Ranger Report 01/20/23

IB World School

This week, as a school, we practiced being REFLECTIVE by showing empathy for others and the world through kind actions! Our Spanish phrase of the week was "Vamos en camión" which means, Let's take the bus. We encouraged all scholars to practice this phrase throughout the day and even at home.

Mrs. Muehling's Message:

Hi Rangers!

Wow! It was wonderful to see so many of you at today's 2nd 9-week awards assemblies! Thank you for your continued support. Your children are the reason we are here, and we appreciate you so much! We hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend and can't wait to see you on Monday.

We need you to sign up to be a PTA member! There is information below about how you can join TODAY!

Learner Profile --> Reflective

All Rangers spent the week being thoughtful about their past learning from this year.

FROM THE IB --> REFLECTIVE - Reflective people give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience. They are able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development.
