Tiger Tales Stories from Distance Learning and Beyond | May 2021

Welcome to the May 2021 issue of Tiger Tales! Below you'll find highlights from across District 192 showing what everyday learning looks like for our Tigers.

Continuing Traditions

After missing out last year, Farmington High School was able to host their annual Cabaret performance and this time they included some elementary choirs too!

Farmington Elementary students once again participated in a Wax Museum project - this year outside! Learners practiced research, writing, and public speaking skills.

Akin Road Elementary first graders were able to hold a virtual Grand Day program this year to honor grandparents in our community.

Outdoor Learning

Some Riverview Elementary students were able to explore gardening as the weather has continued to warm over the past month.

Dodge Middle School students also got the gardening bug. Ms. Agerter’s and Ms. Moorman’s Tiger Connections classes spent time mulching and planting flowers at the DMS main entrance.

Farmington Elementary students enjoyed the sunshine during recess.


North Trail Elementary students participated in guided math practice.

Boeckman Middle school students spent some WIN (What I Need) time practicing the strategy game of chess.

"Is it math? Science? Engineering? How about all three together as these young learners design ramps and collect data about distance and speed of marbles!" Mr. Yonker guided Riverview Elementary learners in some exciting science activities this month.

Farmington Elementary fourth graders worked together as they use their creativity to solve problems!

North Trail Elementary fourth graders made delicious looking donuts out of recycled materials, inspired by the American Pop Artist Wayne Thiebaud.
