Message from Administration
Dear Tuscany Heights Elementary Parents,
We hope that starting this Friday evening families are able to embark on a fabulous week with loved ones. Tuscany Heights feels incredibly grateful for all of you and your contributions to our school. Thank you for all that you do to make this a great place for our students to grow!
A follow-up from last week, We have some exciting news to share with our families about a new program that all of our students will experience during the specials rotation this year and we hope, even more next year, Tuscany Heights Makerspace. See below for more details and pictures of the exciting opportunities we are sharing with our students.
Enjoy your time with family!
What is Tuscany Heights Makerspace?
The Tuscany Heights Makerspace Lab will use science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) to encourage student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. We want to encourage our students to take intellectual risks, participate in experiential learning and work through the creative process. These hands-on learning stations will give our Tigers the opportunity to collaborate and problem-solve in an environment that fosters the idea that every failure eventually leads to success.
Makerspace: Building a Magnificent Thing
The students were building with straws and connectors after hearing the story The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires. Students were challenged to build a 'magnificent thing'. Older students were challenged to build an invention to help a classroom teacher or student.
