New and veteran teachers gathered together for a full day workshop to learn about implementing the newly adopted GO Math curriculum for grades K-6. They worked together and learned how to incorporate the technology components of the program and navigate the variety of resources included. Some of their work addressed standards pacing, assessment, home school connections, and guidance for teachers with combo classes. It was a great day of professional learning together.
We are seeking input from stakeholders from across the district to give input on the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Our first meeting will be held on Tuesday December 12th from 4:30-6:00 in the Rim High School library. Be a part of the team and and learn about the newly released fall California School Dashboard and how it can be used to guide the district’s LCAP.
Together We Can!
From Veronica McGilvery, Principal, Lake Arrowhead Elementary School
LAE’s PTA supported arts, literature, and imagination in our students who enjoyed a production of Alice in Wonderland put on by the Cal State University, San Bernardino theater department. The actors did a wonderful job engaging and captivating all our students.
Rim High School Literature Club visited LAE on Thursday, November 30th! These dedicated students chose to share the love of reading with our LAE students, instead of sleeping in on their late start morning. Our students always look forward to this event.
Hour of Code, during computer science education week, is occurring now: December 4-10th! The students and teachers at LAE are participating in the largest learning event in history. We live in a world surrounded by technology, and we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how the technology works. “90% of parents want their child to study computer science, but only 40% of schools teach computer programming.” Computer science is about logic, problem-solving, and creativity. Are we preparing our students for their future or our past? Our Hour of Code is making a statement that LAE is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.
