Adair County School Board meeting Thursday night was the
announcement from Supt. Alan Reed that he will retire at the
end of the current year, Dec. 31, 2016.

------------
Adair County Elementary School students and their families
turned out in big numbers Thursday evening, Nov. 17, 2016
for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Night,
the school’s celebration of empirical learning.


“This is a fun night and the highlight is definitely the science
fair, which our students and their families participate in,” says
ACES Principal Steve Burton.  “It’s always good stuff—everyone
coming together to share what they’ve built and their experiments. 
It’s pretty cool to see.”


In addition to the science fair, which was set up in the school
cafeteria, other rooms were converted into makeshift
experimental labs, allowing students to learn about sound waves,
computer coding, physics, percentages and probabilities, drones,
the water cycle, and much more.  One of the more popular and
entertaining exercises, aiming to teach students about weight
distribution, allowed students to stand on open cartons of eggs
without crushing them.  Only a few messy mishaps were observed.


“It’s great to see so many students and parents enjoying
themselves at an event like this,” Burton says.  “These disciplines
– science, technology, engineering, and math – are important, so

we want to instill that interest early on.”


The event was presented by the Adair County Family Resource
Center, Title I, and the ACES Science Dept.
