  4. After the meeting, Jackson said, "The process is complete. Time to move forward in the best interests of the school district."
  5. Next came a few presentations.
  6. I'll try to explain it: they kind of linked thumbs together and flapped their fingers like a butterfly's wings.
  7. In "shark attack," gym teacher Stephen Ferko hands out "surf boards" to all the students and at some point calls "shark." Students then have to jump up on the board. He said it's not about being the fastest to jump up but making sure everyone gets on their boards together.
  8. To follow up the "resiliency" presentation, administration provided a look into the hybrid learning model being utilized at Spring City Elementary School.
  9. Hybrid learning involves students going through three different kinds of stations: one is independent learning, another is collaborative and the third is direct, where the teacher directly instructs and works with kids.
