Week of February 19
Final project update: It is so fun seeing you all get your projects off the ground! Remember, May 5th is the deadline to turn in your final website and an end-of-year video. We will provide guidance and reminders but the rubric and guidelines are found on our Curriculum page.
Last week a team asked: It is difficult to get field trips to locations that are not already approved by the district but we want to go to a local retirement home. We know we can host the event at school but the retirement communities said it would be difficult for the citizens to come out to the school. We are trying to think of solutions but wondered if you had any thoughts or idea that might have worked in the past.
