This week we talked about trustworthiness at school and how important it is for learning. Students expect that teachers and school staff will be honest and reliable. Teachers and staff hope that students will be loyal to their school. Each classroom has established a classroom constitution or code of conduct. By following what is expected of them, students show trustworthiness. This extends outside our school as well. We discussed how when we are on a field trip, the same rules apply.

This week we also watched a clip from the movie The Jungle Book about trust.

Star Students

The students that were recognized for their trustworthiness this week were: Bindhi, Jeff, Juju, Julian, Mikail, Nevaeh, and Wren. Congratulations to all of you!

Fisher Cats Educational Day

Polaris Charter School students attended the Fisher Cats Educational Day baseball game on Wednesday.  Tickets and busing were provided by the Youk’s Kids Foundation (Foundation of Kevin Youkilis, former Red Sox player).  Our students listened well and represented Polaris well. They were able to visit a petting zoo and some science stations. Thank you for those that chaperoned.

Ms. Gilbert’s Class

This week Ms. Gilbert’s students learned about the water cycle to go along with this trimester’s theme of Journey’s and Cycles. They put on a skit demonstrating the process. Some students were a pool of water, one was the sun, others were droplets than became a cloud and some were precipitation. They also wrote a song that they taught us at Morning Gathering.
