On Thursday, one of our 5th grade classrooms hosted a Career Day! Sharing their career stories with our students were Dr. and Mrs. Dibs. Mrs. Dibs is a Heart Nurse and she explained the nursing profession and how nurses care for patients. Mrs. Dibs also explained the importance of science education and how a nurse is required to continue education throughout their careers. Nurses truly make a difference!
Dr. Dibs is a Cardiologist Heart Doctor. He showed a model of a heart and explained how the heart functions. He shared a video which our students really enjoyed. Dr. Dibs explained how to keep your heart healthy. The students were very interested and it was apparent based on all the great questions they asked!
Thank you Dr. and Mrs. Dibs for sharing your career stories with our students.

What is a word worth? Ask some of our 4th and 5th grade students. They created displays to "sell" their selected words. Parents, staff, and students throughout Rutledge Hall, and even a few from Todd, came shopping.

5th Grade Experiences Pioneer Life at The Grove
During the end of September, each 5th-grade class at Rutledge Hall visited The Grove in Glenview to experience pioneer life in 1856. Students' hands-on activities included candle making, churning butter and cooking. They also learned about rope making, tin punching and weaving at the Historic Kennicott House.
The field trip is a unique experience that is a tradition at Rutledge Hall. The program is operated by the Glenview Park District and is aligned to state learning standards in social studies of gaining understanding of individuals and the history of Illinois.
The Grove was a designated National Historic Landmark in 1976 and was the home of visionary horticulturist and educator Dr. John Kennicott. His accomplishments include an exhibition of his specimen collection at the Smithsonian and the founding of the Chicago Academy of Sciences, according to the park district's website.
