Carpenter Fifth Graders are Going Green!

Mrs. Okonowski’s students have been raving about a new product called the Green Glove Dryer. It is a device that sits on a heating vent and dries wet, soggy gloves after playing in the snow. At the end of the day, students now go home with gloves that are dry and toasty warm. The best part, nothing is needed because the units use the air already circulating from the vents. A true GREEN product!

Karen Smoots, the inventor and developer of the Green Glove Dryers visited students on March 17th. She shared the process of starting with an idea and developing it into a product for consumers. She awarded Jacob L. a certificate for writing the best essay about the dryers. Great job Jacob!

Every school day, the Lake Orion Community School district transports more than 4,000 students to and from school and extra-curricular activities. Our 68 buses travel approximately 800,000 miles annually. Our goal is to provide safe, efficient and on-time transportation services. Our drivers care for the safety and well-being of every child they transport.  Transportation Director Jamie Stottlemyer is asking parents to take a few moments to complete a survey on the department at the link below.  Its purpose is to determine the level of satisfaction with the services we provide. This will help us make continuous improvements to meet the expectations of our community.  To access the survey, CLICK HERE.
