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.
In the News section of the Northridge STEM page, you'll read about our first annual VEX IQ Challenge we hosted on February 6th. Knowing what an enormous undertaking the planning of such a large event is, third grade students in Ms. Frederickson's class decided they wanted to help. As a class, they developed empathy for Mr. Woodland, who was planning the event, and created a deisgn challenge for themselves to help him.
They decided that the best way they could help was to design a way to arrange the seating in the cafeteria for the large number of spectators. They used their recently-acquired understanding of multiplication and arrays to design the layout for eighty-one chairs and five risers that were availabe to them. After creating their prototypes on graph paper, they presented their ideas to Mr. Woodland, who provided feedback to them so they could reiterate their designs. Some students, after finishing their designs for the cafeteria, used their understanding of measurement and multiplication to design the layout for the 14 tables that would be placed in the gym!
What a great example of using the skills acquired in school, coupled with the Design Thinkin Process, to solve real world problems. Thank you third grade!
