  • 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.

  • Little Military Hero at San Onofre School

    Posted by Lillian Perez at 12/8/2014
     Little Hero
    San Onofre School is full of little military heroes, but one in particular, Alexis Salgado, has been recognized as Star 94.1 and SDCCU’s “Little Military Hero” for the month of October. Her teacher, Miss Alison Halpern, heard on the radio that they were holding a contest where you can go online and nominate a military child to receive a new laptop that can then be used to connect with a deployed parent via Skype, email or, in this case, blog. To Miss Halpern’s surprise, just 1 week after her submission of all 22 of her students she got a response from the “Jesse in the Morning” show producer to inform her that her little Alexis Salgado was chosen!
     
    In Miss Halpern’s first grade class each student has a personal blog that they use to share their learning. This blog is especially special for Alexis because her father is currently deployed on a ship. Staff Sargent Salgado is a forward observer (MOS 086) in the United States Marine Corp. Alexis has been missing her father more and more so this has been making her time at home difficult. You would never know because she comes to school everyday with a huge smile and wears that smile all day.
     
    One morning Miss Halpern and Alexis were extremely excited to see that he had found her blog! The following is the comment that Staff Sargent Salgado left to his little girl.
     
    “Hi Alexis! It’s daddy from the pirate ship. I finally found your page baby. I’m so proud of my little girl. You are so sweet and kind to everyone you have a good heart and daddy is very proud of you. Thank you for listening to mommy because she does a lot for us. Thank you for being a good example to your sister Lucy because she looks up to you. Daddy is safe on the boat. I’m always thinking of you, Lucy, and Mommy. I love you with all my heart I miss you so much I can’t wait to give you a big hug and many kisses. Remember, always say please and thank you, and keep on doing a good job on your homework.
    I love you,
    Daddy”
     
    The morning Miss Halpern read this comment to Alexis will forever be with her. The smile on her face and the look in her eyes was truly priceless!
     
    The radio show invited Alexis, her mom and Miss Halpern to the studio to take pictures, make a video, have an interview and most exciting of all…present Alexis with a brand new laptop! The experience was all very exciting. She was asked a few questions that she answered in a sound studio, they took promotional pictures and then they were able to have an interview with Jesse and Delena. Miss Halpern, Alexis and her family want to thank Star 94.1 and SDCCU for recognizing these little heroes in our community.
