Students in Mrs. Susan Eckenrode's second grade class got to work on a project this week with new Lego kits funded by an $800 Innovative Idea Grant from the Rockingham Educational Foundation, Inc. Students worked in groups of three to come up with a story, make a Lego design, and then using an iPad, take a picture of the design and type their story on the "Lego Story Starter" app. Great things are happening at JWES, and this is but one example. Thanks to Mrs. Erin Branner (pictured lower right), RCPS ITRT, for helping out with the project.
