  • Gazette: A bird, a plane? No, a rocket: Eastern Colorado school kids learn STEM from JROTC cadets

    Thick autumn clouds spitting rain were of no interest to 145 elementary students in Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 Wednesday. Their attention was riveted on tiny specks that hovered 200 feet above before cascading to the ground. "It's a good white background to see the rockets - we won't lose them in the glare of the sun," said Principal Sheila Hartley, eyes cast upward. With the help of 13 students from the Aero Club of the Air Force Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps at Falcon High School, 32 youngsters in Miami-Yoder's Rocket Club each pushed a button and launched the Estes model rockets they had built over the past month.

  • FHS Wellness Success Story

    Sometimes it's the little things that count. We are showing students how to choose the healthier choice when it comes to snack bars. No need for chocolate covered bars to fuel your body, pick a nut or fruit based bar instead. We are also watching students gain strength in their core with new balance chairs. Keep an eye out for pictures coming soon of new learning tools that encourage movement in the classroom and the roll out of the test kit of heart monitors for our PE classes. FHS Wellness Team
