The May 24 Kingston North Kitsap Rotary meeting welcomed a presentation by student leaders at Gordon Elementary.  Those in attendance were impressed.  Anyone concerned about our local elementary school programs should have been there; they wouldn’t be afterward.  Gordon Elementary Principal Karen Tollefson, a Rotary Club member, introduced the 5th-grade students, who described the many programs the school features.  They include STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) nights, monthly family reading nights, parent/teacher plays, and meaningful work program (if you’re late, you’re fired). All the programs are extra-curricular and meant to expand, beyond the classroom, school, student, and parent connections.
