Arnoldsburg's "Lights On!" is pleased to announce the start of the second after-school class being taught by an Arnoldsburg
student. Second grade student, Kenzie Laughlin, taught her first class on Thursday, 7 February 2002. An avid skater, Kenzie
developed a skating program for her fellow students. With over 25 students in her first class, she discussed safety rules, and
demonstrated proper techniques of skating, including how to fall and land safely. The students were respectful and attentive
throughout the class.
Kenzie then took her class to the Spencer skating facility for the students to try their hand (and feet) at skating. This is the first
of 6 classes Kenzie will teach.
Arnoldsburg students have been encouraged to develop classes they feel they could teach. In addition to the skating class, a
Lego class taught by a student is currently taking place. Numerous other projects are in the planning stages, including a bicycle
safety/riding class by a 4th grade student, cheerleading classes by two 4th grade students and more.
The success of the two "Students Teaching Students" classes is not just a testament of the ability of the two teachers, but of all
the students in the classes, who have worked together as a team, learning how to get along with each other. We are proud of
all the students in the Arnoldsburg's "Lights On!" program.
