Week of October 22nd - 26th

End of Trimester - Student Gallery Walk

At the end of last school year, we decided as a school to end the trimester awards and instead have ALL students display something they are proud of - could be an assignment, story, video of them playing the piano, something they made out of legos, makerspace items, sports medal, etc....

I plan to have a letter for parents by the end of the week sharing this information so they may start speaking with their children about what they are proud of and would like for others to see. Of course, we need to discuss this as well with our students.

The goal would then be for students to have time to visit other rooms and see each others accomplishments/talents and for parents to be able to come into the building and do the same.

Please start thinking about ideas to help make this special, memorable and smooth! At our staff meeting, we will finalize details. Until then, please e-mail me with suggestions and more so I can start piecing it together.
