Seventeen 5th and 6th grade students earned a field trip to UCLA to visit the school of Architecture and Urban Design. They were attending the midterm presentations given by the Architecture students. The Mt. View students were amazed by what they saw and many are starting to plan out their own University programs. Marlene Gomez wanted to know how long it took the Architecture students to make a complete model and how were they able to include so much detail. Krysten Burton, daughter of Mrs. Allbeck, showed the students how the 3D printer worked on a project that she is currently working on. All of the students who went were impressed by the overall experience of visiting UCLA and were starting to see themselves as college bound!
In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.
