Earlier this week, Mr. Arthur took our 7th graders on a field trip to some local areas as part of our LEEP Program. LEEP stands for Lake Ecology Education Program. The LEEP kids did hands-on activities involving:
1- Benthic Macroinvertebrates and their indicators of healthy waters
2- Tree Studies, with tree i.d., core sampling, and height estimation w/ clinometers
3- Shoreline Restoration
4- Ecology Scavenger Hunt...
5- Lake Water Studies
6- Canoe Races
7- Visit from the WI DNR showing how they use fish netting to sample and test fish.
What a cool trip for these kids! And what a perfect day to get out of the classroom.
“Cheerio! Cheery-Me!” and “Whoo-who-who-who,” were the sounds coming from Drummond Elementary fourth grade classes, all in anticipation of the Bird Calling Contest, a contest sponsored by the Chequamegon Audubon Society. Each student chose a Wisconsin bird to research habitat, food, nesting, and cool facts about a favorite bird. They also practiced repeatedly the bird song or call. This year the chorus heard down the halls included a hermit thrush, wood duck, six great-horned owls, hawks, eastern screech owls, a mourning dove, gray catbirds, an Eastern phoebe, black-capped chickadees, red-breasted nuthatches, and ring-necked pheasants.
THE JILLS ARE CONFERENCE CHAMPS!!!
Drummond split with Ironwood, losing 0-2 and then winning 6-0. They finish with 13-1 on top of the conference!
Good luck in tournament time, girls!! Take it all the way!
Happy D.A.R.E. Graduation Day, 5th graders!
Today Deputy Dawson, Mr. Knight, as well as family members celebrated Mr. Iverson's 5th grade class completing the DARE program. Way to go, kids!
Special shout-out to the Cable Area Lions Club for the celebratory cake and Rocky's for sponsoring this program.
My goodness, what a fine group of students we have right here! Last night was Senior Scholarship Night here at Drummond. We would like to give a huge thank you to the parents, organizers, speakers, seniors, and most of all the community members who have contributed to each of these students' lives. We've said it before and we'll say it again, we live in the best community with the best community members!!

Yesterday the 6th graders made shoes out of newspaper for a STEM project! STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. They only got a certain amount of materials and time to make a shoe that could be put on and taken off. They first planned, designed, created, evaluated and then recreated and reevaluated. It builds team work skills, creative thinking and problem solving skills.
We've got some smart 6th graders, folks!
Check out our High School band practicing for their upcoming trip to Valleyfair! They're sounding gooooood, don't you think?
