Our second trimester is winding down and we came together to celebrate all of the hard work that has gone in to pursuing projects in the area of Conflict and Cooperation. Some of the topics we explored were the Hundred Years War, various countries and literature from various cultures surrounding a common theme. Pictures speak a thousand words!
This year’s auction was a huge success as well as a lot of fun. The PEF went above and beyond and raised almost $7,800! This was about 60% more than was raised last year. The money will be used to support our staff and their professional development. Thank you to everyone who volunteered many hours to make this happen. Thank you also to those who donated items and to everyone who supported our cause.
Core Value – Responsibility
Our responsible Star Students this week were: Adam, Caedan, Emma, Jael, Jordan, Julia, Molly and Oliver.
The Shor Room
At the auction, there was a special presentation to honor Sarah Shor and the many contributions she has made to Polaris over several years. She was our first PEF president and has spent countless hours in service to Polaris. She also established our school library. In her honor, the former “specials” room is dedicated to Sarah.
One of the best parts of the end of a trimester is when our students visit other classes and are able to see presentations, projects and ask questions. It is a tremendous opportunity to learn from one another and it is so rewarding to the see the pride and excitement of both teachers and students!
- Parent/Teacher/Student conferences are Friday March 25th (no school) and Wednesday March 30th after school
