- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

Hello! My name is Kara Yonker and I love 4th grade! This year is my fourth year at Niwot and I am loving it here! This is now my 12th year teaching, and I have taught grades 1-5 throughout my career. I received my B.A. degree at University of Nevada Las Vegas. I am also proud to be a part of the Southern Nevada Writing Project, working as a teacher consultant for professional development in writing.
Teaching to me is more than just a job; it is my passion. I have a strong belief in creating a safe and secure environment where students want to learn and feel comfortable being their true selves. Learning can be a lot of work, especially in 4th grade, but it can also be fun! I want to create life-long learners who enjoy the journey through education.
I believe that all children have the right to be heard because their opinions matter. I will be committed to teaching your child the importance of making decisions and being responsible for the consequences of those choices. I believe that all children have the ability to make choices that will enable them to succeed.
I hope that your child will leave this classroom at the year’s end with a belief that anything is possible with hard work and a belief in the power they hold.
