Dear Koraes Families,
It has been a busy week for our students. Our MS and grade 5 had absolutely fabulous weather for their Outdoor Ed field trip to support team building. See the class website for pictures. The thirstproject.org was here earlier in the week to support service learning in grades 3-8. Students had a visit from Maria Ullmann from the Thirst Project, who shared the work they are doing in Third World Countries. The Thirst Project is a non-profit organization whose aim is to bring safe drinking water to communities around the world where it is not immediately available. See the website for additional pictures from the presentation.
Curious Questions from our students:
Niko K (4): Which country was the first to build a well?
Emmy M (5): Can we donate online?
Dean C (4): When do you think that the wells will be done in those countries, 2050?
Alexis P (4): How long does it take to finish building a well and how much does it cost?
Students worked on building their just right book bin in reading classes. Ask your child about how to do that in grades 1-8. Thank you parents who joined us for the MAP presentation this week. We enjoyed sharing more information with you regarding our instructional practices and how we use data to drive instruction for students in a differentiated way.
We held the fourth volunteer training this week. If you haven't attended a meeting, you will be unable to volunteer in any capacity until you have attended the meeting and completed the paperwork. At this time another meeting has not been scheduled.
Psalm 16:8-9 “I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.”
God will always be present in your life and no matter what happens, you should always remember that He is there for you. That thought alone should bring you happiness.
Book Fair is next week. The evening Fair is on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 5:30 - 6:30. Childcare will be available for the School Board meeting beginning at 6:30 in the East Room. All are welcome to attend.
