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.

We’ve all been asked this question since we were old enough to talk, and some of us continue to entertain this question even though we are well into a career we enjoy. This question was posed to a group of Skyline High School sophomores and what they came up with was awesome!
What would you do if education were completely free? What would you do if you would make $200,000, regardless of your job? Do these change your mind on what you want to be when you grow up??
The focus of this unit was on planning for the future & perseverance. Students were asked, first, to get to know themselves a little better. After a few short assignments and a presentation to the class about who they are, the students then zeroed in on a person they knew that had demonstrated perseverance while working toward a goal. This then led to students looking at career options for themselves while working within their interests, as well as personal requirements for education, income, and work activities. Three careers were chosen, researched, and shared with a small group of “critical friends”.
One student shared that she wanted to be able to help people; she would like to pursue midwifery. This fit her criteria because she would not need to go to school for a really long time.
One of her groupmates is planning to be a doctor. She admitted school attendance might be a barrier, but she is working on turning that around.
Another wanted to use his native language to become a translator. He recognizes a need to study his language further.
A third is planning to be a singer. Her group gently pointed out that she is very shy, and it might be hard for her to sing in front of a crowd (especially because she has a hard time talking in front of the class). She admitted that stagefright might be a problem for her, but that she would work on it.
Overall, many students received support that they had chosen a good career path. A few got feedback to think about how their choice might pose some challenges that they need to overcome. All got an opportunity to make their goals public. Just saying them out loud makes them more real.
This unit helped students figure out what they need to do to accomplish their goals, as well as provide a support network among their peers and teachers. As they write “future resumes” as a culmination of this unit, they will, essentially, create a plan for themselves to help them realize their goals.
