Core Value – Responsibility

This week we read a story about a girl who was trying out for a play. As she was auditioning, she forgot her line and ended up not getting the part. She got angry and blamed her teacher for making her mess up. However it was her responsibility to know her material and no one else’s.  We related that to the work we are doing in preparation for our Learning Celebration. Teachers are there to guide students but ultimately it is up to students to make good choices and complete their work. We also watched a short video with that message that you can view here.

Star Students

Our responsible Star Students this week were: Ella, Joshy, Manny, Mikail, Sirus and Tyler.

Mrs. Fesh also recognized her entire class for how much responsibility they have shown while cooperating and working together to practice their plays.IMG_7009


Vela Class Share

Mrs. Fesh’s class has been reading different versions of the Cinderella story from other cultures. For example”The Golden Sandal” is the Middle Eastern version and “Adelita” is the Mexican version. They also read the traditional Cinderella and a Native American story and they have been working very hard on those two plays for the Learning Celebration. They shared them with us at Morning Gathering on Thursday and Friday. What a treat!

Parents’ Coffee

The next morning coffee is Wednesday April 6th, at Panera Bread on S. Willow, we look forward to seeing you there!

North Star Dance

Polaris’ North Star Dance is set to return on Saturday April 4th at 6pm. This is an opportunity for kids to honor someone who is a guiding influence in their lives, their “North Star.”  Save the date, additional information forthcoming!


The Enrichment and Events committees are both in need of a chair/co-chair. These jobs are time-consuming, but incredibly rewarding, and so much easier when you have lots of people helping out. Even if you’re not interested in chairing you can be a member of one of these committees and do a lot of really great work for our community!

Box Tops

Although the Spring submission date for Box Tops has passed, please continue to send them in as often as you like. Our Box Tops coordinator clips and organizes them year round!
