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.

As part of the "Project Citizen" showcase, fourth and fifth grade students presented at the state capitol Thursday. The Civic Canopy sponsored the event and hosted elementary, middle, and high schools from around the state. The Indian Peaks team gave a 12-minute presentation on the partnership to renovate Affolter Park's playground. They shared highlights from the year and a half long design project; including, prototype mockups, models, stakeholder survey data, community meeting outcomes, processes of city government, and reflections of the process. After the presentation, judges and audience members were allowed to ask questions for 12-minutes. The Indian Peaks team fielded questions like pros, citing evidence and building off of one another's ideas! The final 3-minutes of the presentation was devoted to feedback from the judges.
The team was also required to produce a Process Portfolio, including written statements, photos, and documentation of the project. Students were evaluated in five categories: understanding of the problem, analysis of alternative policies, public policy development and persuasiveness, implementation of an action plan, and portfolio completion.
Parents and teachers were so proud of the Peaks students! What an amazing experience! Thanks to all who helped throughout this project's duration!
