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.
Students in grades K-5 showed off their creativity at the 1st Annual LEE Innovation Fair on January 14th, 2016. This was a twist on the traditional science fair. Instead of going through the Scientific Method, students used the Design Thinking Process to come up with innovative ideas to help make the world a better place. About 50 projects were presented to volunteers who evaluated them based on the student's use of the Design Thinking Process, whether they created a new product or adapted an existing one, and their overall presentation skills. Projects ranged in variety from using a toy helicopter to help senior citizens decorate their Christmas trees, to what to do with used, non-recyclable K-Cups, to a Pooch Protector which keeps your dog dry on walks during the rain. It was exciting to see what our future inventors were able to create! We look forward to hosting the Innovation Fair again next school year.
