Eastern Michigan University Supports STEM Education
Mr. Arbuckle's STEM students got a cool lesson in 3D printing from Eastern Michigan University Art Professor Jason Ferguson father of 3rd grader Beckett. Mr. Ferguson taught the students how the printers worked and some of the cool designs he has done. We appreciate the time Mr. Ferguson took to share with our students.

 
WOBBLE Chairs Donated
Thanks to a donation from Dynamic Interiors in Jackson Michigan, Katlin Moore's class now has six WOBBLE stools in her George Long Elementary School classroom. Mr. Joe Ellison, owner of Dynamic Interiors, saw Ms. Moore's request on "Donors Choose" on Facebook and offered the donation.
Wobble stools are a flexible seating option for the classroom. They engage the students' core and encourages better posture. It is also a way for students to move/wiggle safely, instead of students rocking back in their chairs, or on traditional stools. This type of movement actually helps students pay attention in a much more subtle way than a therapy ball. 
Thank you Joe Ellison and Dynamic Interiors for your generosity.
