The change we made to our Challenge day has been working great! The kids have gotten the opportunity to work with friends from the other group and they have shown us their ability to collaborate with all different types of personalities. Also, we have enjoyed having all of the students throughout the day. With the switch being such a positive change, we have decided to continue it through the end of the year.
We are extremely excited to be going on two field trips this year! Our first field trip is in March to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. In April, we will be going to the KISD STEAM Center for hands-on Architecture labs. Field trip permission slips are going home this week. Please make sure to sign both permission slips and return them to us by February 28. If you are interested in chaperoning, please complete the Google Form sent out last week. You may access the form by clicking the link below.
If your child has brought home a packet with a bright orange "Photo/Video Permission Form" it is because his/her current privacy code restricts the teachers at the STEAM Center, and us, from taking any pictures of him/her while on the field trip. If you wish to allow us to take picture on the day of the field trip, please complete the form and return it with the field trip permission slips.
