coming in fresh are our IPS gamers who are taking part in the all new Rocket League gaming tournament. With the goal of creating a fun competition, teachers selected three students per team to compete in an earned, not given opportunity the staff hopes becomes a school tradition.
We love to see our students, partners, and promises soar! 
6th grade students Makayla, Trinity, and Za’Maria from Mrs. Mongold’s digital literacy class designed the competition’s helicopter trophy using the Glowforge app and a laser cutter. We can’t wait to see the team’s gaming skills in action!
And it was exciting to see our 5th graders in action building rockets and launching their creations with the University of Akron’s Akronauts. This hands-on learning exercise with our partners at UA (and captured by WEWS) was a great opportunity for collaboration, peer mentoring, and STEM education in action. As a nod to the partnership, the Akronauts are working on an I PROMISE rocket to enter in the upcoming 2022 Spaceport America Cup. 
 
We love to see our students, partners, and promises soar! 
 
Wishing our entire extended family a happy and healthy Easter holiday.
