News Release
Technology, coding, math and family resources on display at tour of public schools - 01/31/18

Vancouver Public Schools will hold a tour of Felida Elementary School and Thomas Jefferson Middle School on Friday, February 23, 2018. Everyone is welcome to attend to learn about these schools and the district.

At Felida, visitors will tour classrooms where students are increasing their math proficiency and skills through innovative uses of technology. Students will demonstrate how they practice the 7 Habits of Successful Kids to guide their decisions about time, work habits and friends.

Visitors also will explore the technology-rich environment in which Jefferson students are taught and learn on one-to-one iPads. Tour members will visit a project-based Gateway to Technology program, coding class and eighth-grade history class. At Jefferson, tour-goers will discover the school's strong commitment to teaching positive, respectful behaviors.

Finally, attendees will learn about the mobile Family-Community Resource Center that assists students and families who live in poverty. The mobile FCRC received a 2017 Magna Award Grand Prize from the National School Boards Association.

Superintendent Steve Webb will host the tour, which begins and ends at the Bates Center for Educational Leadership, 2921 Falk Rd. The tour starts at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 1 p.m. After visiting Felida and Jefferson, guests have the option of enjoying a student musical performance and delicious lunch prepared by culinary arts students. Lunch is available for $5 per person.

Everyone is welcome, but space is limited. To sign up, call Sue Knable at 360-313-4720, email susan.knable@vansd.org or sign up online:
