Hello incoming 6th graders! We are super excited to see all the familiar faces of our returning students and we look forward to welcoming our new 7 peaks families into our community. We will greet students next Wednesday at 7:50 in the commons where kids can reorient themselves to opening their assigned locker. We will also let kids know which homeroom they are in and direct them to that location to start the day. All school supplies will be provided by 7 Peaks, so do not worry about showing up with anything but a positive, inquisitive attitude and a lunch. We look forward to seeing you all!
Bienvenidos! I am looking forward to seeing you all following a super busy and fun-filled summer. I’m excited to start off this year with you and look forward to sharing our new Spanish classroom, which I designed with each one of you in mind! We have a great year planned with a lot of new vocabulary to learn, conversations to share and cultures to experience! Hasta luego, amigos! See you next week. — Sra. Jylan Maloy
The Design Lab is welcoming all upper school students starting on day one. Their classroom teacher will join the students in a lab tour and some get-to-know Mr. Lenz and Mr. Seehausen activities. We will model design thinking as we discuss ways to make sure that the design lab is a safe, comfortable and inspiring place for them. A common question regarding design thinking is about curriculum: It is important to emphasize that design thinking is intentionally not a stand-alone curriculum. The goal is to integrate these concepts and skills into existing units of study. My role as lead design thinking teacher is to help classroom teachers find meaningful and relevant ways to incorporate design. Upper school students will be in the design lab three times per week during the afternoon, with additional time available in the morning if the lower school is not using the lab.
Welcome back to school, 6th grade students and families! I am Mrs. Sara Miller and I am so thrilled to be your music teacher this year. This year in music, we will be exploring more “project based” learning in the music room as we experiment with homemade instruments, dramatic play and unique rhythm learning and composing – all while having tons of fun in our well-appointed music room. 6th grade is tons of fun in music and I can’t wait to get started! I teach Pre-K through 8th grade music at Seven Peaks as well as enjoy cooking, reading and walking in my spare time. I have a fun family of 7 that also keeps me hopping, with kids ages 16-14-10-8-5. I look forward to getting to know each one of your families – feel free to stop by the music room any time and introduce yourself!
So excited to have the 5th grade as part of our upper school this year! Welcome back to art. Looking forward to a year full of fun and creativity. My name is Hope Macauley, and for those of you who have had me in the past, my new last name will take some getting use to for all of us, me included! This year in art we will be creating with a wide range of materials and will be working through a number of art movements, looking at the masters within each. We have lots of new and exciting things going on this year from exploring and learning about our new glass kiln to utilizing the design lab as an extension of the art room! See you soon.
