SpanishHola, mi nombre es Susana “Susy” Rivera. I am so excited to have your children in my class! As a native Puerto Rican, I am extremely proud of my heritage and I am thrilled to share some of my culture with my class. We are going to learn Spanish through activities such as: singing, rhythm, playing some instruments like “maraca & güiro”, reading bilingual books, art projects, color, shapes, numbers and more. Some of my background includes, theater and drama which I will integrate as part of my teaching technique. I am looking forward to work with your children as they learn about the beauty of Spanish culture. Bienvenidos!Mrs. Rivera
ScienceFor the 2022-20223 school year the Physical Education/Nutrition Science class at the Round Rock campus will focus on “functional training” as well as the fundamental gross and fine motor skills needed for physical and mental development. Some other tasks that will be emphasized include sportsmanship, teamwork and cooperation to create a better understanding of integrity. All of these will be used to help build your student’s character, strength, agility, balance, problem solving and coordination for everyday life activities. As fun “functional” fitness increases so will the understanding of health-related vs. skill related fitness.   In addition, we will be looking at the ways the foods we put into our bodies affects not only our physical health but also how it can affect our mental health, mood, energy and brain function.   We might even do some cooking demonstrations.  Science you can eat!Mrs. Arntson
