Together We are Complete!

Forest Hill is definitely a place where we are more “complete”.

As students enter Ms. Nulty’s TK classroom, they cannot help but be reminded that they are all unique individuals, but that together they are “complete”.  Part of our mission here at Forest Hill is to not only teach our children the basic 3 R’s, but when we work collaboratively in a kind and accepting way, we become stronger and more “complete”.

Story Time with the San Jose Police Department

San Jose Police Department came to Forest Hill for story Time.

The students in Mrs. Ross’s 3rd grade class enjoyed story time with Lieutenant Kendra Nunes from the San Jose Police Department. The children enjoyed listening to “Oh the Places You Will Go” by Dr. Seuss. After the story, our students were able to ask her questions about being a police officer. It was definitely a positive experience for our students to see how the SJPD is constantly giving back to the community and being positive role models.

Design Thinking Approach Spreads to More CUSD Schools

The approach to teaching core academics is energizing students and teachers!

“Design thinking is an approach to teaching core academics that will develop our students’ skills as collaborative, innovative, self-directed, empathetic critical thinkers who can be successful in their yet-to-be-defined future,” says Shelly Viramontez, Superintendent of Campbell Union School District (CUSD).

design thinking process stepsDesign thinking, a process for empathy-based creative problem-solving, is spreading to classrooms across the district. While it is a primary focus of the district’s new Campbell School of Innovation, more teachers in other schools also are using it. Over the past year, nearly 25% of the district’s more than 380 teachers have experienced the design thinking process and how to incorporate it into their lessons.  (See related story about first-grade teacher Megan Delaye.)

“Students are becoming more energized about owning their learning, and their teachers are seeing student achievement rise as they incorporate more of these relevant problem-solving projects into their instruction,” says Kami Thordardson, CUSD’s Director of Innovation & Digital Learning. She says CUSD Equity Coaches have been working this year with teachers from several schools, both groups and individuals, and all teachers had the option to participate in a design project through the district wide library design project last year.

“We’re preparing students for jobs that haven’t even been imagined yet,” says Viramontez. “Design thinking is one of the ways we can educate students to their highest potential.”

Zachary Margulies, Forest Hill alumni and current senior at Westmont High School spent his weekend building three flower boxes for Forest Hill as part of his Eagle Scout project. It is always a proud moment when our former students come to visit, but it is especially nice to see the path they are taking and the way they give back to their community. Best of luck to Zachary as he goes off to college next fall.
