Week of September 21st-25th
Dear PACE Parents,
This week was our final leadership lesson. The first part of the lesson we discussed our upcoming community service project, “Socktober”. We brainstormed ideas on how we could promote this idea. We also worked on teambuilding with a building challenge. The students had to build a “shelter” using newspapers, tape and trash bags without being able to talk!
We wrapped up our lessons about The Dot and making our mark by learning about the artwork of George Seurat. It is amazing how all of those tiny dots combine to create masterpieces!
Have a great week,

Create a picture using only dots like George Seurat.
Design a new shelter using the same things we used in class-newspapers, trash bags and tape. Draw it or build it and take a picture to show the class!!
Choose one of the homework choices from the last two weeks that you did not choose before.
Students were given 5 pieces of newspaper, 3 pieces of butcher paper, a trash bag and tape.
They could also use one chair and attach their shelter to the wall.
The biggest hurdle was that during the activity they could not talk!!
Upcoming events and opportunities
