Welcome Back Parade iLEAD Agua Dulce

Dear Families,

It was so much fun to see all of you at our first Car Parade of the year! We hope the school supply bag was helpful as well. We will continue to build our community events by modeling what we want our learners to do: Be creative, problem-solve, and begin with the end in mind.

We have a lot of fun school events coming up over the next few weeks. We hope you will take advantage of our first Scholastic Book Fair and Chipotle Takeout Fundraiser. Stay tuned for more events coming soon!

As part of our project-based learning program, we believe it’s essential to connect learners to “experts in the field.” It helps learners understand various aspects of their current projects and gives them a broader view of different careers. If you would like to share career knowledge with our learners, please reach out to nicole.higdon@ileadaguadulce.org so we can create an inventory of people we can call on to be guest speakers. For our first project, we are looking for people who work in the toy industry.

Finally, don’t forget that this week our learners will be MAP assessing. The MAP assessment is incredibly important, as it gives us specific data on where learners need extra support and where they need to be challenged more. The data will help us personalize your child’s learning.

We hope you have a wonderful week!

Loose parts inspire imaginations and spark creativity on children’s own termsRead More

What Is an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP)?

iLEAD Agua Dulce embraces the whole child, focusing on both social-emotional and academic skills. After our beginning-of-the-year assessments and in lieu of the traditional parent-teacher conference, the learners, facilitators, and parents/guardians collaborate annually to create an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). ILPs help to guide instruction and social-emotional aspects for each learner. Everyone works together toRead More
