Dear parents and students,

I hope you have a wonderful National Day / Mid-Autumn Festival / Golden Week Holiday this upcoming week. Whether you are staying local or traveling to a distant location, please be safe and enjoy the break. Please ensure students are reading and recording their books / time spent / pages read in their reading log at the back of their assignment book.

We had a wonderful, yet super busy, week last week. Students should be proud of all the hard work they devoted to their education during this time period. Students presented their civilization key notes, published their narrative writing, completed their reading post-test, displayed their learning from the Who We Are unit of inquiry through their summative assessment, celebrated three fellow peers being chosen by classmates to be recognized for their awesome communication skills, engaged in the first spirit day of the school year (TWIN DAY), and successfully “broke out” in a growth-mindset fun-filled activity. Whew!!!! All in one week! (Pictures / videos have been posted on my twitter feed)

Thank you parents for always actively supporting your children. I know they spent time and resources at home to complete many of these tasks. Thank you for coming out to parent / student / teacher goal-setting conferences this past Thursday, key note presentations this past Monday and Tuesday, & the publishing party yesterday.

There is one amazing upcoming event happening at Level 5 after the break that I want everyone to be aware of. The flyer with information is posted below. Again, have a wonderful and relaxing time off, keep reading, and I can’t wait to see my students back ready to go on October 9th.
