#FZSD salutes our Veterans. Thank you for your service to our nation.
Checking in at Early Childhood when new Assistant Superintendent, John Schulte, visited Amy Steinhoff's Pre-K class. Schulte oversees Student Personnel Services and sat with students as they shared an important part of their day when they check-in with each other in Steinhoff's room. The daily activities help students create bonds with each other through playful, one-on-one interactions. The variety promotes language and literacy skills, increases attention span and decreases power struggles. "Our students and staff at the Early Childhood Center were having so much fun during our visit,” Schulte says. “We are fortunate to have such caring adults helping our littles learn, grow, and play!" Helping our littlest learners strengthen communication skills and take their first steps toward being collaborators. The Fort Zumwalt Early Childhood Center: Where Children Learn Through Play!
#TeacherProud It was a great day of learning across the Fort, where students were off but our #LifelongLearners were hard at work in Professional Development. Growing #FZSD teachers grows #FZSD students. Our teachers led colleagues in sessions ranging from English Language Arts to student wellness. Guest speakers were on hand to lead larger sessions, such as the one from Dr. Amber Selking on the power of a positive mindset. Commitment. Collaboration. #FZAllMeansAll @MOEducation @GovMikeParson @EducationPlusStl

Checking in with FZS Industrial Tech and Engineering. FZ students can begin exploring woods, metals and mass media in seventh grade, but high school course offerings expand quickly. Students in the drafting pathway begin with the basics of creating mechanical or architectural drawings by hand and on industry standard software. Capstone projects can include professional certification in 3D Solidworks. Students in woods engineering begin with safety basics. Once proficient, Woods I students create a range of projects that introduce them to tools and techniques they can refine and apply to capstone projects in later courses. Metals engineering students begin with safety basics and, once proficient, create a series of projects that introduce them to tools and techniques they have the opportunity to master in higher level classes. Learn more about Industrial Tech and Engineering in our high school course guide and at ZumwaltApprenticeships.com.

Checking in at JL Mudd Elementary, where Technology teacher Abigail Hawkins is marking #DigitalCitizenship week, as are her peers across #FZSD. Hawkins works with Kindergarteners, first-graders and second-graders to build technical skills that will help them in their academics and in their daily interactions online. Typing, creating presentations, how to make good choices online. You can learn more about our elementary Technology classes, and what our students know about being good digital citizens, in the newest FORTiTUDE podcast: bit.ly/3yMomVp

It's National Principals Appreciation Month and, though they'd rather we focused on teaching and learning than on them, they deserve a HUGE S/O and THANKS! Instructional Leader. Plant Manager. Teacher. PAL. Just a few of the hats they wear daily. Thanks for all you do.
