Salutations scholars,

Each day I am impressed by the learning happening at  Tesfa.  Learning is very different for each one of us.  Some of our students are learning letter sounds while others are studying Latin roots. However, both of these skills are part of the bigger idea that letters function in different ways when grouped together. Making connections between what we already know and what we are currently learning helps us to understand those “bigger ideas” or concepts.

Sometimes I come across really interesting quotes or pieces of information that make me think. I want you to read the statements below:

“The only justification we have for looking down on someone is that we’re going to stop and pick them up.” – Jesse Jackson

Think of this next time you are questioning someone’s actions or behaviors. Think less about what they’re doing wrong and more about how you can help make it right. What connections can you make from reading this?

We all have choices to make each day.  Some of those choices are big and some are little. Whatever choice you make has a consequence, some are good and some are not so good. Be thoughtful and make choices that are respectful and promote peace and kindness. If you want things to change, you need to take action!  How will you take action and promote change?

We are so proud of all your commitment as you continue to grow as a PYP student.

Stay Curious!

Ms. Becky
