As Tipton Academy wraps up its first school year,
we have a lot to celebrate.
We celebrate Families – Tipton Academy celebrates
our school families throughout the year. At the
end of each trimester our Enrichment Night allows
our students to showcase their talents for all to see.
Our Family Movie Nights bring together parents
and siblings of all ages for a night of fun and a
good movie. And to celebrate our moms and dads,
students honored their moms at our Mother's Day
Tea and recently celebrated their fathers at our Dads
and Donuts event.
We celebrate Academics – Tipton students have
made significant academic gains this year. Staff
has worked hard throughout the year to meet the
needs of each student and give them many different
opportunities to bring that knowledge to life.
We celebrate Students – Tipton Academy celebrates
our student's success in many different ways each
and every day. Some students participate as a reading
buddy, while others help out in the preschool rooms
during lunch. Our school safeties attended a Tiger
baseball game while our 3rd and 5th grade spelling bee
champions attended the State Spelling Bee. Some
have even earned a golden ticket because they were
caught doing something good. Twenty-five of our
4th-5th grade students are excited to be attending
Science Camp at LSSU this summer and, thanks to Mr.
John Romine who provided their scholarships; five
students will be attending the Fine Arts Camp.
Tipton Academy has a lot to celebrate and are
looking forward to next year!
Impact in the real world...
What made Rachel's Lake Superior State experience so unique was the practical research she did with top-notch faculty.
"I really enjoyed working with environmental chemistry professor Judy Westrick and biologist Deb Stai," Rachel says. "For my senior project, we evaluated a lab method for cultivating a fungus that causes infections in humans."
