MYP update of the week
Foundations classes will be starting a design cycle for fourth quarter. Design is one of the eight subject areas for the MYP that helps create a well-rounded, balanced education for all students. According to IB, design challenges students to apply practical and creative thinking skills to solve design problems, explore the role of design in both historical and contemporary contexts, and consider their responsibilities when making design decisions and taking action. We are excited to see the creative, innovative ideas our students come up with as they collaborate on this project. Check in with your student in the coming weeks to see what he or she is learning through this experience.
This week at Ramsey
In ELA Workshop 7, we started our poetry unit for fourth quarter, which will involve both reading and writing poetry over the next several weeks.
A Note From PTO

We're in the process of finding new leaders for the PTO next year.
We also need input on the future direction of PTO- what works, what could be done differently?
Please come, Parents and Teachers!
