JU-B Weekly Note

Happy Friday!

Here are some quick highlights of our week in JU-B!

Monday: We finished reading and commenting on the second round blog entries! We enjoyed extra SSR time for our Jerry Spinelli books and small, informal discussion groups on these texts.

Tuesday: Students met with our city-state groups to continue prepping for the Olympics! Students worked hard throughout the week on planning their group’s event, creating flair for the winners of the event, writing their persuasive paragraph, designing a city-state flag and chant, and generally learning about their given city-state!

Wednesday: We had a LOVELY surprise party in our classroom that made a teacher feel incredibly loved. Thank you!

Thursday: Awbury Day! We wrapped up our partnership with Wissahickon, found duck skulls, examined brand-new baby birds, and dug invasives, and much more!

Friday: Continued prepping for our Olympic Opening Ceremony in music, worked on Olympic medals in art, and participated in the P.E. handball Olympic event!

Don’t forget, next week is ERBS! While we hope these things can happen all the time, please help your child to

  • Get plant of sleep by going to bed early.
  • Eat a good breakfast each morning.
  • Pack enough snacks and lunch.
  • Bring a water bottle.
  • Arrive at school on time.
  • Stay calm!

With love,

Hilary and Dan
