- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
STEM at Northridge Elementary is more than what we do, it's who we are. Teachers collaborate with each other and with the STEM Coordinator to plan Integrated STEM Plans that make learning more authentic and engaging for students. The Design Thinking process is used by teachers and students to solve problems that range from fixing a part of our school to developing a better understanding of vocabulary. Communication and collaboration among students is vital and purposefully planned for each lesson and activity as students are given voice and choice in many of their activities. All teachers also strive to add to the authenticity of student learning by making connections for students with the community, whether that is a field trip to a university or lessons that teach students about what civil engineers do. Every year brings new challenges for everyone at Northridge, to which we ask, "How might we design a way to get better?"
