Welcome/Benvenuti to all of our second grade students and families! I feel so honored to be joining the Seven Peaks community, along with several other new friends in second grade: Peter, Addison, Cade, Graham, Lily, and Russell. I’d also like to introduce you to our class mascot (see photo), whose passion is to sit and read with anyone and everyone. Start thinking of what we can name him!
What I value most in education is building relationships and community, both with students, parents, and our town. With a safe, structured, and welcoming classroom, we can all feel confident in taking risks, thinking critically, making mistakes, and as a result, learning and growing without limits!
On Wednesday (and the rest of the year), the classroom doors will open at 8:00 and close at 8:15 to begin instruction. Make sure to pack a healthy snack, lunch, and a big smile!
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 lower school students starting on day one. Your classroom teacher will join us on a lab tour and get-to-know me, Mr. Lenz and Mr. Seehausen. We will model design thinking as we discuss ways to make sure that the design lab is a safe, comfortable and inspiring place for all students. 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. Lower school classes will use the design lab on an as-needed basis, with the entire morning blocks reserved for lower school use.
Welcome back to school, 2nd grade students and families! I am Mrs. Sara Miller and I am so thrilled to be your music teacher this year. In music, we focus on being tuneful, artful and beatful all while having tons of fun in our well-appointed music room. 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!
Welcome Back Artists! Looking forward to a new adventure in art this year as we welcome new students and work in new spaces and create new things. We have one amazing art room now and we have worked hard to prepare it for all ages. I look forward to welcoming your young artist to the new space and am excited to start creating with them! Every year I am amazed at your students ability to problem solve, try new techniques and mediums and persevere through challenges to see their hard work pay off. See you soon! — Mrs. Santucci
