JU-D Weekly Note

Dear Families,

The finish line is in sight in JU-D. Students spent the penultimate week of school disassembling our cluttered classroom, building city centers for our simulation, and enjoying the warm weather on our field day. 

It all started with a colossal room cleanup. The teahouse, big map of China, and countless cluttered walls were taken apart in a flurry of deconstruction. When students weren't disassembling the room, they were meeting in mixed city groups. The preparation for next week’s Silk Routes simulation wrapped up as students finalized their city centers and finished developing their characters. Friday capped off an excellent week as the entire TPS community gathered for some healthy competition at Markward Playground. There were relay races, soccer variants, and a good old-fashioned tug-of-war. It was a wonderful way to cap off the week.

We are looking forward to the start of our simulation on Monday. Be sure to talk to your kids about the rich and historically accurate character that they’ve created.
