Booker Magnet Elementary is helping the environment! Fifth grade Booker Magnet Elementary students along with the Arkansas Game and Fish have teamed up to form the Stream Team. Booker Magnet Fifth graders and the Arkansas Game and Fish will be working together to restore the creek which runs through the Oakland Cemetery on Barber Street. Their sponsor, Stephen O’Neal from the Arkansas Game and Fish, have helped to guide the students throughout this project. O’Neal has provided fifth graders with the insight needed to complete this environmental task.
The Stream Team project will continue into next year as well. Booker fifth graders' next steps will be to abate erosion by planting trees, restoring the creeks’ natural hydrology, chemical analysis and regular assessments.
Thanks to Booker Magnet Fifth Graders for making a difference in the environment!

Destination ImagiNation Teams from Carver Magnet Elementary and Booker Arts Magnet Elementary attended the Global Finals Competition. For 26 years, this competition, which this year was held in Knoxville, TN, includes over 1000 teams from more than twenty countries from around the world.
Destination ImagiNation is an activity that allows students to work as teams to build confidence while emphasizing creativity, problem solving, research, presentation and budgeting skills while developing solutions to challenging problems, which are presented at tournaments. This program allows students to learn more than just basic know-how, but also how to utilize their imagination to solve a problem. Some of the goals of this challenging, yet exciting, program include: fostering creativity and critical thinking which are applied to problem solving tools and methods, developing skills such as teamwork, collaboration, and leadership, applying and enhancing written and verbal communication skills and encouraging competence in, enthusiasm for and commitment to real-life problem solving.
Both schools placed at the competition. Carver's team, Cardinal Chaos, placed 13th, while Booker's team placed 46th out of 88 teams. Congratulations to the Carver Magnet and Booker Arts School Destination ImagiNation Teams for their hardwork and dedication! The Carver Fencing Team finished 50th out of 78 teams in the Verses Foiled Again! Challenge at the Global Finals.
