CrawlSpace Eviction Improv Group Visits the High School
CLICK HERE to see an improv skit of jousting!
How does improvisation enhance and expand education? The players of Kalamazoo's CrawlSpace Eviction demonstrated how to positively build on another's idea, while thinking "quickly on your feet." Students learned how to positively respond to each other, fostering a supportive environment where creativity thrives! These very types of team building exercises are used in many large tech companies today to build a team atmosphere.
First Graders Visit the Gilmore Car Museum
First graders were able to see and touch motorized vehicles of the past at the Gilmore Car Museum, thanks in part to a GLCS Foundation grant. The Gilmore Car Museum even brought the "Abernathy car," off-display due to repairs the day the students visited, to the school once repairs were complete! Students learned about the evolution of cars, how they changed the way we live, and unique features and stories associated with specific models. It was a great lesson in dreaming big, tenacity and ingenuity.
These events are just more examples of how the GLCS Foundation is working to enhance and expand education at Gull Lake Schools.
