On May 16, Lincolnview Elementary held its third annual Art Show fundraiser. The event showcased professionally framed student artworks in a gallery setting. The art show allowed students to share their artistic masterpiece with their parents and community members. The show also raised funds for the Lincolnview Elementary Fine Arts Department that will be used for future art projects. (Lincolnview photo)

What began two years ago as a bright idea and a desire to make the playground more inclusive has grown into a communitywide effort. The Lincolnview Elementary student body welcomed its new “Buddy Bench” home during the annual carnival.

Formed in the wake of the Rachel’s Challenge initiative, sixth grade Agents of Change wanted to bring about a way to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. Anyone who needs someone to play with can sit on the special Buddy Bench, signifying to their peers they wish to be invited to play.  The students began fundraising in an effort to purchase a bench, but aside from a generous initial donation, it was slow going. That’s where Rhonda Longstreth, director of Lincolnview Latchkey, came in. “I am always looking for something fun and educational to do in Latchkey. When I heard about Van Wert Elementary’s project, I thought that would be a great thing for us to do as well!”

So began a year-long enterprise collecting plastic bottle caps to be recycled into plastic lumber and made into a bench. Working with Green Tree Plastics in Evansville, Indiana, this initiative is specifically designed by school children for school children. The cost to produce a bench is $325.00, which was paid for with donations. The students sorted and weighed the items after school until they had 500 pounds of caps!

“It was amazing to see how fast we reached our goal. Families were bringing in huge bags of caps and lids,” said Longstreth. Elementary school counselor Tonia Verville agrees. “Just watching this grow through their hands and seeing their pride and responsibility for this project has been incredible. Not only are they engaged outside of instructional time, they have learned so much about recycling, caring for the earth, and green living. I love that sense of pride in what they have accomplished. I want to especially thank the Lancer families, Shawn Collins, Jesse Taylor, and the Latchkey students for making this dream come true!”

“We are already saving for a second bench,” says Longstreth. With school pride and a desire to change the world, it won’t be long until another blue bench makes its home in Lancer Land!

Fifth graders from Lincolnview Elementary and St. Mary’s Elementary visited JA Biz Town in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on May 4.

The children engaged in hands-on activities in the role of workers and consumers in a fully-interactive simulation of a town, JA Biz Town. Students discovered the importance of working cooperatively within a business and as a community member. They developed several economic skills such as balancing their checkbook after earning an income and making purchases in town. The students gained much knowledge on various careers and an appreciation for how their parents balance professional and personal responsibilities daily.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced, in April, a new conservation effort for Ohio agriculture producers to help combat future declines of honey bees and Monarch butterflies by providing food and habitat sources.

More than 80 percent of the world’s plants need pollinators to survive, including many that provide the food we eat. But many pollinators like honey bees and Monarch butterflies are in trouble. That’s why NRCS works with private landowners to create food and habitat for pollinators on farms and in forests.

NRCS provides technical and financial assistance through its Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to help producers voluntarily implement conservation practices such as planting cover crops, planting milkweed, and planting wildflowers, and native grasses in buffers and areas not in production. IN total, more than 3 dozen NRCS conservation practices provide benefits to pollinators.

Two Lincolnview students, Chayten Overholt and Jaden Youtsey, helped complete a pollinator plot located in Pleasant Township, Van Wert County. They volunteered several hours to plant the following plants: bare rooted apple, wild plum, crabapple, elderberry, and blackberry and raspberry bushes. This plot will help to feed bats, butterflies, and honey bees.
To learn more about EQIP and other technical and financial assistance available through NRCS conservation programs, visit “Get Started with NRCS or local USDA Service Centers”.

As part of the Principles of Engineering course, Taylor Braun (12), Chayten Overholt (11), and Jacob Keysor(10) constructed a hydraulic powered mechanical arm from styrofoam board, tongue depressors, syringes, and other ordinary materials.  The class applied concepts from chemistry (Ideal Gas Laws) and physics (Pascal's Principle) in studying pneumatics and hydraulics.  The mechanical arm can be either a pneumatic or hydraulic device.

Students in Project Lead the Way Pre-Engineering classes took part in a national engineering competition on March 16th at Ohio Northern University.  The contest is called TEAM+S (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, & Science) and is conducted by the Technology Student Association.  The theme of this year’s contest was “Engineering the Environment.”

Students worked together as a group on three parts of the competition.  First, the students researched and submitted an essay prior to the competition day on renewable energy sources that could be viable in the state of Ohio.  Second, the group had 90 minutes to work through 80 multiple choice problem solving questions, 10 each

from 8 “scenarios” that were theme related.  The third part of the contest required the group to design and build a device that “moved” a standing water bottle from a predetermined collection of supplies.  Scoring for the design was based on time required to complete the task and upon the economical use of the supplies.

The students competing included: (Jr/Sr. team) Taylor Braun, Jayden Dickson, Hunter Adams, Keegan Cowan, Wayne Fawbush, Chayten Overholt; (Frsh/Soph team) Jacob Keysor, Kaleb Allenbaugh, Freddie Pfau, Joe Sadowski, and Colton Trenkamp.

The Junior/Senior Team won third in State – Essay and seventh in State – Overall. The Freshman/Sophomore Team won third in State – Overall and 20th in Nation – Overall.

Students in Liz Utz’s third grade class finalized their fraction unit with making fraction people to resemble themselves. Each student made their portrait and then had to find the fraction of each color square used. Students enjoyed finding how many total squares they used along with the fraction of each color.

This show features world-renowned magician Rick Smith Jr. and his team of dancers, jugglers, strongmen and more.  Also appearing in this amazing show are strongman JD Anderson and juggler Billy Matsumoto and many surprise acts.

 Kris Tow and Jill Cockerell co-taught first grade recently and had the opportunity to investigate and learn more about insects. Each student selected their insect and used classroom chrome books and iPads to conduct their research. They created an informative writing piece to share with their classmates along with a visual model. It was a bugtastic time! (Photo submitted.)

The Lincolnview junior high student council came up with the idea to hold a book drive during national Read Across America week. Because of the generosity of the Lincolnview community and friends of the Lincolnview community, the junior high collected a surprising 1150 books! The books were distributed to elementary students at Lincolnview. What an awesome way to spread the love of reading! Thank you to all who donated books to the wonderful cause.

The second and third grade Enrichment students have been mixing the old with the new.

They read Sarah, Plain and Tall, a story from the pioneer times. Then, to show what they learned about the story elements, they first participated in good, old-fashioned dictionary races; then they created a Google slide show on their Chromebooks.
