  • Kindergarten STEM Lesson

    The kindergarteners in Mrs. Kuelbs' class participated in a construction STEM unit. Their goal for the unit was to construct a “school” that withstood the test of wind to stay standing to keep the kids safe inside. The students analyzed different building structures and were able to go look at our new school construction site to come up with questions for the builders. Mr. Forness and Brandon Kraus from Kraus-Anderson Construction came into the classroom to answer questions and also talk about the importance of creating a blue print. The students then made their own blueprints before constructing their models. They had two days to construct their school and then presented it to the class; before they turned the fan on to simulate wind. All of their structures were built to withstand the final test! Click the header for a photo gallery of the students creating their STEM projects.

  • American Crystal Sugar and CoBank Donation

    The $10,000 donation is part of a “Shared Success” matching grant program run by CoBank, which is financial entity based in Greenwood Village, CO specializing in lending services to cooperatives including American Crystal. Under the guidelines of Shared Success program, when American Crystal donates up to $5,000 to a nonprofit organization, CoBank matches that $5,000 amount.

  • Stem Center Renderings

    Architects, STEM Consultants, administration and teachers have been busy collaborating ideas on what our new STEM center will look like at Central Cass. The state of the art design will encompass Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through fun, hands-on experiences where real learning occurs. Click the header for a link to look at a rendering of what our STEM center has the potential to look like. Note; furniture and details will change, but the walls and floor plan will likely stay the same with minor tweaking. To move the screen to look around, click and drag the screen. Pictured is Mr. Forness looking through 3D Binoculars at the rendering presented by Zerr Berg Architects. We have several sets of the binoculars in the main office if you want to see it for yourself in 3D.
