Reading Project - Sharknado!
Student Ambassadors Sorting Food Drive Items!
Fourth and fifth grade students returning from field trip to the Shalin Liu.
We are still in the infancy stages of the project as most of the work is in the form of developing the relationship via email. Just this week, we began to get some of the children involved in putting together an introductory package that we will mail to the school. As the language barrier is quite challenging, the initial package will be comprised mostly of artwork from our students depicting American life along with some local items that represent our culture. In the next week or so, we will mail the package off and this will officially kick off our sister school relationship with the Amino-Gakuen School! This will be a great learning experience for all...stay tuned as I will keep you updated!
I wish you all a very healthy, happy, and restful (ha ha) Thanksgiving holiday. We all have so much to be thankful for, and I am particularly thankful for my partnership with all of you. Enjoy the time with your family!
Have a great weekend!
