Out of This World!
Janet Ivey, from the PBS show, Janet’s Planet, visited
with students in grades 3-5 on April 4th!
Janet has won the Regional Emmy Award twelve
times and the Gracie Allen Award five times!!!
love of learning was very apparent as she engaged our
students in an interactive question and answer session
It was amazing to hear the
intelligent questions our students posed and to see the
spark of curiosity for the universe ignited during this
interactive session. All of Janet's Planets
programs combine the three types of learning: cognitive,
affective, and psychomotor along with critical
questioning skills in order to stimulate student
learning in a fun and challenging manner. Janet’s
Planet science curriculum mission is to provide an
important foundation for the development of critical
thinking skills – a key component to a child’s success

current grades, obtain immunization status, learn if
their child had any recorded discipline or attendance
issues throughout the day, check their child’s current
lunch account balance, and even see what their child
purchased in the lunchroom – all before their child
comes home from school.
