It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Mission: To afford every student the ability to achieve at high levels in order to have every opportunity for success.
Focus: Indian Peaks has an instructional focus of Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) along with Early Transitional Bilingual Instruction. The STEM Instructional Focus is the foundation of the high-quality research based instructional programming that is offered to all students PreK through grade five. The natural convergence of the sciences, partnered with literacy, provides students with an outstanding foundation of essential skills while integrating the development of problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills and the ability to collaborate to enhance learning.
Our Early Transitional Bilingual Instruction offers Spanish literacy instruction K-3rd grade to students whose dominant native language is Spanish. Students receive literacy instruction in Spanish, which includes reading and writing instruction. They also receive 60 minutes daily of English literacy instruction, affording them the necessary skills to be successfully bi-literate in Grade Three. Math, Science, and Social Studies are taught in English with Spanish support as necessary. Our goal for our bilingual instruction students is that they will be successfully bi-literate by third grade. Teachers provide differentiated, rigorous instruction to all students in order to prepare them for continued academic success.
Achieving Academic Success: In partnership with our community, Indian Peaks is committed to give every student the ability to achieve at high levels in order to have every opportunity for success. To achieve this, the school offers a wide range of learning opportunities that include:
