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.
In 8th grade math class, students were hard at work creating perfect squares of varying sizes and calculating the area of each. They used these squares three at a time to create a triangle in the center and determine which type of triangle was created. The 8th graders analyzed the relationship between the areas of the squares and the type of triangle. Eventually, the inquiry-based activity and guiding questions from the teacher led to the students' discovery of the Pythagorean Theorem, which states that the length of a hypotenuse squared is equal to the sum of the square of each leg. This is a highly complex theorem that becomes much more manageable and understandable when students are provided time for inquiry, trial, and discovery. Instead of memorizing a formula, these students are now equipped with the reasoning behind the equation and will therefore experience higher retention and engagement when faced with similar problems.
