ALPINE UNION THE DESTINATION SCHOOL DISTRICT OF EAST COUNTY!
PLANNING THE FUTURE OF AUSD - YOUR INPUT NEEDED
On October 10th, our District launched an online social media site called Thoughtexchange. Our goal has been to hear from you what you believe are the most important things we need to consider as we plan for the future of AUSD. To date, we've had over 300 ideas submitted and approximately 17,000 ratings of those ideas.
It is very important that we hear from you. I highly encourage you to contribute your thoughts and ideas to help us improve our District and build the future of AUSD. It is only by understanding all perspectives that we can best serve the needs of our students. Click here to add your thoughts and ideas. Thoughtexchange closes October 23, 2018, at 8:00 p.m.
Below is how the process will work.

WHEEL OF EXPERTS - HANDS ON SCIENCE
The “Wheel of Experts”, a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (S.T,E.A.M.) based multiple pathway program provides for student enrichment. Students from kindergarten through 5th grade are exposed to multiple STEAM based courses throughout the school year. As students progress in the program year-to-year, the curriculum will become more advanced, and allow students to explore pathways of interest going into and throughout middle school and high school. This terrific Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math offering is designed for Alpine Union students from Kindergarten through the 5th Grade and is supported and funded through the generosity of the Alpine Education Foundation. As of this writing, the Wheel of Experts has completed 144 lessons throughout the District.
Every other month, we will be celebrating Kindness Week across AUSD. Our goal is to acknowledge and celebrate acts of kindness, respect and be compassionate to one another. We hope you will join in helping our students celebrate one another and develop the ability to be empathetic. Our next Kindness Week will take place November 26 - 30.
