What to bring each day
Traveling Mural in Art & Media
This project in our media and art classes is about creating global connections and community with others around the world. It embodies the goal of PYP and all IB programmes, according to the International Baccalaureate Organization, to "develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world."
Before we started, we read the book "Maybe Something Beautiful" about a town that worked together to create a mural. We created our own 10 foot mural and had every class at Hayes draw a giraffe to represent our mascot to add to the mural. Some giraffes were even drawn by staff members and families! We cut the mural into 10 pieces and mailed 9 pieces to different parts of the country, all the way from Massachusetts to New York to Alabama to Texas! They will do the same thing and send back their mural pieces. We will put them all together and display artwork from all 10 schools (including Hayes) in our school! With the Traveling Mural Project, we will be connecting with other school communities around the world to create murals of peace, friendship, diversity and love.
Protecting Student Data
Fridley Public Schools uses a variety of digital tools to support student learning. Depending upon the particular educational technology being used, our district may need to collect different types of student data, which is then shared with educational technology vendors through their online sites, services, and/or applications. Under Minnesota’s Student Data Privacy Act, educational technology vendors are prohibited from selling or renting a student's information or from engaging in targeted advertising using a student's information. Such vendors may only disclose student data for K-12 school purposes and other limited purposes permitted under the law. This act also requires districts to provide timely notice of the tool used, data collected, and contact information.
