Trimester 1 Theme
During Trimester 1, all students will be diving into the theme: Identity & Character. Students learn the power and importance of their voice by connecting with their self-identity and culture.
What characteristics do small creatures have to help them thrive? What are my characteristics? How do they help me thrive?
How do my family and culture stories help us learn more about myself? How do family and culture stories help me learn about others?
Why is it hard for some children to go to school in their communities? How do communities solve these problems so their children can go to school?
How can enduring tremendous hardship contribute to personal transformation?
In order to prepare, students will read complex texts, write about the topics they study, and engage in purposeful conversations. In addition, students will have an opportunity to engage in field work experience to enhance the learning.
Field Work Experience
During the first week of September, we will have the wonderful opportunity of exploring our essential questions through field work experiences. Over the course of the week, students will gather information from the various locations they visit, to answer the grade level essential question. Students will have the unique opportunity to visit various landmarks in our state and learn from members of our larger community, which is a foundational component to who we are as a school! We are excited to kick off Trimester 1 with such great opportunities to explore!
Excited to hear where your child will be going? A finalized list will be sent home on Friday, August 30th! And no worries, before and after care will continue as normal (6:30-6:30)!
FYI: Because we won't be in the convention center during the school day next week, the space we occupy will be utilized, while we are gone. Please don't be stressed, if the classrooms look a little different on Friday!
