Laguna Students Rise To The Occasion - Embrace Science

LAGUNA PUEBLO - On Thursday, Laguna Elementary School students were asked by fifth-grade teacher Amy Arkie, “Who wants to be a scientist when they grow up?” To which almost every student raised their hand.

The school held their own science fair and had every student participate from kindergarten through fifth grade. Each student had to present a project. For kindergarten through second grade students made class projects, but for third to fifth grade students presented individual projects. All together there were over 90 projects.

Principal Holly Gurule confirmed that the school is a community school, therefore, they follow their own schedule. They chose to hold their science fair after spring break to give students and their parents time to collaborate on their projects.

SUPPORT

According to Arkie, the students and their families rose to the occasion. “There was not a low score for any of the fifth-grade students at all,” Arkie said. “A lot of parents support it and said how fun it was to do the project with their child. The majority of parents here value education and it makes our job so much easier. Then there was support of local entities, it was a really nice combination of departments.”

Gurule added that the school has a priority on science technology engineering and math. “We believe in STEM,” Gurule said, “and we really believe in getting kids excited about exploration and inquiry. This year I saw projects that I’ve never seen before. We’re grateful for the volunteers who judged the projects.”

The judges came from offices and departments all over Laguna Pueblo, they spent time judging projects Thursday morning. Wednesday evening was the school’s science night., an open house for families to peruse the projects.

By now they are seasoned student scientists as the school requires the projects to be completed every year, either as a class or as individuals.

Lucas Begaye, a fifth-grade student, was asked what he liked best about the project. “The procedure,” he answered, “the fun of getting materials. Most people think it’s hard, but for me it was an adventure, too. The hardest part was making sure we did it right.”

He was also asked how he liked the fair in general. “It’s great,” he said. “There were no winners or losers, we’re all winners today.”

Begaye’s project focused on liquid density. He explored density by creating a lava lamp that earned him second place among fifth-grade students.

The results that Gurule and the school aimed for were most evident in fifth-grade student Viviana Aragon. She was asked what she liked about the fair. “I like seeing all the projects and the different things people are learning—new things that I wouldn’t have otherwise think of,” she said.

The overall winner of the fair was fourth-grade student Cooper Two Bull for his project, “Got Batteries.” There were other awards for each grade.

CAN’T WAIT

There are more supportive parents waiting in the wings. This year, Amanda Peacock’s student is only in second grade and had a class project in which to participate.

Though Peacock said, “We’re excited to do a project with her next year. It’s fun to see what they come up with on their own, and see them explore and how their minds work.”

MORE SCHOOL STEM

Fourth- and fifth-grade students have also been participating in Science Club with Arkie twice a week. Their current activity is exploring creating and operating rovers with help from STEM students at Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute.

We are an AVID School!

The mission of AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

At LES, we focus on three areas of AVID:

  1. Successful Student:  Teachers, students, and parents work together to identify qualities that make a student successful and we work on exhibiting these qualities in our classrooms and across our school.
  2. Organization:  Students are required to have their AVID Binders and agendas with them each day.  Using our binders and agendas to help students not only manage their materials, but their time and self as well.
  3. WICOR:  Developing critical thinking and deep learning is crucial for 21st century learners.  AVID provides foundational strategies known as WICOR that help students develop these critical thinking and learning skills.  WICOR stands for:
  • Writing
  • Inquiry
  • Collaboration
  • Organization
  • Reading

For more information on AVID, or to see AVID in action, please contact the school.
