The Juliano Journal
Week of May 9-13
We have some exciting events as we approach the end of the year. Author's Day this year will be held on Friday, May 27th. West is in need of LOTS of volunteers (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, college-age siblings, etc.) to make the day successful. Volunteers will lead small groups of students throughout the day's activities, including our visiting author's presentation and two breakout sessions. Volunteers are not required to stay for the final session (2:30 pm-3:15 pm). We are asking for a minimum of two parents per class. Groups will be broken into K-1, 2-3, 4-5. If you have more than one child at West, you will be placed with your child in the class you sign up for. If your class volunteers are filled, feel free to sign up in the "additional volunteer" section, and provide the name of your child that you want to be grouped with in the comments section. Here is the link to sign up:
Thanks for considering volunteering!
Have a great weekend! :)
This week, students found a partner that they wanted to go into business with. Together with their partners, students decided on a product to sell at Meerkat Mall, and conducted a market research survey to decide on a price to sell their product at. Next week we will discuss advertising techniques, and partnerships will create a slogan, jingle, and a symbol for their market. Students will also get to start creating a commercial to advertise their product. It will for sure be a fun time for students!
**There is weekend homework for economics this week! Please be sure your child completes it and brings it back on Monday.**
