Hurricane Harvey Donation Drive Update
Hurricane Harvey might have left a path of destruction but it also united a nation to act and help each other. Laguna Road Choir Foundation took to action and held a donation drive. Each classroom from Laguna Road Elementary opened there hearts and wallets to assemble a care package to be donated to Hurricane Harvey Relief. Nineteen Boxes were delivered to Fullerton City Hall and accepted by Coast to Coast Foundation who will transport the care packages to Houston. Mayor pro tem Doug Chaffee and council member Jose Silval were present in the event supporting the drive. Jose Silval said, "It is always a great surprise to see a group of people go above and beyond what is expected and proud that our community can take action." A heartfelt Thank You to the wonderful families at Laguna Road School for their support.
STEM and Innovation At Laguna Road
            Third grade was in the STEM Lab this week to learn all about herd mentality. Every student broke into herds of different size and with differing numbers of “young” and “adult” members represented by small and large tools for the activity. Through simulations of food-gathering exercises the students learned about positive and negative factors that affect animals that choose to live in herds. The exercise also allowed the students to problem-solve in real time by finding multiple solutions to aid the “young” members in getting more food back to their home. This was a wonderful exercise to challenge the student’s perspectives and motivate them to think in new ways they often would not have to.
Tech Corner
These 3rd grade students are using their iPads to access reading passages that are at their Lexile level during PALS. PALS stands for Peer Assisted Learning Strategies, and provides guidelines for students to read with each other. The iPads allow each child to access a text that is appropriate to them and their reading level.
Writing Workshop
These 3rd grade students are working on "stretching the big thing that happened"--students are adding details to their stories to make their small moments more detailed. Students add details about who was there, what happened, why it happened, when it happened, etc. to make their small moments come to life.
