Thank you to everyone that made our Betterment Day possible. Enjoy the following video showing some of the groups' projects.
During the 2017-2018 school year, the 8th grade Social Studies classes were honored to have six gentlemen volunteer to serve as our Adopted Veterans. Joe Dodd, Marvin Ohlrich, Ben Beegle, John Seidel, Josh Titus, and Wes Luther visited with the students about their military experiences, attended the school's Veterans' Day Program as special guests, and were recognized throughout the school year with cards and small gifts . As a final gesture of gratitude each student wrote letters to the veterans. These letters and some patriotic yard ornaments were taken to the Veterans' Service Office for them. Please remember the sacrifices made and take the time to thank veterans you meet. We live in the home of the free because of the brave!

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 was an exciting day for the 7th grade Social Studies students at Ainsworth Community Schools! Renae Hunt from Humanities Nebraska came to school in costume and presented a program on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Renae discussed four valuable members of the expedition who were not paid for their contributions. She discussed and told stories of Sacagawea (a Native American woman), Seaman (the Newfoundland dog), York (the only African American on the expedition), and Pomp (Sacagawea's baby son). This presentation took us beyond the information in our text books and provided the students with a more complete understanding of the Lewis and Clark expedition. We are thankful to have speakers like Renae come to our school and share their knowledge.

The 7th Grade Social Studies students have been learning about the US Constitution and government. They recently completed a classroom competition consisting of 163 questions covering the preamble, articles, amendments, vocabulary, government officials, and history leading up to the writing of the Constitution. The students pushed themselves and studied hard to learn as much information as they could before competing. The results of the competition revealed that the top 6 Constitution Experts in 7th grade are: Dakota S., Corbin S., Emma S., Saylen Y., Ethan F., and Briley N. Congratulations to these students for putting forth the effort they did to learn so much!
