Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 243

This program supports our student achievement initiatives. We value your longstanding partnership from Semblar.  This year, students in grades 3-5 were once again excitingly engaged in a variety of cognitive problem-solving challenges. During this time, they were required to read and comprehend complex task and then work with a team to execute a solution for the task.  These challenges continue to build a mindset that is centered on cooperation, team building, creative thinking and coping with frustration levels.  Continuous exposure to such activities have had a great impact on students as they prepare to be lifelong learners.  78% of these students made progress on their reading scores from fall to winter.
