Third grade students at Stamm School have studied the layers of soil.
They learned the name of each layer and what it is made
up of. They then made the different layers of soil using food products. The students had to decide
which food product best
represents each layer.
Finally students were able to eat the models after completing them,
which was their favorite part of the lesson.

Atkinson Elementary School Students Say, “Stop Bullying!”
Fremont City Schools provides several training opportunities for our students in the area of Bullying Prevention.
There are multiple programs that work together to help our students and staff recognize the signs of bullying and identify
ways to help each other and be kind to one another.
Second Step: Second Step programming runs in Kindergarten through eighth grade and walks students though lessons
to promote and strengthen social and academic success. Building counselors work with the classroom teachers to
deliver weekly lessons in Kindergarten classes through the Second Step curriculum and provide situation appropriate
lessons in grades 1-5 depending on the needs of the students or classrooms. Sixth grade students work through weekly
lessons using the Second Step Middle School curriculum while students in grades 7 and 8 work through situation appropriate
lessons as needed by the students. At the middle school level, counselors also provide anti-bullying lessons
from “Let’s Get Real” curriculum to work through situations with students as they arise. The elementary counselors
are also utilizing the Second Step Bullying Prevention Program beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. Children who
bully, who are bullied, and who see bullying can suffer emotionally, physically, and academically. The Second Step
Bullying Prevention Program helps our students learn to Recognize bullying, Report bullying, and Refuse to accept
bullying-a new 3 Rs.
