  • McDougle Middle School Students Explore Food Trucks and Social Justice

    The enticing smells wafting from the elective hallway at McDougle Middle School (MMS) on Friday, December 14, stopped some people in their tracks. But few people knew that the aromas were part of a culminating celebration that started and ended with pupusas, the national culinary treasure from El Salvador. Students at MMS have spent the past few weeks learning about food truck design and marketing, global cuisines and a host of social justice issues, all wrapped into a unit celebrating the local nonprofit, Pupusas 4 Education, and its parent business, So Good Pupusas.

  • Hour of Code Spreads Excitement about Digital Learning

    Since December 3, Hour of Code sessions have taken place in elementary classrooms across the district: children gathered in circles on the carpet, watching as teachers and technology facilitators modeled coding activities. Once the demonstrations were finished, children practiced new steps in programming with devices like Cubettos, Bee-Bots and Spheros. The level of joy and energy was high, and very few of the students even realized they were learning, instead of “just” having fun.
