Learning Celebration

We had another great celebration of students’ learning. Our teachers and students amazed us with their poetry, writing pieces and their varied projects that demonstrated ‘how things work.’ This month’s Core Value is responsibility and it really showed but I also witnessed community, friendship, citizenship, caring, acceptance and respect!!

What Next?

Dear families,

Next Wednesday April 8th at 6:00 Michelle Mathieu and Kim Russell will be hosting an informal meeting in the  Polaris Gathering room about the options families have for their children following Polaris. We will be discussing current schools as well as the possibilities of opening a new charter school for ages 12 and up! Please let us know if you are able to attend and if you have information or ideas that you would like to share with other families please let us know.


Kim Russell and Michelle Mathieu


This week we talked about responsibility rather than excuses. Example of excuses were shared and then we changed it to a statement of responsibility.  For example “it broke” can be changed to “I broke it. What can I do to fix it?”


Mrs. V’s Class Share

During the second trimester, each of the students in Mrs. V’s class picked an inventor and invention to research and they presented this during the learning celebration. At Thursday’s Morning Gathering they shared the introduction they performed.  Each student introduced themselves and they performed a dance.  I have not been able to get the song “Cotton Eyed Joe” out of my head since! Great job Pavo class!!

Music Notes

In music this week, Ms. Rosenthal played exampled of popular music through out the last several decades. I was surprised at how much knowledge of Michael Jackson songs that Mrs. Fesh’s kids had. Can you guess which song she played part of from the picture below 🙂

World Language

Hola Familias,

This week in Spanish we learned the crazy sounds of A (ah), E(ay), I(ee), O(oh) & U (oo). Hopefully, some of the new sounds stuck with the kids. We also reviewed our colores (colors) and are working on making some great PRIMAVERA (Spring) pictures using our colors.
