Inside the Classroom: Whispering Forest's Schneiderian Math Run ::..
What do you get when you combine exercise and math multiplication facts? You get the Schneiderian Math Run.
Kenny Schneider’s third grade class at Whispering Forest Elementary is learning math through unique strategies that his students will use in head-to-head competitions against other third grade classes at WFE.
Schneider uses non-traditional teaching methods to engage his students. He even strums his acoustic guitar to smoothly transition from one subject to the next!
Learning math + exercise + competitive attitude = The Schneiderians.
STPPS Superintendent Trey Folse signed a proclamation declaring September 18-22 as "Constitution Week" in the School System. Observed on Monday, September 18, Constitution Day commemorates the September 17, 1787, signing of the United States Constitution.
Members of the Pierre de Mandeville Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) presented Superintendent Folse with pocket Constitutions for STPPS students.
The Daughters of the American Revolution chapters work with the School System in several ways throughout the year, from presenting books of historical interest to school libraries to giving out Citizenship Awards at the end of each school year.
