Welcome! Tuaj los! Bienvenido! Soo Dhaweyn!
Today’s children are being prepared for jobs and careers that don’t exist yet. We know that to collaborate effectively, they will need skills in communications, flexibility, creativity, and an ability to seek and understand new information. Every student at Frost Lake receives personalized instruction from co-teachers who work together to meet the needs of each child. Our students use iPads and other technology tools to engage and motivate their learning. We also offer science, social justice, art and physical education.
Our staff lead by example: by teaching respectful behavior, generosity, and acts of kindness. At Frost Lake, we believe elementary school is all about helping young children develop the strategies and confidence to continue learning. Working with an understanding of clear expectations for student performance, we celebrate our achievements and hard work. Our faculty is a family of professionals who have created the right mix of innovation, skills-based learning and standards based instruction to impact student achievement for every learner.
Racial Equity and Personalized Learning
Frost Lake focuses our work around our vision of maximizing educational achievement through racial equity and personalized learning. Through ongoing partnerships with community, allocation of building resources and staff, purposeful planning and access to previous professional development for new staff, Frost Lake works to ensure that the racial equity and technology work continues to grow and deepen as the years progress.
iPads and Voice & Choice
Teachers redefine student learning experiences by creating opportunities for students to have a voice in choosing what and how they learn. Having iPads in each student’s hands enables them to access far more resources than a traditional school library or curriculum would. iPads allow teachers to tailor standards to the interests and passions of each student. Often these choices include aspects of racial and cultural identities, such as research about home countries, or cultural traditions and folk stories.
