Conferences – Great to see so many families today at school! Thank you for taking the time to share in your child’s learning journey. As always if you have specific concerns and would like to speak individually to the teacher, please email to set a time.

Journeys – Field Trips! Next week we are taking a couple of physical journeys and a virtual journey. We are off to the planetarium on Monday. Aside from exploring some of the hands-on exhibits, we are excited about experiencing a virtual journey through the solar system. Then on Thursday (1HM, 1DE, 1DC) and Friday (1AO, 1TM) we are off to the train museum. All students will need a lunch from home on both trip days. Thank you to our parent volunteers who will join us.

Journeys – Timeline Homework – We are looking forward to sharing our life journey timelines next week. Your child can represent important life events with labeled photos or drawings, so that he has a vehicle to share his life journey with the class. Timelines can be represented many ways. Your child should be as creative as they like. Of course an adult may help with some of the writing if needed, but your child should be prepared to share it with the class. Please send in the timelines any day next week.

Math –  Did you learn a math game at conferences? We hope you take the time to try it at home. Games are a great way to build number sense and math confidence.

Journeys Over the Break? – You may be flying off to another country or hanging out here in Moscow. Whatever the plan, we are asking students to bring an artifact from their week away from school. It may be a souvenir, a photo or drawing, a skiing medal, a ticket to a museum, some sand from the beach, etc.
