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.
Amazing things happen when students have time to explore.
Just this week in Mrs. Knapp's fourth grade classroom, students had some time to explore and work on a project of their choosing. Two students decided to make a Rocket that could travel to other planets. Their creation was a well thought out rocket ship made of K'NEX. "The gear on the top is powered by the motor with spins the fan to make the rocket fly. We added fins to help steer the ship. And the green and red sticks in the middle are for decoration," says Oscar and Mario, the creators of the ship. When asked what they are going to do next, the students replied, "We're going to add wheels so the ship can go onto other planets and collect rocks." Time to explore is an incredible way for students to find their passion and use their creativity in a positive encouraging environment. If these students are creating model rocket ships at they age of 9, imagine what they can do in five, ten, or twenty years with the encouragement and skills provided through STEM opportunities.
