Week of December 12-16

screen-shot-2016-12-06-at-9-31-43-am

This week will be the final week before the Christmas Holiday Break. Because we are all in such a festive mood, we want to pass this mood on to our students. Each day will provide students and teachers different opportunities to show their holiday spirit. The list above shows what to wear each day. We are looking forward sharing the week with our students.

Cinquain Poems

I’m so proud of our cinquain superstars! Recently all fifth graders chose a person they admire or wanted to learn more about. They followed a template to write a cinquain and then illustrated their poems. I was very impressed with the final products.

Parents, your child’s graded cinquain came home today.

Here are a few of our students’ incredible poems! Way to go!

Parents will need to make a note of upcoming Early Releases dates and times as these do not appear on the current school calendar. We have been advised that due to high school’s exams dates and times, it has been approved that our intermediate students will dismiss at 12:00 on both Thursday, December 15th, and Friday, December 16th.

Please make plans for your 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders as they will be getting home earlier than normal on these days.

Day 5 Genius Hour Presentations

We recently enjoyed Day 5 of our rockstar presenters. On this day, we learned about Babe Ruth,  tornadoes, were amazed at a classmate that built the Titanic, Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge in Minecraft, the history of the NFL, Alaskan Malamutes, Spider Monkeys, the history of YouTube, Black Mambas, the history of swords, salt water horses, the evolution of television, Lamar Jackson, clay, the Ebola Virus, what it’s like to live in the United Kingdom, all about rainbows, Lego Ninjago, Tasmanian Devils, and the history of football. Wow!

What an incredible day of learning. So proud of these Genius Hour experts.

Enjoy some of our favorite class memories from this exciting day!
