November update

Note from the principal

October has come and gone! The leaves changed quickly and seem like just yesterday we were starting school! The pumpkin carving, Wax Museum, and Halloween parade were such fun and engaging events for us all. I hope that you were able to enjoy them as well.

Parent-Teacher conferences gave us a chance to connect with each of you on a personal level, discussing your children. Our goal, is continued growth and learning, in your students and involving all of you. You are always welcome to share a thought or ask a question. Partnering with parents is a pillar of academic success. This month we look at our students, families, and teachers with a renewed sense of gratitude.

We hope that each of you looks to the small everyday moments that renew this kind of reaction. Please join us as we begin to assemble a thankful tree. Help your children write something they find joy in, and as parents, I hope you will fill in a leaf or two as well! Spend some time with your children reading all the things we have to be great full for in our community.

Make sure to mark your calendars with the dates below and enjoy pictures of our busy month!

Wax Museum

Our Elementary students participated in a month-long project that culminates with a historical figure presentation. Each student is tasked with picking a historical figure that they want to learn about. They read books about their person and use digital technology to find additional resources. Students create a rough draft in writing that goes through the editing process. They then created a poster board, with all of the information. Finally, they find a costume and memorize a 30-second speech for their presentation! What an amazing opportunity to practice so many skills, including public speaking at such a young age!
