The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.
A drive-through Community Resource Center will be open from 12:00 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the months of June and July. Bilingual staff is available at the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Parkway in Longmont.

This is a very special blog about an amazing project completed by Ashley K. at Trail Ridge Middle School. In my class, the first design challenge was about natural resources. Here is a link to the challenge:
The students had to come up with a new and innovative way to help their country in a hypothetical situation in which that country runs out of its natural resources. Ashley went above and beyond with this challenge. She researched and designed for Guatemala. She defined her problem; “How might we help Guatemala produce coffee if they ran out of their main natural resource, which is oil?” Ashley chose to work alone but gathered information from her peers during our feedback sessions. The students brainstormed prototypes during the ideate phase and I incorporated time for them to give feedback to one another. The majority of my students decided to create a 3D prototype, but Ashley made her prototype by using a software game called Minecraft.
Her solution was a solar powered car that drove around on a track with tunnels underneath. The car sped around on the track so fast that it pushed wind through the tunnels which propelled turbines to create energy. Ashley created this energy track within the minecraft game and presented her project using keynote. The following link is connected to her keynote that she used to present her project.
In the presentation, she explains the brainstorming process that went into creating this idea. Ashley explained how realistic her prototype is and the next steps she would take to reiterate and improve upon it. The amount of creativity and confidence that Ashley exuded was incredible. I am so proud of her innovation in developing this project. I hope that Ashley will enter her idea into the SVVSD Tech Fair... please keep an eye out for it!
