Letter from Claire - Oct 16

Dear Families,

Thank you Charlene and Diane for organizing Photo Day, and to the parent volunteers who helped make it such a success!!  Photo day for so many students is a big undertaking, and we’re extremely lucky to have the support of our families.  Big smiles everywhere.

Please come to Chat with Claire on October 24th @ 5:30 pm in the auditorium. This will be a joint meeting with the PTA. The topic is snack.

From the Classroom

6th grade had a publishing celebration of their personal narrative unit. “This unit is a cornerstone launch for writing workshop. It helps to set the tone for kids’ writing life in middle school – ideally a tone that says, “Your stories, and therefore your lives, matter here.” I read three strong pieces: Maybe, The Day Democracy Died and Jellyfish.

Thank you to Sharifa and Raphael for inviting families to an evening orientation to Regents Living environment course. 

 

Best,

Claire
