We’re as excited to build relationships with families as we are to build relationships with our students! Let’s work together for an awesome 2019-2020 school year! We are so happy and excited about this great start to the new year!
Thanks to all parents/guardians and students who came to pick up their schedule! We really enjoyed meeting everyone and reading the writing that people left behind. We used parent advice to line Carol’s classroom door so that parent advice is what students see when they leave the classroom for the day. We enjoyed reading the student surveys and finding we as teachers had lots of very specific things in common with students and lots of new things to learn from them!
PBL POT LUCK
Parent pot luck tomorrow to talk about PBL, what it is, how it’s different from traditional education, and how to best support your student! Sign up come and to bring something here. We’ll be raffling off Magic Castle tickets for everyone who shows up!: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1e3QqGsVapH2yPEr2hpU0K2GiBvOde1MATx-juKIKsRg/edit?usp=sharing
