Our mountain school teams trained hard last week during teacher collaboration day! We were introduced to our new math program, Dreambox, and then we had an awesome training with PSD Mathematics Facilitator, Kelly Shank! We were excited to introduce our kids to Dreambox this week, and the kids loved it! Thanks for a great collaboration day everyone...its working in the classrooms and the kids are digging it!
Don't let Mr. Schachet fool you...he's only there for the baked potato bar! :)
And here's a few photos of our kiddos trying out the new Dreambox App...and they are loving it!
In other news, Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Z have been working hard to get us an Otterbox grant, and we are one of the finalists to present for the grant! What is this grant for? To supply a new innovation station for our school. This grant would award us almost $10,000, to purchase new technology for our school...a 3D printer, ozobots, beebots and more! To make our presentation booth the coolest one there, the kids worked hard today to create these videos in technology class about what they would do with the money, and why we should get it! We created it on flipgrid and we'd love it if you checked it out! Here is the link https://flipgrid.com/atgx0gw.
Meanwhile, things are looking awfully spooky in the library as of late! Who doesn't love a great mystery or ghost tale?!? Thats right, Halloween is just around the corner, so why not get yourself a scary book and keep yourself up reading all night!
And if scary books aren't your thing, we have a bunch of new books that were added to the "New to the Library" cart this week...so there's lots to choose from! A HUGE thanks goes out to our PTO again for donating $150.00 to our library for new books!!! The kids are delighted with all the new titles we have on our shelves! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
I will be blogging about our weekly adventures in Media and Technology, so be sure to visit often! We're always doing something cool! :)
