Parents wishing to talk with school staff will be more successful on Monday, June 2, when the building reopens, complete with AC.
On the popular game show, “Where in the World is Carmen, San Diego?,” the villain would be hard pressed to outwit Seele Elementary fourth grader Jordan Jacks. He recently excelled in Delta’s World Adventure Challenge with Carmen San Diego and has a shot of being named the international grand prize winner.
As one of only 10 World Champions, he could win the drawing for the grand prize at U.S Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama on July 24-27 He advanced to world by being one of 38 national winners.
As a world champion, he won the space camp adventure, a $1,000 savings bond, a Space Camp Scholarship and a CD radio cassette recorder. For his teacher, he won her a space adventure weekend, a $1,000 savings bond and an electronic personal organizer.
As a national winner, he won a $100 savings bond, a portable cassette radio player and a gift pack. His teacher earned a classroom world map.
. The grand prize winner takes home round-trip economy class tickets for four to any one of the cities Delta serves around the world from the Delta city nearest the winner’s home. Other prizes include $500 worth of cassettes or compact discs and the teacher of the winning students receives a set of classroom maps valued at $500.
He and his classmates were prompted to enter the contest by their teacher, Dr. Merry Saegert, He and other nine- to 12-year olds throughout the world were challenged to write a time capsule and an essay describing an item of important historical significance and what would happen if it disappeared. After considering items such as gun powder and Leif Ericson’s boat, he chose the Magna Carta, or “great charter.” The document was granted by King John of England at the insistence of English barons at Runnymede on June 15, 1215. The charter is traditionally thought to have guaranteed certain civil and political liberties.
“It was a lot of work,” said Jacks of the assignment. But, he added, “I learned a lot! I barely knew about the medieval times." In addition to the time capsule and the essay, he completed a map of England and surrounding

countries in the 1200’s. Much of the work was completed on the computer, he said.
Jacks, who likes history, is in the Seele Geography club. He is also an avid reader. Earlier this month, he was named “Principal for a Day.” He won the privilege by excelling in the school’s accelerated reader contest. To win, he had to earn 250 points by reading and testing out on a number of books in the reader series.
