Letter from Claire - April 18

 

Dear Families,

 

The ELA and Math testing is over! Thank you for supporting our students, your patience and for clearing the hallways. We appreciate the support very much.

 

In an effort to teach our children about hunger in our community, MSC classes have been visiting the food pantry at the West Side Campaign Against Hunger, located on 86th Street.

 

This week: April 18-22, MSC will be holding a non-perishable food drive to help those in need. Families can bring food donations to the school lobby and they will be brought directly to the neighborhood food pantry for distribution.

 

Reminders

Please come to Chat with Claire on Tuesday, April 19th @ 6:00 pm in the cafeteria.

 

The Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee will be hosting a community screening of the movie American Promise, Wednesday, April 20th, 6:00pm - 7:45pm. Please join!

 

From the Classroom

Our 4th and 7th grade classes viewed a Lincoln Center Education performance: Theater Unspeakable, Chicago, IL. Presents: The American Revolution History where seven actors recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown using only the actor's bodies, voices. The show evokes an epic time period in American history. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with bare-boned and imaginative physical theater. Through our partnership with LCE, our 4th and 7th graders are noticing, making connections and posing questions as they move forward in creating their own original works of art, while studying closely the events of The American Revolution.

 

Our 7th and 8th grade track team had their first track meet. They competed in the long jump, hurdles and relay. Our team performed extremely well and had a great time. Go team!

 

 

Best,

Claire
