   PROBLEM BASED LEARNING

 

             

All students are thinking about how to ensure equal access of our shared spaces to all stakeholders in our school and local community.  Fifth grade students developed solutions to ensure our outdoor spaces have equitable access. Third and fourth grade students are redesigning our shared library and computer lab space given the changes in how we use technology across our school. First and second grade students worked on the best use of outdoor spaces specifically in the garden area and establishedrules for students to follow to maintain our beautiful garden.

 

Be sure to ask your child about their team’s solution.
