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.
Students at Fall River Elementary participated in learning about computer science in an integrated, physical way! With support from Lindsay Craig and Jennifer Bettencourt, 5th grade students learned about conditionals and wrote pseudo-code while in computer lab. Mrs. Bettencourt worked with students to edit and revise the statements. The statements were then given to Mr. Hoople, the physical education teacher, and students built an obstacle course that reflected the conditional statements. The entire school got to "Run the Code", with Mr. Craig there assisting and supporting students in their efforts. "Run the Code" is a developing curriculum and movement integration that teaches students about computer science and coding without using a device. This unplugged encounter provided students and teachers the opportunity to participate and experience coding in a non-traditional way. This built confidence and excitement in the school community, while supplementing the computer science efforts teachers are pursuing in and out of computer lab. Thank you to Mr. Craig for working with us in this first attempt in an elementary school to "Run the Code"!
