"Greeking Out" at DLE

October 28, 2022

4th and 5th grade students in Mrs. Flowers’ class at Dune Lakes Elementary School ended their Ancient Greece Unit with a “Greeking Out” party. Throughout the course of the unit, students learned about the history, architecture, people, and lifestyles of Ancient Greece through various research projects and hands-on engineering activities. At the party, students performed skits about Ancient Greece and a guest chef taught students how to make the Greek dish, hummus. 

Superintendent Hughes stopped to check on a bus parked and to surprise students on their way home from a day of high expectations and learning.  Sharon Santiago was writing a note to a parent when the Superintendent stopped to check on them.  The students were excited and could not resist the opportunity to have their photo taken.  EPIC is the way!  Get On-Go On!

Mrs. Emily Kent tasked her AVID elective students with the mission to construct a complete, freestanding ring using only a can of Pringles and their ingenuity. It was up to each group to use AVID’s Goal, Plan, Action (GPA) framework when approaching the task. Afterwards, students debriefed to reflect on their collaborative strengths and identify areas for improvement.


One tribe, one mission, building RELATION-CHIPS and collaboration in AVID.
