  • 2020 Enrichment Day Activities

    The second annual 7th-12th Enrichment Day went off without a hitch!  The main intention behind the Enrichment Day is to show our appreciation for the hard work that our students put forth every day and ease them into the second semester by providing educational opportunities that focus less on academics and more on lighthearted fun.  We as a staff feel like this is a great way for our students to learn and grow in ways that may not always be afforded to them in the regular educational setting.  This year’s Enrichment Day was a fine mix of drawing upon the foundational knowledge and skills that our students already possess while introducing opportunities that may peak a new interest as well as enhance creative and critical thinking skills.  Our students were divided into groups based on number and not on grade and each group was able to participate in each activity for a full hour.  The activities included roller coaster building, card tricks, origami, the card game Euchre, an escape room, and yard games.  A special session that our elementary students were able to enjoy as well, was a presentation on glass blowing by Michael Beahm through the Hastings College Mobile Glass Studio.

  • Ansley Looks to Start ESports Team

        As you may or may not know, we are trying to form an Esports Gaming Team at Ansley Public Schools. We are in the organizational phase of trying to get things together, but I wanted to get some information out to you to make sure you understand what we have going on and what we are trying to do.

        ESports is a growing activity that can mean many different things. In general, it is a team of students playing a video game where they must devise and implement strategies to win. The games chosen usually emphasize team strategy over video game skill. By working together, trying and modifying strategies, and communicating clearly, the team will be successful. Not all Esports games or leagues are set up this way, as some of them are focused more on the individual instead of the team. Next semester, we will have the opportunity to compete in both types of games. The one we are primarily focused on is called League of Legends. Students work together in groups of 5 to defeat the other team by strategically planning out their attacks and making use of their characters abilities while minimizing their shortcomings. There is some cartoon level violence, but nothing graphic or explicit. This game is used in several Esports leagues and is played by around 100 million people. 

        The other game that will be Super Smash Brothers by Nintendo. This is a one on one fighting game with famous Nintendo characters like Mario and Luigi. Although it is a fighting game, the animations are still cartoonish and not graphic. This game focuses mostly on the student’s ability to select and use characters in the best orders and to use the moves that will benefit them the most. 

        These are the two games that will be featured next semester in our Esports league. Our Esports League is called the Nebraska Esports Association and contains teams such as Broken Bow, SEM, Elm Creek and Amherst but also teams like Gering, Beatrice and Grand Island Northwest. They have purposely selected games that are not overly violent, and have a basis in strategy. Games like Fortnite or Call of Duty are not used. You can get more information from their website at http://nebraskahsesports.com/

        We had some organizational meetings and there was a strong interest among our students. The team is open to boys and girls from grades 7 through 12. We will be holding practices when we can, but it is probably going to be a morning activity as the afternoons are really busy. Students can practice by themselves or over the internet with other students at anytime they are out of school. We have made it clear, and will continue to make it clear that students cannot play these games during school hours. Also, these kids will not be allowed to compete if they are ineligible. Practices are going to be voluntary, as it will be hard to get a time for all students 7-12 that works. So we will get together when we can, and go from there. We may be able to arrange something after school at a future date. Events will be held next semester. Some events are over the internet, but some schools have computer labs set up for tournaments that we can go to that school to participate.

    I think this could be an exciting and new way to show the talents and abilities of our young learners. It is a new and growing platform and we are excited to be a part of it. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school.

  • 6th Graders Enjoy Being Reading Buddies

    The 6th Graders enjoy spending time reading to our 1st Grade Buddies everyday after lunch recess.  We have helped the 1st graders meet their AR Goals for the first quarter and are on the way to having helping them all meet their goals again for second quarter.  This is some of the 6th graders favorite time of the day.
