Last week RPS 205 teachers and Rockford Park District staff welcomed students in grades K-5 to Gregory Elementary School's Camp No Other Person Like You! Each week of camp follows a new theme. The theme last week was Understanding Myself. Students have enjoyed taking selfies, using mirrors for self-portraits and exploring other ways to learn about themselves.
Students met Wince from the book "Don't Feed the WorryBug" and learned that the bug grew bigger when Wince worried. In the end, Wince learned not to worry and his worry bug shrunk.
The students enjoyed spending time in the Discovery Center session where they played with LEGOs to form their names and built castles and towers. One kindergartner said, "I built a huge castle."
Through the use of technology and media arts, students learned to explore themselves and create a positive self-image.
The state released formal guidelines on Tuesday about what in-person learning will look like this fall.
This message might not surprise you, but we wanted to share our disappointment with our students and graduates.
RPS 205 teachers and students will comply with all Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines.
Please enroll for the 2020-21 school year before July 10.
Parents/guardians and students are required to bring a student ID to receive a device.
