BOULDER OAKS GROWS
The students and staff are excited to begin another wonderful year at Boulder Oaks filled with lots of learning and growing.
We have much to look forward to in the 2018-2019 school year! This fall we will continue our work in our organic garden with Barons as we plant our first crop! We will also be working closely with the Alpine Education Foundation to bring “The Wheel of Experts” to all of our grade levels. Additionally, thanks to the support of our PTA and all of our families, we were able to add two additional Chromebook carts to our school. This purchase officially allows each of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders individual access (1:1) to a Chromebook allowing for more personalized learning.
We are especially excited for our “BOES Rock Your School Family Picnic” on Sept. 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Families are invited to join us for music and dinner on the field. They may bring a picnic dinner or purchase dinner from food trucks that will be on site. This event is open for all of the Alpine community to join us!
This year, our instructional focus will be centered around mathematics. This will be coupled with our ongoing vision of students being actively engaged in their learning. Our teachers began their work in research-based math instruction in a training before school started and will continue the work throughout the school year with ongoing trainings and coaching.
The staff at BOES is looking forward to a magical school year filled with fun and engaging learning experiences.
CREEKSIDE SUPPORTS STUDENTS
Creekside Early Learning Center (CELC) is the place to be! Our unique campus services preschool, transitional kindergarten, early admittance kindergarten, and kindergarten students. CELC offers a Spanish Immersion Program in preschool, TK, and kindergarten.
CELC has many amazing programs and resources to support our students’ academics including, a state of the art computer lab, Kagan instructional strategies, Pathways Reading Rotations, and ST math. ST math is an instructional program that builds a deep conceptual understanding of math. Thanks to Alpine Education Foundation, CELC students have access to the music component with ST math this year. In addition, teachers will be receiving professional development in the area of math. Resources include supports to increase and improve math reasoning through number talks.
In addition to a strong academic program, CELC also believes in supporting students’ social and emotional needs. This year, the CELC staff will be using a researched-based program, Sanford Harmony. The fun, engaging curriculum includes lessons and games that build strong classroom communities where all students feel connected, comfortable, and ready to learn. The program helps students appreciate diversity, confidently express ideas, understand other’s perspectives, and solve problems.
CELC is also proud to use a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS). PBIS is a positive, proactive approach to supporting student behaviors. PBIS encourages good behavior. Students learn about behavior just like they do other subjects. Additional supports utilized at our school include restorative practices and a growth mindset approach to learning. CELC also has an amazing part-time school counselor. Creekside has an incredible, highly qualified staff to support the success of our students. We have a shared vision of universal achievement for ALL students.
