Happy Winter Break!
Core Value – Respect
This week, we read an update on Kid President. As you know, he has a disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) which results in frequent broken bones. This week he had surgery to replace a rod in his leg. The students love watching his inspirational videos that contain such wonderful messages. It was a reminder that you never know what someone you know is going through and why it is important to treat each other with respect and kindness.
To correspond with this message, we listened to/watched a video called “Take a Walk in Someone Else’s Shoes.” It talked about looking at situations from another person’s perspective. You can view it here.
Last week’s students who really exemplified Respect were: Emmy, Giuli, Izzy, Jordan, Ryan and Sarah. Super job!
Pavo Class Share
The Pavo class has been learning about the American Revolution. Each student has been researching a person significant to that time period (such as George Washington and Betsy Ross) and they shared a little about them with us last Friday. They also taught us the song “My Country Tis of Thee,” first explaining what each verse means.
Students in Mrs. Dudley’s and Mrs. V’s class buddied together to make catapults recently. They used tape and popsicle sticks to build them and then they measured the distance that the hershey kisses traveled.
- There is no school February 22nd through February 28th
