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 this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
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 este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
At Alpine Elementary IB World School, the International Baccalaureate program that we embrace expects students of all ages to take action to benefit their world. In fourth grade, students were engaged in a unit of study about “Who We Are”, an inquiry into, among other things, our rights and responsibilities, and what it means to be human. The Central Idea for this unit is: “The rights and responsibilities of citizens affect societal decision-making”. Students inquire into the roles of leaders and citizens, the structures of government, and debating policy. In order to give students real-world experience with human needs, rights and responsibilities, and their civic duty of taking action, 4th graders sponsored and led the Alpine Food Drive. Students chose another classroom in the school to educate about our community's food needs. They created posters and presentations for their adopted classroom that would help educate students and promote awareness for food drives and the specific action Alpine would be taking. In addition, students went to these classrooms daily to collect, sort and count food, and graph the data by classroom. The food drive lasted about 2 and a half weeks, and students were able to collect 3,262 pounds of food-that’s a few pounds more than a Toyota Camry! Fourth graders helped load pallets with boxes of food on the last day of the competition. The food was packed into a truck to be delivered to Boulder Community Food Share, which helps many people in need in our area. One in six people in our area are living in need. Please consider how these kids might inspire you to take action to help someone in need.
