Media Center News

During the past couple of weeks many students have had their first chance to check out books from our school collection. This is an exciting event for all! Our younger students feel very “grown up” as they independently choose their book and have the personal responsibility of caring for that book. Students in Grades K, 1 and 2 are spending time discussing how to take care of library books. We especially stress the importance of keeping books clean and dry. Snacks or beverages often are both placed in a backpack together. Please consider separating one or the other in a zip-lock bag for protection. Here is a list of ideas for family conversation around the topic of how to take good care of books we borrow from the school media center: I can use clean hands when I read a book.

MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

MyStop is a web-based application available to all Eastern Carver County Schools parents and students that lets them access live bus GPS information. Using a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, parents and students can view the current location of buses on routes and the estimated time of arrival at their neighborhood bus stops. This simple and informative tool gives parents, guardians and students the ability to know approximately where the school bus is on its route. MyStop displays the school bus’s approximate location on a map, as well as the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a specific student’s bus stop. The school bus’s location is automatically updated every few minutes, and the ETA is recalculated to accommodate any delays due to traffic while the bus is en route. Please note: does not work for after-school activity routes since there are no students assigned to them and no set stops. Learn more about MyStop and how to download the app on the district’s Transportation... Continue reading MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

Planting Seeds for Life-Long Learning: Our School Garden

Every year, students, parents, teachers, (and even family members!), pick up a shovel and put on their gardening gloves to help prepare our school garden for growing season. Our school garden is a source of learning for students throughout the summer and into the school year. Teachers from a variety of studies often incorporate our school garden into Standards-Based lesson plans. Not only do students enjoy the school garden and have fun taking care of it, but it also benefits our curriculum, the environment, the physical, social, and emotional health of students, as well as the community. Thanks to those who help make our school garden... Continue reading Planting Seeds for Life-Long Learning: Our School Garden
