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.
As schools in our district increasingly see the importance of STEM integration, we begin to look more closely at what it means to be a “STEM Teacher”. Taking the philosophy of STEM and turning into the practice of STEM is no small feat. Here at Alpine, our teachers take this task seriously, working hard to learn, implement and integrate STEM practices into our daily learnings. Recently, teachers spent time developing their understanding and efficacy in using STEM practices. We focused on the following practices and how we might incorporate them more systematically into our classroom environment.
· Integration: How might we dissolve boundaries between content areas in our lessons and classrooms?
· Problem Solving: How might we present problems and design challenges as learning opportunities?
· Skills and Competencies: How might we push students’ learning beyond that which is measurable?
· Personalized Learning: How might we give students more say in what and how they learn?
· Connection: How might we help build relationships with people, places and professions?
