Dear Friends and Families of Los Ranchos,
We have had many changes in our curriculum and standards over the last few years. Science is included in these changes. The new standards are called Next Generation Science Standards. Our district adopted NGSS last year and our teachers are implementing parts of the new curriculum this year. These standards will impact your children kindergarten through twelfth grades. We are fortunate to have Tristan Shorba, an experienced and passionate Science teacher, lead our professional learning and planning for our district. Mr. Shorba will be sharing information about NGSS at our next Parent Coffee on Friday, February 24th at 8:30 a.m. in the library. I hope you can join us.
Have a lovely weekend.
