That feeling when your Monster comes to life! 1st graders at Salazar drew monsters, which were then passed along to Dr. Gerstein's 5th graders, who brought them to life! Students used felt, filled them with stuffing and sewed them together with yarn! The 5th graders then interviewed the 1st graders about their monsters. They took the audio from the interview and coded the monsters with Makey Makey so when the students touched parts of the monster, it repeated part of their interview! To learn more about the project, you can visit Dr. Gerstein's blog about the project here: https://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2023/03/04/monster-project-using-makey-makeys-and-scratch/

Due to snow and icy road conditions across the District that would prohibit the safe transportation of students to school, all schools will be closed. This is not a remote learning day. All after school and evening activities are canceled.
Due to snow and ice in some parts of the district, all schools will be on a 2-hour delay today, March 17th, 2023, to provide additional time for buses to safely transport students to schools. This means that buses will run 2 hours later than during normal times. If you drop your child off at school, please remember that staff will also be on a two-hour delay. Full day Pre-K programs are also on a two hour delay. Morning Pre-K programs have been canceled. Afternoon Pre-K programs will operate on a regular schedule.
On Friday, Salazar Elementary's second-grade teacher Ms. Darlene Fortier debuted a Kamishibai Theatre in the Salazar library! Kamishibai theatre is a form of Japanese storytelling that combines spoken narration with picture cards. While narrating a story, the performer or storyteller uses a wooden stage with two doors, known as a "butai," to reveal the picture cards one at a time. The cards are often brightly illustrated and contain scenes from the story being told. Kamishibai originated in the early 20th century as a form of street theatre in Japan, where performers would use the technique to entertain children and sell candy or other small items. The stories told through kamishibai often had moral lessons or were based on popular folklore. The Threate was made possible with the support of Partners in Education!
