LEGOLAND is Hiring Model Builders

Dream Job Alert! We talk to our Cosmos about the STEM 4 C's throughout the day. It's great to hear about jobs that actually demonstrate Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration, and Communication. Merlin Entertainment (company that owns LEGOLAND Theme Parks) needs LEGO model builders and designers! Our students watched a short video at liftoff about the importance of these skill sets in the real world!

4C's of STEM

Communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity! We are working everyday to integrate these skills into our science, social studies, and language arts lessons! We are working hard at Christine Camacho Elementary, where learning is authentic and engaging!

NASA!

Our kindergarten teacher, Ms. Chapman, entered a social media contest on Twitter and won a private VIP tour to NASA! She shared her pictures and experiences with our Cosmos last week.

Thank you PTA for Family Fun Night!
