Open Pod Design

Fanning Elementary is an open-pod school. There are many advantages to this unique setting, but perhaps our own Mrs. Ottestad states it best in this acrostic poem:

Opportunities abound for flexible grouping to meet students' needs.

People are aware of and support one another.

Energy and enthusiasm flow throughout our school!

New ideas are welcomed!

Students can see where they came from last year and/or where they are headed next year!

Professional sharing and collaboration abound!

Always learning from others' classroom environments and strategies.

Communication is easier without walls!

Every student develops a sense of being part of something bigger than his/her own class!
