Weekly News

Last week our scholars were honored to have the chance to interact with two experts, Mr. Rojas and Meteorologist Jennifer Myers. Mr. Rojas spoke with our students about the power of giving back and inspired them to use their learning to make a difference for others. Meteorologist Jennifer Myers from Fox 4 News interacted with our scholars via Skype and answered questions about weather concepts, weather patterns, preparation, and the complex science of meteorology. It was definitely an incredible week of learning and growth!

Scholars will be wearing their "Environmental Engineer" hats this week as they dive deeper into learning about weather and begin engineering structures that can withstand a given form of severe weather. Teams will work together to construct models that meet all constraints. They will be allowed to bring materials from home as long as the material is recycled or unprocessed.

La semana pasada, nuestros alumnos tuvieron la oportunidad de interactuar con dos expertos, Mr. Rojas y la meteoróloga Jennifer Myers. Mr. Rojas le habló a los estudiantes sobre el poder de dar, y los inspiró a usar su aprendizaje para ayudar a otros. Jennifer Myers, meteoróloga de Fox 4 News, interactuó con nuestros estudiantes vía Skype y respondió sus preguntas sobre conceptos y patrones del clima, y sobre la ciencia de la meteorología.

Los alumnos se pondrán sus sombreros de "Ingenieros Ambientalistas" esta semana, ya que aprenderán en más detalle sobre el clima y comenzarán a construir estructuras que puedan resistir alguna forma de clima extremo. Los equipos trabajarán juntos para diseñar modelos que cumplan con todas los lineamientos. Los estudiantes podrán traer materiales de su casa, siempre y cuando sean materiales reciclados o sin procesar.




Wonderful writing is happening in fourth grade! Scholars have been working hard to complete the final phase of "Expository Writing Bootcamp." In the first two phases, scholars have experienced guided planning and paragraph development lessons, and they have practiced planning and writing with partners. In this final phase, scholars are now using their new confidence and these practiced skills to independently plan and create thoughtful expository writing!

Los alumnos han estado trabajando para culminar la etapa final del entrenamiento de escritura expositiva. En las primeras dos etapas, los estudiantes recibieron guía en el plan y desarrollo de la escritura de párrafos, así como también practicaron la escritura con un compañero. En esta etapa final, los alumnos usarán sus propias destrezas para planear y escribir independientemente.
