There is a lot of drama going on in Room 24 these days. Specifically, Michael Wehrli’s Drama class has the kids excited about practicing theater skills and gearing up for an evening performance on Nov. 13. The class will continue to meet every Monday through Thursday with Michael up to the day of the performance.
Our trip to Bonneville on Monday, October 27 is quickly approaching. Thank you to those parents who have volunteered to join us on this fun field trip. It is possible that the bus will be too full and some parents might have to carpool to Bonneville.
We are reading a new book called One for the Murphys that is part of the Global Read Aloud project. I plan on having the students do lots of reflections on this realistic fiction book and at some point we will be doing at least one Skype session with another school somewhere in the United States. A one-stop spot for most of the information needed for this assignment is www.50states.com.
Students are working on a home project about a state of their choice. Information was sent home on Thursday of last week. If your son or daughter doesn’t have the information, please let me know and I’ll send home a duplicate. The project is due on Monday, October 27. If it is finished early, it can be brought in anytime. These will be displayed in the hallway. I can’t wait to see what our creative students come up with!
