My class is special because we have a Gong, windows, hanging lights and we even have our own computers. I really think my class is so cool because we can buy things from our classroom store. All in all, I enjoy my classroom. Colton M.
I like that my room has a store where we shop every Friday. I love Loess Hills because it is the best school in the district. Cody is my best friend and we play a lot during recess. Jay S.

Mr. Kimmel’s Compass Academy Loess Hills Elementary
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
Side Note: When I left Mr. Kimmel’s class, one young man said to me, “Thank you for your job.” I thought to myself, what a great comment...I love my job and my job allows students of all ages to submit materials for publication. He is absolutely right, I am thankful for my job. What a great job it is! Jeanette Hopkins, Educational Coordinator
Each month NIE Siouxland and Claudia Hessa, owner of The Sugar Shack, sponsor a classroom of the month. Students and their teachers are invited to send us in statements or an article about their classroom. Students share their insights about special rooms, classmates and teachers. KUDOS to Claudia for taking time to honor education in a special and sweet way! This month we honor Mr. Kimmel’s Compass Academy at the Loess Hills Elementary School in Sioux City.
