This week students started a new unit in ELA, our Charley Harper art & poetry unit. Students have been studying figurative language, sound devices, word play, etc. After Earth Week, students will have a chance to put their learning on display by crafting their own poetry portfolio – including digital artwork inspired by nature, in true Charley Harper style.
In social studies, painting of masks has occupied the majority of the week. Please *save the date* for our Wax Museum performance: May 13th. The whole school will be visiting, and parents are also welcome to observe; the specific schedule will be released closer to the day of. For this special event, students may earn up to 5 points of extra credit if they choose to dress up/bring in props (as always, all school rules apply).
