It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
At the beginning of spring this year, the fifth grade students at Northridge had the privilege to go on a unique and meaningful field trip to the CU Boulder campus. Prior to embarking on their field trip, students had discussions with their teachers and each other about their understanding of what a university was. The were able to talk with a CU student , Mr. Matt, who worked with them every Tuesday on STEM activities about, what his experience was like. Students also had lessons on an iPad app called "Notability" that they would be using to document their experience on the trip.
When students arrived at the CU Boulder campus, they immediately were taken to a building in the School of Engineering where they engaged in a design challenge to design a levee to help a town in danger of being flooded. After collaborating on solutions with teams, students took a walk to the Center for Community (C4C) to have lunch. Students were in awe of the many different restaurants in the building--and were more impressed by the "all you can eat" buffet style. As they ate, students commented on the university students and what they were doing while there. They noticed that college students talked, studied, and collaborated while they ate. Northridge students took pictures with their iPads and took digital notes as they made their observations.
After lunch, students went on a tour of the campus. They had the opportunity to see the CU football stadium, the library, the enormous recreation center, and they even got to tour a residence all (also known as a dormitory) to see what college life is like. As with the C4C experience, students took many photos and took copious notes of their experience.
On the bus ride home, students could not contain their excitement about what they had seen and done. Many of them were talking about their desire to attend college, even if it was not specifically CU Boulder. Conversations could be heard in which students argued the benefits of becoming a civil engineer versus an environmental engineer. The impact of the trip to CU Boulder is one they will not soon forget, and has made connections for students that quite possibly will impact their very future.
