Portfolio Showcase 2018: You’re Invited to Celebrate a Year of Growth!
Wednesday, May 14th
We are so proud of the tremendous growth of our students, and as the year draws to a close we would like to share with you a glimpse of their progress. Please join us for a morning celebration!
Beginning at 8:15 with All-School Meeting, we’ll come together as a school to kick-start this year-in-review. Then parents will join students back in their classrooms or advisories in order to experience carefully selected reflections on what their challenges and successes were. The Showcase will end at approximately 10:00, but feel free to join us for coffee on the Beech Tree Terrace for a bit afterward!
We hope you’ll be able to share in this special day!
Making Global Connections:
We have had a few presenters over the last couple of weeks. Thank you, presenters, for your contributions and helping us with our global studies.
Mrs Hottel came to share about the culture of Brazil and the martial art based dance called Capoeira.
Mrs. FitzGerald and Mrs. McKinley shared about Ireland and covered topics such as language, the flag, landscape, music, and shared some potato stamping as well as traditional soda bread.
Mrs. Reimer shared about her trip and some information about Haiti.
We have also read the following books:
*The Red Bicycle: The Extraordinary Story of One Ordinary Bicycle by Jude Isabella
* Wangari’s Trees of Peace - A True Story from Africa By Jeanette Winter
We are expecting more presentations next week. Children will continue to reflect on their learning, make connections using our 2nd grade world map, and consider global topics for inquiry learning.
