Happy April and welcome back to school!
I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break and are ready to be inquirers and action takers as we wrap up these next two months of school. We will be very busy this month as there is a lot to learn, a lot to show, and even more to celebrate. I know this time is going to fly by quickly!
I always enjoy hearing from my students. Technology is a useful way for us to express our creativity and communicate with one another. What other ways can we express ourselves? What is your favorite way to communicate?
Deep inside every student is wonder, curiosity, talent, and potential. It is my job, OUR job as PYP teachers, to bring out the brilliance in each and every one of you. We BELIEVE you are capable. We KNOW you can and will achieve great things. We HOPE you will use your knowledge to leave a legacy to help make the world a better place.
This month we will be asking many of our students to show us what they know. Students in grades 3-6 will be taking the MCAs and students in 1-2 will be taking the NWEAs (late April into May). Throughout this month I will be asking you to stay balanced and make sure you get plenty of sleep each night and eat healthy. I will be encouraging each one of you to be a THINKER and transfer what you have been learning in class to new situations. Remember to live the Profile!
