Design Thinking Projects

Elementary students have been busy with design thinking projects integrated across various curricula areas. Second graders designed birds based on the needs of a bird in the San Francisco Bay wetlands. 4th graders are creating models of various California Missions and 5th graders are writing and producing videos about  “change agents.”

Important - Student Safety

When dropping off or picking up students, please do not park in the fire lane behind the first grade classrooms. This lane is for traffic to drop off or pick up and continue on. At no time should you park and exit your car in that lane. Please communicate this information to caregivers as well. This is a safety issue and everyone is asked to please abide by the rules. Thank you for your kind cooperation in keeping the traffic flowing and for putting a priority on the safety needs of our students.
