I’m still getting used to School Speak and other school programs. Thanks for hanging in there with me!
A big congratulations to Justin: our room 16 school council representative and Darmin: our room 4 representative. All 5 candidates gave excellent speeches and received many votes: it was a tough race! Well done to all.
Next week starts STAR testing. Please send ear buds/head phones in with your child by Monday. They should not be noise cancelling. (That way, they can still hear teacher instructions.)
Back to School Night is quickly approaching (Wednesday, September 12)! The evening starts with a welcome in the church at 7, followed by two 20 minute sessions in the classrooms. This way you have chance to see both of your 6th grader’s teachers. Or, split your time among whomever you need to.
Below are pictures of a Think-Pair-Share. In this activity, the students consider a deep-dive question, pair with a friend, and share their thoughts. Then, children are called on to share their partner’s opinions on the question.
Have a great weekend!
