It's not easy being the best. You need dedication, commitment, and perseverance. Our very own Greyhound Band is a shining example. Through scorching heat, heavy rain, and frigid snow, our band plays on. Although band camp is nearing an end, the new year is upon us. From 8AM - 10PM everyday, they practice until perfect. That's what it takes to be the best. That's what it takes to be a Greyhound.

High school gifted students team up with Ms. Shultze's students to create switch adapted toys for the HEAT project sponsored by Steve Sheirer and the Midwestern IU IV. The high school gifted students chose toys that they thought would be of interest and were age-appropriate for the students in Ms. Shultze's class. This project consisted of students 3-D printing parts for a switch, wiring, and assembling the switches. Once they had the switches created, they had to disassemble, rewire, and reassemble the toys to better meet the needs of their friends in the MD classroom. The students in Ms. Shultze's class were thrilled to get together with the high school students and use the new toys that were adapted just for them. These toys found their new home in Ms. Shultze's classroom.
