Our Week of Learning
Dear Parents, 
It’s hard to believe but we are now less than two months from summer, yet we have so much to accomplish. This week students are working on several different projects related to Exhibition, International Day, and their How we organize ourselves unit of inquiry. 

For International Day students are working on four projects, all of which will be displayed in a video produced by students from the Middle Years Program. In order to complete our tasks we are hoping for a few items from home. If possible, students should bring the following to school:

-small metal (and plastic) objects
-a white (or light colored) t-shirt

Prior to spring break, students began exploring various topics for the Exhibition. Currently we have ten groups with the following topics:

1. Sustainability & Environment
2. Animal Welfare & Contributions
3. Radioactive Materials & Waste
4. Meeting Basic Needs
5. War in Eastern Europe
6. Mental Health
7. Mental Health
8. Social Media & Screen Time
9. Street Racing
10. Discrimination 
Home-School Connection
AS IB students, your child should demonstrate behaviors and actions regarding their own learning. This could be:
Demonstrating our new social skill of Group Decision Making, or engaging in conversation about materials, elements, and invention. In other words, students should be observing their world, asking questions, and making connections about their learning, so they can eventually share their newfound knowledge with others. Students are always able to work in Khan Academy and/or Rosetta Stone while at home as well.

*Please let me know if you observe your child participating in scholarship at home; these can be small acts! A simple email explaining their behavior would be much appreciated.
