Happy Friday, JU Families!
This week we kicked off our Olympics in earnest! On Wednesday, students did a wonderful job in their official opening ceremonies. In city-state groups, students performed a dance and music piece in honor of a specific god. Students read persuasive speeches to explain the upcoming olympic events, sang songs, shared their flags, and performed their cheers. Then, we headed out to Markward Park for our relay race! Since Wednesday, students competed in a preliminary round of Jeopardy and continued with handball competitions in P.E.
On Thursday, we headed to Friends Select School in order to use their pool for our cardboard boat competition. Amazingly, every single boat stayed afloat for more than 10 minutes! The day was incredible exciting! Ask your child about how we calculated the density of the boats, which they thought would last the longest, and how it did!
On Friday, students participated in the laughter competition, JU’s Got Humor! Ask your child what his or her city-state did for the performance!
Next week, we’ll continue on with our competition as we have a scavenger hunt, final rounds of jeopardy, catapult contests, and SCEE events! It’s be a busy week a great way to keep ourselves motivated all the way to graduation!
This will be our final Friday note for the 2015-2016 school year. Thank you for sharing your children with us for a lovely school year. We’ve been consistently working hard and having fun. Thank you for your part in all of this!
Lots of love,
Hilary and Dan
