Second- and Fourth-year German students participated in the “Meet a German” program, sponsored by the Fulbright Association and American Association of Teachers of German. They were able to Zoom with a woman from Germany who is living and working in the US and her son, who lived for a time in the US but who studied and works in Germany. Students heard first-hand about the differences between Germany and the United States as perceived by Germans, as well as how opportunities to travel and study abroad can enrich a person’s life and enhance their career.

✨Lincoln STEM celebrated World Kindness Day!✨ Last week, each classroom made a fleece tie blanket to donate to the Watertown Police Department to use as needed. Each grade level also wrote a thank you card to either the Watertown WI Police Department, Watertown Fire Department, or the Watertown Public Library. On Friday morning, students in the 2/3 classrooms walked to the police department to deliver the blankets and cards. Then, they walked to the Watertown Public Library to say "thank you" to the librarians, and their last stop was to visit the residents at Johnson Arms to spread some kindness to them. The Lincoln STEM students loved this service project and loved spreading kindness at school and throughout the community! 💞 A BIG shout-out to Jo-Ann Fabrics for donating the blanket materials so we could spread some kindness in the community!! #WatertownWay #WorldKindnessDay

On Veterans Day, Mrs. Beine’s music students at Lincoln and Schurz were able to zoom with a United States Veteran to share their thanks for his service. Gunnery Sergeant Lawrence Hollister is a retired Marine Veteran who served for 20 years. Part of his time with the Marines was spent serving in the Marine Band. In addition to sharing their thanks, students were also able to ask Gunnery Sergeant Hollister what it is like to be a musician in the Marine Band. Gunnery Sergeant Hollister encouraged our young musicians to work hard and persevere through the challenges of learning to play an instrument. #WatertownWay

Last Friday was the second day of the National FFA Convention. The day's Opening Ceremonies started with key note speaker, Courtenay Dehoff, who talked about striving for great things and adapting when plans change. After that, students were able to explore the agriscience fair posters and Hall of States, learning about agriculture around the country. Then, students attended the second general session where #WatertownWay's very own Brandon Boyd and Ethan Johnson took 2nd place overall in their division for the Agriscience Fair! 🥈 It was a very exciting day and a great achievement for the Watertown FFA! #FFA21 #WatertownFFA
