Loved seeing Kindergarten COLLABORATE with P.E. to develop algorithms and decompose problems as they launch their Force and Motion project based learning experience this week!

Happy President's Day! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Don't forget, Loudoun County Public Schools are closed today for the holiday.

[02/16/20]   DON'T FORGET!

SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED TOMORROW (MONDAY) FOR PRESIDENT'S DAY.

It's been a busy week at the Pool!

Kindergarten really showed their age for the 100th day of school, first grade celebrated the 101st day PAW-fectly, and everyone shared a little love to wrap things up on Valentines Day.

W.E. can't wait to see everyone TUESDAY and see what's in store for next week.

#PBLworks #WaxpoolES

Happy Valentines Day! πŸ’™πŸ§‘

The admin team spread some LOVE today bringing some well deserved donuts, coffee, and snacks to each staff member's room!

The Piranha staff gets together to talk about ways W.E. can continue to deepen student learning through the use of Computational Thinking.

We also have some EXCITING events we plan to announce soon!

Computational thinking is the problem-solving process that lies at the heart of computer science and coding. Virginia is the first state in the nation to create…

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I have to say we LOVE third grade's Periodic Table of famous Americans who contributed much to the world we live in. πŸ’™πŸ§‘
