ASPIRE 5th Weekly News
September 4, 2015
Order and Chaos
What do you find at the intersection of Order and Chaos? Why an ASPIRE classroom - of course! This year we have chosen to integrate a universal theme throughout our curriculum. Our scholars did a great job writing generalizations about this theme. "Too much order can lead to chaos." "Order AND chaos are just a part of life." "Order leads to chaos and chaos can also lead to order." "Out of chaos comes creativity."
ASPIRE Curriculum Night
Please plan to attend Curriculum Night next Thursday, September 10. If you are new to the ASPIRE Academy, please join us at 6:00 in the cafeteria. We will then meet with ALL parents from 6:30-7:15 in the library.
We ask that you plan to leave your children at home if at all possible. If you can't come without bringing your child, please bring a quiet activity for them to do. Thank you for your cooperation in this.
