Lebo Makers Reimagine Learning


This fall, the elementary schools opened their reimagined libraries with new Matt's Maker Spaces. From the moment you enter the makerspaces you can feel the creative energy as students problem solve how to make a marble travel the farthest or figure out how to build a structure to support an object. In this space science, engineering, art, communication, math and technology all intersect as students work in teams or individually to try out new ideas.

What's Your One Word?

At the school district's opening day convocation with staff, Dr. Steinhauer introduced the concept of "One Word" from the book "One Word that will change your life" by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton and Jimmy Page @getoneword. He invited everyone to pick one word to be the focus for the next twelve months. It is a simple, thoughtful and purposeful action that begins by unplugging the noise, quieting the mind and creating the space to think about what type of person we want to be, how we want to live our life and what impact do we want to have on others.
