Dear Parents, 

We hope the snow was a fun surprise for your kiddos this morning and provided a little distraction in this time of isolation. 

As most of you have probably heard, the Governor has issued a mandate that schools remain closed through April 17.  While this means campus is closed to students, we will do our best to provide educational materials for you to use at home.  We realize that not everyone has internet in their homes.  Please let us know if you need more academic support that does not require the internet.  

We are doing our best to navigate these unfamiliar times.  Please let us know if you need anything.

It's Your Turn to Build
What can you build? Check out these plans for building simple machines at home.  Consider using recycled items to build your creation.  Post a photo of your creation on our Family Facebook page!

Engineering Scavenger Hunt

What simple machines can you find in your house? 

  • Lever
  • Wheel
  • Ramp
  • Pulley

How many of each can you find?  Can you collect data and create a graph to show your findings??


  • Check out this website called EngineerGirl.  Can you imagine a career in engineering?
  • Look for more information on other famous female engineers including Emily Roebling.  Can you make a video telling us about your discoveries?  

Recipe of the Day

Chicken Enchilada Roll Ups

It's a bit of a stretch, but try creating these mini wheels for lunch today!!


  • 2 (8-oz) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works well)
  • 1 (10-oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, well drained
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 8 burrito sized tortillas


    1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients (except tortillas) until well blended.
    2. Spread about ½ cup of the mixture over the entire surface of a tortilla. Roll up tightly. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
    3. Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes. Also, if you chill longer they will be easier to cut.
    4. Slice into 1/2 inch slices with a serrated knife to prevent crushing and serve.
