The Southwest Airlines Adopt-A-Pilot program, introduced in 1997, teaches students through aviation-themed activities related to science, geography, math and writing.
From February through May, Scandia Elementary students will “adopt” Southwest Airlines pilot Bob Carter. Carter will mentor students in fifth grade as they research careers, develop life skills and learn the importance of staying in school.
Southwest Airlines offers this program at no cost to the school.
This Friday is Scandia Elementary’s annual Art & Academic Fair. More than 300 student projects will be on display at this popular event. Special guests from the Minnesota History Center, the FLHS FFA, and Star Lab will be on hand to talk with students and their families.
On Feb. 25, 26 and 28, Scandia Elementary will host a Concordia Language Village residency. Classes will work with two cultural and linguistic specialists to learn more about Chinese language and culture through fun activities.
