My Students

Our school is a lucky place because we have amazing students! Our students are hardworking, lovers of learning, and explorers! The students are what makes our school so special.

Students work hard daily to absorb all they can!

If you walked into one of our classrooms you would find students talking, working collaboratively, challenging themselves and others, and loving their learning. Students love to explore new learning in our S.T.E.A.M lab where they are applying new scientific and technological learning!

My Project

Project Lead The Way (PLTW)

We are bringing PLTW Launch to our school.

PLTW is a program (K-5) that uses interdisciplinary modules to bring learning to life. It is most effective when students have ipads to utilize and so I am requesting 8 iPads. The program empowers students to adopt a design-thinking mindset through compelling activities, projects, and problems that build upon each other and relate to the world around them. As students engage in hands-on activities in computer science and engineering, they become creative, collaborative problem solvers ready to take on any challenge.

PLTW’s activity-, project-, and problem-based (APB) instructional design centers on hands-on, real-world activities, projects, and problems that help students understand how the knowledge and skills they develop in the classroom may be applied in everyday life. The following are some examples of PLTW K-5 Curriculum:

Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects like designing a new toy or improving an existing product. Students explore a broad range of engineering topics including mechanisms, strength of structure and materials, and automation, and then they apply what they know to take on challenges like designing a self-powered car.

Students explore the physics of flight and bring what they’re learning to life through hands-on projects like designing a glider and creating a program for an autonomous space rover.

Students learn important aspects of building and site design and development, and then they apply what they know to design a commercial building.

Students investigate and design solutions in response to real-world challenges related to clean and abundant drinking water, food supply, and renewable energy.

Students identify a real-world challenge and then research, design, and test a solution, ultimately presenting their unique solutions to a panel of engineers.
