WARSAW — Recently, fourth-grade students at Jefferson, a Warsaw Community Schools STEM-certified elementary school, have been learning about various kinds of renewable energy: wind, hydro and solar power.
WCS district partner PSG Energy Group came in to share about solar power. In 2016, PSG first installed solar panels throughout WCS buildings and has remained a close partner.
Last week, a team from PSG came to continue the preventative maintenance program throughout the district. While in town, they stopped by Jefferson to meet with students, share the potential behind solar energy at local and national levels and continue the dialogue with a Q&A session.
This specific partnership with PSG and Jefferson Elementary School has taken place for the last few years.
“PSG was able to take a complex subject matter and make it understandable to our students,” said Marc Andrews, a fourth-grade teacher. “They brought scientific, engineering, and practical experience together.”
Fourth-grade student Elijah Jarrett was grateful for the time.
“Thank you for doing everything you can for us to better understand solar energy,” said Jarrett.
WCS and Jefferson Elementary staff thank PSG for taking the time to give thoughtful consideration to WCS students and the community. They are difference-makers for current and future generations.
