Trailblazing Dolphin Runners

Track & field / cross country students have been meeting every Friday until 5:15 p.m. We are working on improving skills such as pacing, trail running, high jump, throwing events such as javelin, shot put and discus; series and recovery time, core workouts, stretching routines, etc.

In addition, since April an increasing number of students and parents have been meeting every Sunday morning to train at Parque Metropolitano. In this stunning location, the group has been running an average of 5k through trails surrounded by tropical vegetation and fauna, often spotting agoutis (“neques”), coatis (“gato solo”), sloths and hearing the roars of howling monkeys.

These students will participate in the race NB Aullador on June 11. If you are interested in joining us or want to have more information, please contact Mr. Sanchis (HS) or Mr. Binder (MS). Flyer here.

Art Meets Tech at the PK3 and 4 Art Show

This morning I had the pleasure of attending the PK art show. While I was looking around at all the beautiful pieces of art, I noticed some QR codes next to some of the expositions. To my absolute delight, I realized that once the code was scanned you could see video and pictures of the student creating their pieces of art.

As Principal Mrs. Garcia explains, "This is part of delivering on our curriculum teaching and learning goals. We wanted to make the learning these students experienced visible. So the students were encouraged to document the creative process with help from their teachers. Creating video and pictures to show what they learned during the creative process. From the initial idea to the final design, those visiting the PK art show can truly appreciate all the work these students put in to creating these unique pieces of art. Beyond being wonderfully creative, the resulting exposition is itself a visual representation of the learning done this semester."
