At DuBray Middle, 8th-graders in App Creators classes are coding with conditionals. The Sphero Bolt had to travel to the 8th grade office, hit the door and say HELLO. Distance, speed and time were all factors, along with angles. Collaboration makes things go! #FZEquipToExcel

Kindergarteners jumped into addition and subtraction by helping frogs into and out of their ponds. Working together helps them express their mathematical thinking and learn to listen to ideas from others. We are just a month away from Kindergarten enrollment for 2024!

How do we get where we want to go? We start with where we are. Then we set goals and track our progress. At Emge Elementary, first graders have a class goal. Students take turns meeting with the teacher, Mr. Lovelace, during independent reading time and are tracking their individual growth, as well as their growth as a group. In third grade, Ms. Winistoerfer’s class sits down for an assessment to measure how much they’ve grown so far this year. Raising readers and problem solvers. #FZEquipToExcel
Why are flags at half-staff? By order of the governor, flags in Missouri will fly at half-staff until sunset Feb. 10, 2024, in honor of former Senator Jean Carnahan. See the proclamation: bit.ly/3HUxHyh
Every day we learn and grow. Part of learning to track goals is measuring that growth! Today was a very Happy 100 Day for students and staff as they dressed up and measured out how much they've grown as learners, citizens and leaders this school year.

We've been celebrating our Counselors and Mental Health Professionals this week, but can't find a better way to say "thank you" to them than what one mom shared in a Blue Note to her school counselor last semester. Mrs. Luley is always a calm and supportive force at MRE. Every time I see her, I feel calmer myself! One day at home I (41 year old parent) was having a bit of a mental breakdown from overwhelming thoughts and emotions. My 2nd grader came over and taught me breathing exercises. They really helped and I asked her how she knew them and she said that Mrs. Luley taught them to her. Wow, what an impact she has had on our students that it trickles up to the parents! Thank you for being awesome Mrs. Luley! Thank you!

What does it mean to build an environment to Educate, Empower and Equip Students to Excel? For fourth graders at Rock Creek Elementary it means feeling confident enough to guide your classmates through the math you’ve been working on. In Mrs. Beseau’s room, plenty of hands went up when she asked for a volunteer to walk the class through their mathematical thinking and reasoning as they applied the standard algorithm that they had been discussing in class. Want to learn more about empowering our students in math? Check out this FORTiTUDE podcast: bit.ly/3SgG247
Thanks to all of the families at our high school curriculum nights! Next up? Middle schools. These events are just one of the many supports available for families of students making a leap to the next level next fall. Together we Educate, Empower and Equip Students to Excel! #FZEquipToExcel
Unpredictable. Inconsistent. These weather words wouldn’t have slowed our Top 3 spellers at the annual FZ Elementary Spelling Bee. After 23 rounds, Maeve finished the district-wide event by correctly spelling “escarpment”. Congrats to Maeve, Dharshan & James, the Top 3!
