WINTER WONDERLAND - GIFT OF READING
On Wednesday, January 29, 2020, over 200 people, including students and their families joined Del Norte Elementary staff for an evening to celebrate literacy. Participants were able to enjoy a meal together in the new Rio Grande Bistro (Upper Rio Grande School District’s Cafeteria).
Upper Rio Grande School Board of Education members Neal Walters, Bridget Kreutzer, Veronica Climie, and Keith Brown joined district administors in reading aloud to the elementary students. Families experienced learning in the new building. After the books were read, students made a craft with their family members and then teachers handed out books to each student.
One of the main goals at Del Norte Elementary is making sure students are enjoying literature. Thank you to everyone who attended!
Dr. Matt Nehring, an Adams State University Physics professor and two students from Adams State University brought STEM Saturday to Del Norte Elementary School Saturday, February 1, 2020.
Fourth and fifth graders spent the day learning about electrical circuits. The students were then able to build remote control cars. They applied their knowledge from the beginning of the session and were able to create cars with lights and horns. By late morning, groups of students were racing their cars through the Del Norte Elementary School STEM Lab. Del Norte Elementary School students (K – 6th Grade) each have a STEM Lab class twice a week.
The students had a blast learning with the ASU team. They were begging to stay longer and were asking if Dr. Nehring would come again next year. We are very thankful for the opportunity to host STEM Saturday and we very much appreciate the work and time of Dr. Nehring and his students.
HAPPY SCHOOL COUNSELOR WEEK!
