For the 2017-2018 school year, students in grades 2-5 will meet with Mrs Ligman (2-3) or Ms. Yada (4-5) one day a week to receive direct instruction in all subjects. Students will use Acellus, an online program, supplemented by the Palm Springs Unified School District's curriculum, Prodigy (for math) and Razkids for reading and MyAccess for writing. Students needing additional support will be able to attend school on additional days and meet with the teacher as necessary. Students will eat lunch at school together.
We will have monthly field trips and weekly meetings to work on student portfolios, digital storytelling, and STEAM activities (Science, Techology, Engineering, Art, and Math.) This year we're excited to incorporate digital storytelling in the classroom with the students.
