JU-A Weekly Notes

Dear JU-A Families,

It was wonderful to see so many of you for our learning celebration on Thursday!  JU-A students were happy to welcome you into our classroom to share their learning with you.  In addition to the learning celebration we had two other special events this week:

On Tuesday, TPS welcomed Dr. Omékongo Dibinga to speak to the middle schoolers and JU students.  Omékongo shared his inspirational life story and challenged us to be upstanders in our daily lives.  

After the learning celebration on Thursday, Matt Murray returned to work with students on becoming mindful and safe online media users.  This week students learned how to create secure passwords.

JU students have been generating many questions as part of the bodies curriculum.  This week, we decided to give students more space and time to ask questions.  We’ll return to introducing new content next week.

Here are some questions you can ask at home this weekend:

  •     What does it mean to be an upstander?  
  •     How can you be an upstander at school?
  •     What did it feel like to present your work at the learning celebration?

Have a great weekend!

Tim & Julia
