Dear JU-D Families,
We just wrapped up a week of ERB testing, and as the sun finally peeks out, students are beginning to feel that it’s summer. Still, there’s a lot of work going on in these dog days of the school year. City-state groups have been meeting to finalize a massive amount of preparation for the Olympics next week. Students have continued to bring a huge amount of energy to their work as the finish chants, flags, flair, and event planning. Today students spent their day designing, discussing, and building full-sized boats out of nothing but cardboard and duct tape. We will be floating these vessels next Thursday at the Friends Select pool. Students will compete to stay afloat the longest and to complete the most laps in the pool.
Next week all the work will pay off. Opening ceremonies will take place Tuesday at 10:35am. Students will proudly present their city-state and give an overview of their games. Parents are encouraged to attend the festivities to get a taste of the epic end of the year in JU. We hope to see you there. Enjoy the long weekend and this early summer weather!
Noelle and Nick
