Hello families,

We had a bittersweet week as students are already experiencing all of the emotions that come with the end of the year, and friends transitioning to other places next year. They are such a thoughtful, reflective group of young people. We completed our overview of Mesoamerica, and the conquering of those amazing civilizations. I anonymously read aloud a few of our students’ writings, and will continue next week. They love hearing each other’s work, particularly when they don’t know who wrote it : ) Please carefully read through each of the highlighted areas below, as we have important events happening in these final two weeks!

When completing Independent Study at home, it is crucial for students to complete their daily journal of activities. Here is a link to an online version for our final 2 weeks. Please have students make a copy, and fill it in. If they are coming to the classroom, they can fill in their hard copies.
