Week 7: September 5-8
Hello Everyone. I hope you enjoyed your 3 day weekend as much as I did! It was nice to spend some time with my family, especially my grandkids!
On Saturday, October 21st we are pleased to announce our Electives Showcase! This is an evening event that is listed in the syllabus for each electives class. Students in the Spanish classes will be singing, dancing and setting up a photo booth. ASL students will be signing some songs. and the students in dance, yoga and choir will also be performing. Miss Tomasek’s students will be displaying their amazing artwork and Mr. Ramos will be leading his advanced culinary and bakery students in providing world class hors d’ oeuvres! This is a marvelous opportunity to witness first hand what your child is learning in the classroom and see the progress that they are making this year. Preparation and learning for the Electives Showcase is tied to the curriculum being taught in class and to the World Language Standards. As this is performance based students are required to attend. Again, think Family Fun Night! The fun will begin at 5:45 pm with hors d’ oeuvres and interactive entertainment (statuettes, photo booth, mariachi music, small groups etc.) and then the program will begin at 6:45 p.m. See the formstack below for purchasing your tickets.
