Dear Secondary School Families:
Happy Friday! The Secondary School kicked off the fourth marking period with lots of school spirit. I am including some additional photos that I hope you will enjoy. Our themes this week were soccer mom vs. bbq dad, night in vs. night out, country club vs. country, tacky tourist vs. pirate, and class color day. The juxtaposition and selection of choices were really fun to see each day. Next week we are eagerly anticipating the return of Nature’s Classroom. With the pandemic, Nature’s Classroom has gone mobile and is dubbed Nature on Wheels. Next week 6th and 7th grade students will get outside and dive into the world of science through hands-on, exploratory and fun learning experiences. Here is the link to Nature’ Classroom’s website for additional information on their programming.
Cooking With Carlstedt: C’est Fantastic! This week some of Ms. Carstledt’s students participated in an authentic learning experience. Check out some of the photos from the French cooking workshop. Lots of fun was had by all!
Lost and Found Update: The life skills classroom is working very hard at washing, drying, hanging, tagging and uploading the lost and found articles on our website. We are realizing that the website is not very user friendly and will be working to revamp the website next week. If you know your child is missing something, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and give a detailed description, your childś name and grade or feel free to check out the website starting at number 1-133 for the middle/high school and 134-300+ for the elementary.
