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.

Mrs. Aguirre has been intrigued with the Design Thinking process since she was trained in it last year. She dabbled in small challenges here and there, but this winter, she found an authentic problem with some of her students. Mrs. Aguirre, like many other teachers, noticed that her students sruggled when trying to memorize their math facts.
So, she posed a problem to her 4th and 5th grade students. "Our third graders are beginnning to learn their multiplication facts. Can you design something that would help them learn their facts?"
Right away students chimed in with ideas of video games, simulations, and even carnival games. To help the students guide their project and make it authentic, they interviewed the third grade students for which they were designing. Through valuable insight, the 4th and 5th grade students began building and designing interactive games. Of course, before the students could build their design, they had to know their math facts. As the students built, they were memorizing their facts and quizzing each other.
After the students finished their prototypes, the 3rd grade students came to the cafeteria to test out and play the games. Laughter, giggles, and math facts could be heard throughout the cafeteria as students tried out the prototypes and learned their math facts. While the games were being played, the students received valuable feedback and had ideas of their own to improve their game.
Back to the prototyping lab went the students to make the necessary adjustments. Overall, all of the students had fun and learned their multiplication facts in all three grades.
