PLYMOUTH â€”Â Earthworks is accepting applications for its summer camp program.
The summer day camps provide unique and fun experiences for children age 6-10. Among the activities specially designed for children are: caring for farm animals, gardening, baking bread, making jam, hiking, swimming, and nature photography. Programs for older children include a young chefâ€™s week, complete with celebration banquet at the end, and a nature photography week, which features a trip to Chicago and a closing gallery exhibit of the childrenâ€™s work.
PLYMOUTH â€” Creating a multi-media presentation for the Fort Wayne Childrenâ€™s Zoo is Washington Elementary first gradersâ€™ latest project-based learning endeavor. Monday and Tuesday, the first graders worked with Plymouth High School desktop publishing students to put together an interactive map of the zoo for visitors to the zooâ€™s website.

BOURBON â€” Mariah and Sydney Musilli were called up front during Triton's school board meeting this week in recognition of a recent selfless deed they had performed. The two sisters, students in Tritonâ€™s school system, had assisted their neighbors during a house fire.
â€śWe always say we have good kids and a good community,â€ť commented Carl Hilling, superintendent. â€śAnd this is just one of those things that shows it is what it is. We can back up what we say.â€ť
In other business:
The Triton School Corporation will begin the 2012-13 school year with a new superintendent, as Donna Burroughs was named superintendent to replace retiring Superintendent Carl Hilling.
Burroughs will officially begin at Triton July 1.
Burroughs said, â€śIâ€™m excited about the opportunity for working with great teachers at Triton. I believe we can make great things happen for the children at Triton. Triton Schools are the best kept secret in Marshall County.â€ť
