Fifth-graders complete public service announcements

Assignment focuses on keeping Earth clean

(Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015)

Technology, conservation, persuasion. All of these topics were hit upon during a recent fifth-grade assignment.

According to Jenna Johnson, fifth-grade teacher, all fifth-graders had to create a public service announcement using iMovie to persuade viewers to keep Earth beautiful by keeping it clean.

She said students walked around Silver Lake to take photos using iPads. After students collected their photos, they transferred them to laptops where students spent several days creating their iMovies.

The following videos are the top three as voted on by the fifth-grade class. Congratulations to Mariah Farmer, Troy Heiman, and Trinity Gifford.









Bank continues to attract new customers

This is the third year for the student-run Golden Eagle Bank. The first year the bank started out with 150 accounts, last year they reached 178, and they are currently at 190.

They have a goal of reaching 225 accounts and over $60,000 saved in the bank. To achieve this goal, the bank is doing several promotions throughout the year. Most recently, they are giving out free cash for one of their promotions. It is a $5 for $5 promotion and the bank could not do this without the support from their donors.

Bank Director Loren Ziegler said The Golden Eagle Bank is much appreciative for all of the assistance provided to carry out their objectives. Company donors include the following:

Mark’s Overhead Door Service – Mark Burdiek

Window Design Company – Rod Roberson

North Topeka Vision Center – Lance Eisenbarth
