It was a pleasure to have Adam Sidwell come by and visit River Islands Technology Academy and share his writing experience and thrill of reading with all the students. He also took some time with the success class and talked about his journey to becoming a published author. He didn’t stop there. He took some time to be interviewed by one of our Raptor Roar Contributors, Reed Goodwin, and shared some of the movies he has worked on too. It was an amazing experience for our students to have.

Did you know we now have a garden? What about chickens! Thank you so much to Hale Construction once again for helping our school. Here are a few photos of the first students getting things ready. Also, if you were wondering some of the benefits of having a school garden, then here are just a few. Make sure you come by and take a look when you get a chance. We will keep you posted on the progress as we take this gardening adventure together with our students. Educational Benefits Gardening offers hands-on, experiential learning opportunities in a wide array of disciplines, including the natural and social sciences, math, language arts (e.g., through garden journaling), visual arts (e.g., through garden design and decoration), and nutrition. There is mounting evidence that students who participate in school gardening score significantly higher on standardized science achievement tests. ...
