Caldwell Receives $3,000 Grant!

Caldwell STEAM program is growing! Mrs. Taylor received a grant from the Polk Education Foundation to begin our 3D printing program! The ‘STEAMING UP POLK’ Grant allowed us to purchase three 3D printers, filament, and other technology resources. The 5th graders have been learning 3D design and producing many 3D printed projects from this grant. We are thankful for the opportunities and support PEF gives to our schools!

Volunteer Background Check Fee to Remain at $25 Through End of 2018

The Polk County School Board has decided that the fee to cover volunteers’ background checks, as well as their badge and handbook, will remain $25 through the end of the calendar year.

Polk County Public Schools will be using more extensive volunteer background checks as part of our security measures to protect students and staff. The district will incur an additional charge for the statewide and national background checks.

However, through the end of 2018, the cost to volunteers will remain $25. We are exploring other funding sources to help offset the cost of background screening for volunteers on an ongoing basis. More information will follow.

Our staff and students are each a member of a ‘house’. Each house brings a different strength to create ONE SCHOOL. During the year, each house can earn points for their house and we recognize a house leader at the end of each 9 weeks.
