People’s Choice is a Renaissance sponsored awards ceremony that allows faculty members to recognize a student who has shown good mannerism, dedication to school, a club, a sport, someone who has strong determination, a willingness to help others, or maybe they are the student who lights up the room by his/her presence and positive attitude. It is the counterpart to Crystal Apple, another Renaissance sponsored ceremony where our students nominate a faculty member for similar reasons. Both of these wonderful programs just held their 10th annual ceremonies here at Shawnee High School.

On Thursday, April 27th, Shawnee students and staff celebrated National Take Your Child to Work Day – a day where kids all over the USA have a chance to connect what they learn at school to the actual working world. Thirty-nine children joined their parents to see what they do at work all day and to begin thinking about their own future. This year’s theme, “Count on Me” encourages kids to recognize the many people they depend on and who depend on them to be successful at home and school. During the day the children worked on team-based activities. In the morning, the kids conquered a STEM challenge, tested their general knowledge, and explored chemical reactions by making slime. During lunch, Shawnee’s own Jake Strong entertained the kids with magic tricks. In the afternoon, the kids competed against each other in Minute to Win it games, exercised their brains and got creative with crayon art. A fun time was had by all!
