The 360-immersion room prepared 5th-grade science students from Mrs. Genzman's class for their mission to Mars. Students toured our solar system aboard the virtual ISS and rode a virtual roller coaster on Mars. The class later traveled to the Challenger Learning Center in Oregon, Ohio.

Ottawa River Restoration

This past week, the section of the Ottawa River that flows through the Village was cleaned up by the Environmental Eclipse Club. Led by teacher Paul Genzman, the club removed more than 1,000 pieces of trash and debris to help protect the watershed’s ecosystem. The group coordinates its efforts through the Village of Ottawa Hills and Partners for Clean Streams. 

Thursday morning all 5th grade students and teachers took part in the Ottawa River Restoration project by sampling the water, removing invasive species, and learning about the importance of the watershed. Science teacher Lianne Genzman then worked with students in the lab to see what organisms live in the river.
