News & Notes

Students in Amanda Arlington’s art class at Canyon Creek Elementary School got to create and explore a solar system and rainforest as part of a collaborative project funded by an Educator Initiative Grant (EIG). Arlington wanted to find a way to bring a museum experience to her kindergarten, first, and second grade students to create an art installation with “real” rockets and pollinators.

When Canyon Creek Elementary’s STEM teacher Brian Hostetler applied for an Educator Initiative Grant (EIG), he knew he wanted to help students build a LEGO amusement park AND build their design skills. Over the course of a month, about 200 first and second graders were able to create a LEGO-sized amusement park with rides, concession stands, ticket booths and more. The students used design thinking to create, prototype and perfect their creations – which often led to new and exciting discoveries.

  • "Thank you so much for funding Peak Academies! You are providing EVERY student in our building the opportunity to have experiences they may not otherwise have. On behalf of the staff and the students at Red Hawk Ridge, THANK YOU!"
    *Peak Academies offers these courses rooted in a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to learning to all students at Red Hawk Ridge Elementary School.*
