Weekly Update 1/22-1/25


Cold enough for you? 🙂 It is hard to believe that the year is half way over. Tuesday marks the beginning of the second half of the year. It is also when we say good-bye to Mrs. Ashworth and Library Instruction and we welcome back Mr. Andrew for Applied Engineering. The second half of the year also brings a great opportunity for a clean-out of backpacks and home folders. 🙂

This week we will begin our social studies unit on Cultural Awareness. This unit includes a home project which is a “Who Am I?” poster where we look at ourselves as individuals (information about this will be coming home this week). The students will need to create a poster that tells who they are. Information can include any languages spoken by the family, ways you celebrate holidays or birthdays, special foods your family eats/makes, special talents/hobbies that make your family unique…or anything else that fits your unique family! Many examples will be shared with the students which will hopefully allow them to begin brainstorming. We do understand that each family is different, and these differences truly make each child special and unique. While there are certain requirements for the poster, each family can take it in the direction that fits their family.

  • Monday, January 21: – MLK Jr. Day – No School  
  • Tuesday, January 22: Cycle Day D –
