Students in Ms. Fournier’s United States History and Geography at Tinkham had the opportunity to tour the collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Students used museum resources to study in a historical context in class before the visit, generating questions.
“If this makes a difference in even one students life, this will have been worth doing.” Matt Carr, CEO of Storch Magnetics, put together an amazing tour of his manufacturing plant for students from two schools, Tinkham Educational Center was one of those lucky schools. Kim Millstead along with Vonda Newborn and 25 Tinkham students headed to Storch Magnetics Friday morning.
Eleven students and paraprofessional Vonda Newborn from Tinkham Education Center volunteered with me ( Kimberly Millstead) at Life Remodeled on Tuesday, October 2nd. Across 6 days, 10,000 people will volunteer around the Durfee Neighborhood in Detroit to remove blight and make safer, cleaner areas for residents and students to walk. We were only 13 of those volunteers but we worked hard and we definitely did our part! Our Tinkham students are amazingly hard workers, it made me so proud to be part of these students lives and honored to be working alongside them.
