New Year, New Equipment!

Every classroom will be receiving ONE touch screen monitor to replace a current classroom monitor. Jose will be starting this process this week, so be thinking of which one you'd like to replace. Enjoy!

No worksheets? No problem!

Look at all of these EXCELLENT examples of our students not using worksheets. Great thinking outside the box, teachers! You can click on the pictures for a larger view.

iCreate, uCreate, we all Create!


  • Every teacher is expected to meet with Mrs. Aquino for a 30 minute block to go over your iCreate idea form. You can meet in a group if it is a collaboration. Please fill out the form below if you want to meet this week.
  • Projects should be completed and submitted by Friday, January 29th.
  • Remember the thinking process is the important piece: Why did you do the project? Prek guideline? Thinking maps? Higher order thinking?
