    Leadership Day   Leadership Day
     
    On Thursday, January 15, William H. Frazier Elementary School hosted their 1st annual Leadership Day. Student greeters welcomed over 100 visitors to the school. Guests included parents, representatives from the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District offices, teachers and administrators from throughout Southern California, local community members, and representatives from the Panda Organization. One of Frazier’s own 6th grade students emceed the event, which included musical performances ranging from Transitional Kindergarten through 6th grade. The event also showcased student leaders sharing how Steven Covey’s Leader in Me and the 7 Habits have influenced their lives. One of Frazier’s 6th grade students expressed her gratitude for the program as she has seen less “drama” in the last 2 years, since the school began their implementation. In addition to sharing experiences with the 7 habits, student representatives from Frazier’s student leadership groups discussed their roles in clubs such as, the Green Team, Safe School Ambassadors, Student Tutors, and Creative Leaders. Lastly, visitors were given the opportunity to visit classrooms to see first hand how the Leader In Me is implemented on a daily basis. Visitors left feeling empowered and inspired by the hard working students and dedicated staff of William H. Frazier.

  • Frazier Students Go Above and Beyond

    Posted by Joe Kniseley at 1/5/2015

    Many Frazier students are going above and beyond this year, volunteering their free time to help our school community and be leaders. At the start of the school year, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students were encouraged to join a Leadership group of their choice. The enthusiasm and leadership students showed from the start instantly impressed us!

    The Frazier Green Team has been very busy this year, getting our school recycling program up and running! Every Friday students collect recyclables including: paper, bottles, and cans from each classroom. We are also working with an organization to minimize the amount of waste in landfills. As a school, we are collecting empty Capri Sun pouches, mailing them into the organization where they are then up-cycled and turned into products that we can use (pencil cases, folders, beach bags, etc.). Through their weekly recycling, as well as classroom presentations, Green Team members are continually educating our entire school about ways they can help our Earth and “Go Green!”

    Often times students learn best from one another. The Student Tutors are a great example of the powerful effect students can have on each other. Each fifth and sixth grade student tutor was paired with a primary grade classroom. Several times a week the tutors volunteer their lunch recess time to help younger students with their academics. Not only are teachers appreciative of the help, the students have fun working together. As one of our tutors commented, “This is a win-win, because I enjoy what I’m doing and the students like having me in class!”

    Frazier students recognize the importance of helping those who are in need. Our Community Bucket Fillers have been leaders in organizing and encouraging opportunities for all of our students to help others. During the Thanksgiving holiday our ‘Bucket Fillers’ organized a school-wide canned food drive. Students came early to school to collect cans from parents, and stayed late to organize the donations. Our Bucket Fillers even got 13 turkeys donated from a local grocery store! With all of our donations we were able to provide 13 families with a beautiful Thanksgiving meal!

    The Frazier school community is proud to be doing our part to help make our community (and beyond) a better place and look forward to our continued growth as leaders!

  • San Onofre School's Hour of Code

    Posted by Lillian Perez at 12/14/2014
    Programming    Cubelets
    As a way to educate students about programming, San Onofre School joined thousand of schools around the world with the Hour of Code. By 2020, it is predicated that there will be 1,000,000 unfilled computer science jobs. The Hour of Code gives students a chance to explore programming as a possible career path and to enable them to better understand the increasingly programmable world in which they live.

    In December, every kindergarten through eighth grade class engaged in a coding/programming activity. Kindergarten and first grade classes programmed Bee-Bots, robotic bees, to move from one location to another. Second and third grade students explored Cubelets by using different configurations to determine their functions. Then, they created a robotic gizmo that could think, act, and sense. Students, in fourth and fifth grade, used Lego WeDo robotics to build and program various creatures and things that could move and make sounds. Middle School students used online block programming to create music, games and rotating snowflakes.

    As a culminating activity, San Onofre School held their 2nd Annual Hour of Code for families. On the evening of December 11th, students were invited to introduce their families to all of the school’s coding activities. Parents were impressed with the programming knowledge that their children possessed. Equally impressive were the Student Tech Coaches who facilitated many of the activities.

    San Onofre School is committed to preparing students to be future-ready by integrating technology, problem solving, and design in all classrooms.
