Poly Drivers: STEM takes Poly by storm

This spring, over 60 parent, teacher and community volunteers came together to host our first Poly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Day. On a sunny April day, 115 kids learned about local bird tracking, soil composition, bugs found in our area, technology in our own library and robotics. We watched in awe as the LifeFlight Medical Team landed their helicopter on our playground, stayed the day to share their knowledge, and took off as parents arrived for their students. What a day, what a school and what a great group of people making the day happen. Thanks to all!

Special thanks to school nurses Melissa Archilla and Debbie Davis. And thank you to parent volunteers Caroline Chviliek, Robyn Willett, Amber Erlenbusch, and Jon and Jessica Peel.

Poly Drivers: Barnes & Noble Book Fair Fun and Funds

The November Barnes & Noble Book Fair raised about $3,500, of which Poly Drive will receive about 20 percent back. An additional $200 was raised through the craft sales. The funds will go toward the Poly Drive library and the 6th Grade Fund. Sixth graders took the helm in running the events and entertaining guests during the book fair.

Thanks to all who were involved in this successful event and all who supported it.

Poly Drivers: Vision screening thank you

The PTA-sponsored vision screening went flawlessly thanks to the help of the following Poly Drive volunteers: Samantha Duncan, Robyn Willett, Tanya Dahlberg, Amber Erlenbusch, Julie Lien, Caroline Chvilicek and Cindy Stubbs.

Students kindergarten, first through third grades, and fifth grade had their vision screened by school district nurses on Sept. 23.

Thank you for giving the gift of your time to our students and the nurses.

Poly Drivers – Talent show shines

A packed house enjoyed the many talents of Poly Drive students during the Talent Show on Feb. 27 at Lewis and Clark Middle School. Following a dinner catered by Poly Food Basket and homemade cookies, families enjoyed student artwork displays. The hard work of many Poly Drive teachers, staff, PTA members and former students, as well as community support from Rimrock Foundation and Shane Fairbanks, made for a memorable evening.
