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.

New robots have made their way into the Indian Peaks family! Squeals of delight have filled the hallways as Wonder Workshop robots' "On" button is lit!
Teachers are learning about robotics alongside enthusiastic students with the "Dot" and "Dash" robots. Dot and Dash coincide with 4 different applications. Students are able to manipulate their robots by programming on the iPads. Lights, sound effects, sensors, and motion engage students of all ages.
Students were introduced to the drag-and-drop programming app, "Blockly", to code representation of their morning routine. Students were able to program an alarm, sounds to represent grumpiness, transportation to school, and their arrival at school (with the sound effect, "Ta da!").
The Indian Peaks community has been fortunate to be part of the design process with the founding company, Wonder Workshop. Educational representatives are in constant contact with our school to gather feedback on student reactions and ways teachers are using the materials. Our feedback has been taken into account and used to help better the product. True design thinking in action!
In the future, students will explore Dot and Dash's response to one another and their story-telling capabilities. We hope to integrate this unique feature into the core areas of literacy, math, science, and social studies.
