Thompson Elementary started an after-school program in September 2015 comprised of 5th graders who wanted to work with the technology teacher (Mr. Brooks) to do something that had never been done during the school's history...have the students build a school website. This group is known as the WDT (Web Design Team).

 

     These extremely talented 5th graders had to try out to make the team. First, they had to be highly recommended by their teachers to even be considered. Next, they had to fill out an application and answer several questions giving details why they wanted to be on the team, which narrowed the candidates down to 17. Finally, they had to interview with Mr. Brooks, resulting in the 11 students below making the team.

 

     This team worked hard learning how to manipulate graphics and format web pages meeting once per week after school. After they completed their training, they began a mission to completely redesign and rebuild the Thompson Elementary school website. It is believed to be the first group of elementary students in Clark County School District history to create their school's website from scratch to finish. This website is a result of their talent and commitment, and they have earned the respect of their teachers, administrators and peers.

 

     Below are the 2015-16 Web Design Team members who have presented to the community this tremendous website...
