My Students

Our school serves kids in grades TK-5. We have high expectations for our students-believing that everyone can succeed. We provide them with a rigorous education focusing on the Common Core State Standards. Our goal is to prepare children to be college and/or career ready.

Our school population is very diverse.

Forty-five percent of our students are on a free or reduced cost lunch program and about 40% of our students are second language learners-with a several different languages being represented. The students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds with various learning styles and needs in every classroom. We have a TK-5 Autistic Spectrum in which many of those students are mainstreamed for all or part of the day.

The teachers at our school are highly qualified, very dedicated and go above and beyond to make sure that each child's needs are met and that the students leave our school with a love of learning and a desire to discover and explore new things.

My Project

Magna-Tiles are an excellent component to a learning center! The use of Magna-Tiles will allow the students the opportunity to imagine and create projects in a fun, safe way using the engineering design process. The students can imagine what they can build, plan out how they will build their creation, improve their design along the way and ask themselves if they achieved their goal.

Magna-Tiles allow the students the opportunity to work individually, as partners or in a small group.

It can be used as an assignment, or as a supplemental activity to foster creative thinking and problem solving skills.
