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.
The Indian Peaks STEM team collaborated to create this year’s design challenge. After considering different ideas about how we could improve various spaces at our school, we agreed that the Lost and Found was in need of improvement. That led us to create a design challenge around the question, “How might we improve our Lost and Found so that we can find objects quickly and easily?”
The teachers were provided with a lesson plan and video to help facilitate the challenge with their students. They introduced students to the challenge via the short video, which highlighted the need for improvements to our lost and found. During class, students brainstormed ideas around this challenge.
The event took place October 2nd. After gathering in the gymnasium to watch a video introducing the challenge, parents and students went to classrooms to prototype their design ideas. The evening concluded with the participants sharing ideas and providing feedback about there designs.
It was another fun and exciting evening for those who participated in the design challenge and we look forward to next year’s event!
