FUSD Adopts New Math

On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight. Numerous math programs were evaluated by the Fremont USD 2014 Math Adoption Committee. Over 60 teachers and administrators worked collaboratively, over a series of meetings spanning two months, to evaluate potential texts in the areas of: assessment, alignment to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the digital component, supports for English learners, students with disabilities and instruction in higher mathematics. Community input was also solicited. Based on the findings from the evaluation, the programs that best fit the needs for the students of Fremont Unified School District are:

·         Math Expressions ((2105) by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for grades K-5, and

·         Springboard Math (2014) by the College Board for grades 6-8

All teachers will receive professional development in the summer to help prepare them for the new adoption. All student texts are consumable which will result in a lighter load in backpacks. Families will receive digital access codes to the student online component in the fall.  

Algebra 1 is under review and the final recommendation will be presented to the Board of Education in July. 
 
 

Fremont 聯合學區採納新數學方案

教育委員會在201457日一致通過幼稚園到八年級採納新的數學課程。Fremont 聯合學區2014年數學採用委員會評估了許多數學課程。在超過60位老師和行政人員的共同合作下,二個月來經過一連串的會議,就以下方面對可能的教材進行評估:測驗,配合新的共同核心加州標準(Common Core State Standards ,簡稱CCSS) ,數位要素,對英語學習生和殘障學生的支援,以及高等數學教學。我們同時也徵求了社區的意見。根據評估的結果,最符合Fremont 聯合學區的學生需要的教材是:

·         Math Expressions (2105)-  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt出版的幼稚園-5年級教材,

·         Springboard Math (2014) - College Board出版的6-8年級教材

所有老師都將在暑假期間接受培訓,為新教材準備。所有學生課本都是消耗品,將會減輕學生書包的重量。家長們將在秋季收到學生網上學習的數位密碼。 

我們正在審查代數一,最終的建議將在七月將送交教育委員會。

Student Wellness - NON - FOOD CELEBRATIONS

The Governing Board recognized the link between student health and learning and is committed to providing a comprehensive coordinated school health program promoting healthy eating and physical activity.
 
Mission Valley Elementary welcomes and acknowledges student celebrations. The staff has embraced and recommends that all classrooms have Non-Food celebrations as a means of promting healthy eating. Examples of items that can be used for celebrations are: books, pencils, stickers, art projects, or educational games. Your child's teacher can help with ideas for your child's celebration.
 
We ask that all of our families support us in promoting healthy eating and physical activity for all of our students at Mission Valley.
