    Ainsworth Library Book Bag Program: Let’s Get Reading!

    The building may be closed, but we still want every student to have access to physical books. Your reader will receive a bag containing six books, appropriate for their grade level and language of instruction, selected to represent a range of interests and reading abilities. Book bags will be distributed from and returned to Ainsworth every two weeks.

  • Staying connected in 2020

    Building community and staying connected as a school staff is important now more than ever. With our classes we work to build relationships in part through teamwork and games at the beginning of the school year. In August our staff started doing something similar. 

    Mutual trust and team dynamics are often built through events like this and are important in building vibrant and resilient staff, especially when we are physically apart.

    After researching a number of options, we were delighted to find teambuilding.com’s Online Office Games event. Our funny and energetic hosts, Jim and Kevin, helped us try to solve an ancient Egyptian murder myster. It not only helped us get to know each other better but also taught us about the meeting technology (Zoom) that has been vital to our connectedness in this work-from-home time. This event gave us the opportunity to become more familiar with aspects of Zoom that we will use with our classes; things like breakout rooms and renaming our display windows. My favorite part was getting a glimpse into each person’s home and personality. The host would occasionally ask us to bring a specific item to the screen to earn points for our teams or ask us various trivia questions. It is clear a trivia showdown is in our future!

    Prior to the event, I know that some of my colleagues were not sure what to expect, and honestly I wasn’t either. Afterward, many were appreciative of the event and our fun time together. Most importantly, we learned about each other and worked together as a team.
