As we start our school year, we look forward to exploring the opening unit with all classes, K-8, for Our Wonderful World of Color, where students will explore all subject areas through the Big Idea of “Color” and all of its amazing facets. We will open virtually, with Google Classroom as our learning management system (LMS) for our students’ online experience. We look forward to improved health numbers in El Paso County so that, along with Colorado Springs School District 11, we can phase into adding in-person time. We have all-year, all-virtual available for all of our students, and our hope and plan is that, with improved health numbers, we can begin to transition to adding in-person days at the end of October for all of our students who wish to be onsite. Our opening unit will last the first two weeks, and then we will use assessment data to create the ongoing virtual math classes and reading/writing classes that are leveled for students’ needs. Students area enrolled in classes for any level of math or reading/writing that they need, regardless of their enrolled grade level.
