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 that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
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 eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

The Indian Peaks Teacher Leadership Team used the design process to design around the question, "How might we inspire parents in STEM during our Parent Update Meeting?" During two school days, students worked together on the same design challenge: Design a STEM Moose Award to travel throughout our school and showcase STEM innovation. Classrooms participated in the EMPATHY, DEFINE, and IDEATE stages to focus on school community and pride.
To provide support, teachers were provided a bulleted lesson plan and an accompanying video.
The culminating event took place on November 11th! Families were introduced to STEM through a video presentation in the gym, and then traveled to break-out sessions where their students presented ideas they were working on in their classrooms. Teachers worked together to facilitate discussion in each design group. Families coordinated to prototype the students' designs and wrapped-up by voting on the most aesthetically pleasing.
We were excited to ideate and design a unique opportunity for our students and families! Feedback from the community was overwhelmingly positive, so we hope to make this a recurring event!
