The challenge for Riddle Elementary is to get more active. Students will be tracking their steps during PE and other times throughout the school day. If they achieve 27,280 miles by the end of April, they will earn a rock-climbing wall for the gym!

This mural project at Riddle Elementary School began this first semester of 2021 and finished up just before Christmas break. Students in grades fourth and fifth helped paint this mural. Pictured are the students that helped on this project and were available to be in the group picture. The concept came from talks between art teacher Mr. Niemerg and students in Mrs. Simpson's multiage class. The challenge thinking of the image concept came from trying to use these colorful, stylized fish while including a short text. We wanted less text in this mural but wanted it to connect to the teachings of, the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey. Mrs. Simpson's students decided that "Be Authentic" was the perfect fit to simplify and combine the 7 habits.

Riddle Elementary is excited to partner with Douglas Hart Nature Center to revitalize our arboretum! We worked with Douglas Hart to receive a grant that will allow teachers and students to create new signs and new programs for the community to enjoy. Douglas Hart staff will provide training to ROE District 11 teachers on the national curriculum on using an outdoor classroom space. This is an important project for us all as former Riddle teachers Nancy Brachbill and Ron Ghere started the arboretum at Riddle and we want to see this wonderful asset continue for years to come!

During the last week of October, students in Kindergarten learned about planning, which is part of the engineering design process. All students listened to "I Need My Monster" by Amanda Noll, then designed a monster they would like to have under their bed, if they could choose. Mrs. Drake, STEAM instructor at RES, partnered with Jenny Mayhew to create their designs. Mrs. Mayhew created their monsters by using sublimation and sewing techniques. Each RES Kindergarten student received a pillow which had their very own design located on the front of it! This helped the Kindergarten students experience their creations becoming a finished product, which is a concept of STEAM. All of Kindergarten thanked Jenny for her participation in this project. Pictured are Mrs. Kimery's class with their pillows and Mrs. Drake.

Riddle student leaders are very excited to have completed their very first issue of the Riddle Reporter! Kole Rabe, Chloe Ervin, Addison Perkins, Annalie Wang and Rosemary Cook meet twice a week for a working lunch. These students designated their own roles within the newspaper (chief editor, photographer, interviewer, and habit highlighter) based on their interests and strengths. Even though they all have their own roles, they do a great job synergizing and giving helpful feedback to each other.
