Redhawks, start your engines! Welcome to our 2017-2018 whole school PBL for the year: "Come Race With Us". This unique experience incorporates the racing industry into our K-5 curriculum in reading, math, science, and social studies. We have built this year long program on the heels of our first annual whole school PBL which focused on the aviation Industry and Flight 1549: The Miracle on the Hudson. We are welcoming The Nascar Hall of Fame as a partner/sponsor to our racing year! All of our K-5 students will attend a field trip to THe Nascar Hall of Fame in the winter/spring of the school year. We kicked off the first day of school in style with our racing mascots and Sprint Xfinity Truck Drivers: Chase Cabre and John Hunter Nemechek!
There are many ways you can help bring this amazing experience to life for our students!
Are you looking to build buisness/community partnerships? We are looking for buisnesses/partners in the racing industry to come and speak to our students, read with our students, offer their expertise to our staff and/or students, and monetary sponsors. Please contact Jennifer Caligan at email@example.com to find out more exciting ways we can work together!
- Is your business connected to the racing industry? If so, we are in need of members of the business community to share with our teachers how their services connect to racing and how it connects to our teaching and preparing our students for the future! We are also looking for ways to supplement our teaching with guest speakers (in person or skyping). To introduce some of our lessons, we like to have members of the racing industry pre-record intros to our Problem Based Learning (PBL) scenarios.
- Could your business sponsor one of our Pinewood Derby Cars or Soap Box Derby Cars? We are looking for businesses that would like to have their logo on our cars at race day! If you can submit your contact information, we would like to have our students write letters to you! They will be designing their own advertisement including your name and slogan!
- Could you donate to one of the grants listed on this page? We are currently trying to get four different grants funded to bring this experience alive for our students!
