Students at the Freeland Learning Center learn all about Cascarones in their Spanish class. Cascarones are eggs filled with confetti. The cascarones are a part of an Easter tradition from Mexico. People break cascarones over the heads of their family and friends on Easter. Cascarones bring good luck! We wish you lots of good luck Senora Zwerk!

Macy K. one of the first graders in Mrs. Miller’s class was drawn as the winner of a gift card for the Barton Woods kindness challenge. Instead of using the gift card for herself, she told her dad that she wanted to use it to buy her class a pizza party. What a great example of spreading KINDNESS!

Did you know that March 21st was World Down Syndrome Day? It is a day to celebrate and advocate for people with Down Syndrome. The date of 3/21 represents the genetic makeup of down syndrome - three copies of chromosome 21, instead of two. Many staff and students “rocked” their mismatched socks to celebrate the day!

This week, Freeland Learning Center is highlighting one of our 1st grade teachers, Mrs. Gwen Neering. Mrs. Neering is in her 4th year teaching in Freeland and in her 23rd year in education. She is always creating hands-on activities for the students to enhance their learning experiences as she is committed to engaging all types of learners in her lessons. She also inspires students to be kind to others and those serving or those in need in their community by reaching out to them with creative ways to show their appreciation and support. When asked what she finds most rewarding about her position, Mrs. Neering said, “The most rewarding part of my job is seeing all of the first grade students’ smiling faces walking through my door every morning. First graders are amazing little people. They love learning and sharing what they know. It makes my heart happy to see the excitement in their eyes as we build the foundation for success for the school years to come.” Mrs. Neering also shared that Freeland is an amazing place to work. Freeland parents are very supportive and actively involved in the educational process of their child. It is exciting to teach in a community where education is the top priority of all members within the district and in the community. I am very proud to have been chosen to be a part of the Freeland Community School District team. Thank you Mrs. Neering for your dedication to the students and families of the Freeland Learning Center and for all you do for the Freeland Community School District.
