I hope your son or daughter have shared his or her experiences about the first few days of school. Already from the first half day, I can tell many of the students are ready to become student leaders and “dare greatly” as evidence from the teacher introduction rap and dance that they choreographed and performed on Thursday!
We have also spent some time organizing our reader’s and writer’s notebooks for upcoming activities and launched our ⅚ wide, hands-on icosahedron investigation. With intention, we are staying in homeroom the first two weeks to develop a sense of community, trust, and support. I have read the “Rabbi’s Gift” to your child twice already and we have reflected on how some of the themes may be relevant to our classroom.
Please review the outdoor education paperwork that I gave to your child on Friday and return them by this Friday, August 25. There are two items that require your immediate attention. First, if your child requires any type of medication (over-the-counter, homeopathic, and/or prescription), your child’s doctor needs to fill out the appropriate forms. Second, if you are interested in volunteering for the outdoor education experience to 100 Elk, please fill out the form and return it to us by this Thursday, August 24. If you have any questions or concerns about the trip, please let me know. Also, copies of all the forms can be found under the handouts/documents tab of the ⅚ website.
