  • 8th Grade Community Project Symposium- all are welcome!

    May 22, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
    Summit Room

    All are welcome to join us next Tuesday, May 22nd, from 8:45-10:00 am for the 8th Grade Community Project Symposium in the Summit Room. The community project focuses on community and service, encouraging students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. The community project gives students an opportunity to develop awareness of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning. As a consolidation of learning, work on the community project engages students in a sustained, in-depth inquiry leading to service as action in the community. Community projects are student-centered and they enable students to engage in practical explorations through a cycle of inquiry, action and reflection. They help students to develop the attributes of the IB learner profile, provide students with an essential opportunity to demonstrate “approaches to learning” (ATL) skills developed through the IB Middle Years Program, and foster the development of independent, lifelong learners. Our students have worked on their projects since the beginning of the year, and they are eager to share their projects with the community. We hope you can come and see what they have accomplished!

Bookends Book Club

Upper Elementary students & parents enjoy evening book discussions

Book Club for students and parents

Bookends Club met this week to do a parent/child discussion on the collective work of poetry of author Jacqueline Woodson.  Ms. Woodson tells her story of growing up as an African American in the 1960’s and 70’s through poems from each stage of her childhood.
Parents and students enjoyed learning a bit more about that era of American history as it relates to the Civil Rights Movement.  The lesson was anchored around the theme of ‘personal and collective dreams’ as referenced in the title of the book, the epigraph of Langston Hughes’s poem ‘Dream’ poem, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.
Students and parents then did personal reflections and sharing around understanding what a memoir is, creating a biographical poem of their own, and sharing favorite poems and passages.  The group focused on the literary tool of metaphors, similes, rhyme, and repetition.   
The club has been run this year by Mrs. Morrison and Mrs. Shangle, who alternate sessions of leading the evening class. Mrs. Meisenbacher has been a creative support in designing snacks that are tied to each book’s theme and are homemade and delicious!   The club will be available next year for all Upper Elementary students and their parents.
