Personalized Learning in Action
We've officially welcomed the Class of 2034 to Spring Lake Park Schools. We know the most important things these students will learn in our schools is who they are as a learner, how they learn and where they want to go as they move through their career at SLP and beyond. For this year's Kindergarteners, that learning started at Kinder Camp before the school year began. The goal? To set each student up for K-12 success starting day one.
Elementary school students are venturing in the wilds of the Wargo Nature Center this year to explore nature’s mysteries on real-world, interdisciplinary learning adventures.
"I try to personalize learning by letting my students know how important their identity is to me and that I want to see them for every part of who they are because they matter and are valued in our space. I constantly seek out opportunities to learn more about my students' cultures and where their family comes from."
We're in the third year of evolving our approach to students' social, emotional and behavioral health to strengthen how we develop students' social and emotional skills and get students' the help they need when they need it.
Spring Lake Park High School students in the Business and Innovation class stepped into the Shark Tank last week to pitch their unique business ideas.
