Zephyr Learning Showcase
Learning that highlights our District and Building-Level Strategic Plans is showcased before regular School Board meetings at our Zephyr Learning Showcase. At the May 26 showcase, two students from Ms. Erika Anderson's second-grade class, Luke Wirtz and Lauren Jackson showcased their class biography project. As a class, the students chose a Wildwood staff member, interviewed the person, and then assembled an illustrated book about the person. The students chose Mr. Dan Albrecht, the custodian at Wildwood Elementary School to interview for their project.

High School and Wildwood Collaboration
Mahtomedi High School (MHS) students in the Field Ecology & Conservation course study how living things including humans, alter and interact with the environment. Students study conservation, ecological interactions, and resource management. Students create lesson plans to apply their learning and inspire younger generations to think about conservation and nature.
During the spring of 2022, the MHS students visited Wildwood Elementary School second-grade students during their Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) specialist class. Field Ecology & Conservation teacher, Mr. Jim Lane, shared this about the collaboration with elementary students, “This collaboration is memorable for all students involved and empowers my students to apply and share their learning in a creative and engaging way.”
The MHS students prepared lessons that were held outside at Wildwood’s outdoor learning classroom and focused on appreciation and conservation of the outdoors. Some of the types of lessons the students used included making books about the outdoors, playing trivia games, and doing quiet activities like having students close their eyes and use their senses to observe nature.
See what the lessons looked like over on our Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ChlBc7bF7yA/
Wildwood STEM teacher, Ms. Julie Comfort, shared this about her students’ experience, “The second graders are always excited to work with the “big kids,” and love the variety of ecology experiences. They hope to be on the teaching end in their high school years.”

Our School
 
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
