Whispering Winds Academy: What's Happening in Our Classrooms?
Below you will find "snap shots" of what has been happening here at Whispering Winds Academy (WWA).
The Art Room
Wow, we have had so much fun in the Art Room these past months...the time has flown by! One of the highlights was our visiting artists, Skunk Control, who came to WWA and taught a wonderful project to second and third grades. This project was based on their automated butterfly display at Canal Convergence, an annual large-scale art/engineering STEAM exhibit in Scottsdale.
We were thrilled to host them all the way from Melbourne, Australia! Great job WWA! We had so much fun and loved learning symmetry with our new friends from Australia!
Library Media Center
Supports our community of curious learners. The library is a place to explore new information and to create innovative ways to use and share what you find. Here we enjoy the adventure of learning.
Free Resources for Online Student Tutoring (FROST)
Attention: K-12 students and parents of students!
Do you need some extra support with your homework? The National Honor Society students of PVSchools provide online tutoring for any subject area and grade level! Please join us this year as we also welcome students needing tutoring throughout Arizona, and beyond.
The online technology uses two-way audio/video (optional) and a unique solution of screen sharing. To help learn concepts, tools like drawing, text, shapes and colors can be annotated by both student and tutor on a virtual whiteboard, and/or web sites, files.
To get started, visit the district's FROST information page. From there, navigate to the FROST website and follow all of the instructions on the initial page.
Once you've connected, you'll be greeted by a PVSchools certificated teacher, who will place you in a breakout room with your NHS/FROST tutor. Enjoy learning!
