It takes a lot to become a Skoolbo Super School–1 million collective answers, that is–but that’s just what both Overbrook Attendance Center (OAC) and South Polk Elementary endeavored to do. Currently, only 4 other schools in America lay claim to the title of Skoolbo Super School.
Overbrook Attendance Center | Overbrook, KS
Overbrook Attendance Center is the pre-K to 2nd grade school for USD #434 Santa Fe Trail, located in the city of Overbrook, approximately 25 miles southeast of Topeka. The OAC faculty’s commitment to nurturing their students’ thirst for knowledge, paired with the support of a vibrant community of parents and others, clearly reflects the students’ outstanding performance on Skoolbo!
We want to give a special shout-out to Overbrook’s Computer Paraprofessional, Cheryl Arwine for bringing technology and education together at OAC. We also want to especially recognize teachers Susan Bernhardt, Roxy Heffner, Chris Giebler, whose classes have answered over 90K questions and Amanda Lattimer and Angie Portlock, whose classes are each well over 150K answers!
South Polk Elementary | Old Fort, TN
Located in the southeast corner of Tennessee, South Polk Elementary is home to the most active students of their state! We applaud the Polk County Schools’ beliefs that
All children can learn.
Learning is a life-long process.
Both mental and physical health are important.
Students need to think both critically and creatively.
These beliefs have propelled 17 classes of South Polk Elementary, each ranging from 30 to 120 K answers, to Super School status! High praises are due to Amy Hood and Marcia McClary and their Kindergarteners for answering well over 100,000 questions in each of their classes, as well as Tina Davenport, South Polk Elementary’s very own Computer Lab teacher, for setting up and organizing all the classes.
Congratulations to both Overbrook Attendance Center and South Polk Elementary School for their fantastic accomplishment! We here at Skoolbo are committed to our dream of every child learning to read and gaining confidence with numbers and we are so glad to have the support of these two outstanding schools!
