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.
Enrich teacher learning in order to enrich student learning.
Teachers have been working hard all year to embrace new ideas about STEM. We’ve been learning new strategies, opening ourselves to new perspectives, and trying new ways of teaching. Our professional development time has enabled us to be risk-takers in so many ways, from working with students, to working with colleagues, creating new learning, and thinking of teaching in a whole new way. As a staff, we have been collaborating more in both grade level teams and as a school community. This helps us as we collaborate with students, and in having students collaborate with each other. As teachers, we expect students to be critical thinkers every day. By embracing STEM, we also have the expectation that we are critical thinkers everyday as well. From changes in technology to teaching style, we are working hard to become the best STEM school we can be.
