Happening in Our District
Taking Time to Set Up Tech Tools
Parents at Rockbrook Elementary made time to set up iPads for student use during the first days of the 2014-15 school year. áStudents will useáthis new technology tool throughout the school day ináall curriculum areas. á
Making a Donation, Making a Difference
Elementary schools in the district have a new curriculum for reading and writing this year. áStaff at Sunset Hills Elementary researched how to put their older and outdatedábooks, teacher's guides, and other materials to good use. áThe school connected with Reading Drive for Africa, aáprogram committed to promoting literacy in Cameroon by providing access to books for children in the primary and secondary schools. áThe materials were loaded out and shipped on Aug. 8
á
A Peaceful (and Colorful) Playground
Students at Westgate Elementary are now learning new recess games with the start of the 2014-15 school year. áThe new colorful patterns on the school's playground are designs from the Peaceful Playground Program, which the school is now part of. áPeaceful Playground reduces bulling and exclusion, promotes fair play, and builds good sportsmanship. áPhysical Education teacher Reed Weber said he believes Westgate is the first school in the area to use Peaceful Playground.

á
Reading Never Gets Old
Even with all the technology schools have, some things never change . . . like reading a book to a class. áWestgate kindergarten teacheráChrys Wolf-Schneider does just that with her students.á
