Family Newsletter-November/December 2018

Greetings Families,

Thank you for attending parent-teacher conferences this past month. It is always great to be able to connect and build upon the relationship between home and school. We had a fun end to the month of November with our school-wide OMSI Science Festival before Thanksgiving and then the start of our Right Brain artist Korekara Taiko. Japanese Korekara Taiko brings the power of the drum to our students. Taiko, a unique blend of musical, visual and physical art forms engages our students’ minds and bodies, incorporating the life skills of respect, cooperation and perseverance. Each classroom will receive four lessons in Taiko between Nov. 26th and Jan. 17th. We kicked off our Taiko with an amazing assembly. Please see the pictures below from our OMSI experience and Taiko.
