News, Notes, and Reflections

To start, I just want to thank everyone once again for their hard work during Exhibitions. This includes students AND parents. These "little" presentations take a lot of time and preparation. Without the support of families, they wouldn't be possible. And I really believe I saw 16 of the best. Not just the best in the school, but as a group, these kids did the best of any class I've worked with since we opened. Well done, and keep it up!

I think the thing that impressed me most was the quality of the Interest Projects. I learned a lot from the presentations, and so did the audience. I always try to push kids to go beyond "puppies" or "dolphins" (not that I have anything against those animals) but seeing them learn and listening to them talk about Vincent Van Gogh or the origin of money how an earthquake occurs or chicken eggs or the Sony Corporation is much more satisfying.

This is a great group of kids and I am proud of all of them.

Just some other notes:
*No School Wednesday-Friday. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I'll see you Monday, Nov. 30.
*Book-in-a-Bag and Slice of Life stories both resume this week. Both due Monday. POW will resume next week.
*I congratulated Ileana and Claire for their involvement in the Yearbook. I should have congratulated Ileana and TROI. Sorry, Troi. :)
