Rounding the bend of the end of our second full week of school here on Avenue P. Stumbled upon this announcement today and realized that I am hoping to get an e-mail from some of our upper grade students five years from now, inviting me to come and hear them speak here:
Student Voice Conference: High School students are participating in a big student voice conference this Saturday – one on a panel discussion about national education trends and student voice facilitated by Amanda Ripley (Time Magazine, The Atlantic, Smartest Kids in the World) and another on a roundtable about innovation facilitated by Dell. If you’d like to attend, here are the details: http://stuvoice.org/student-voice-live/
May be worth checking out!
Good morning everyone,
Don’t forget to sign up to follow the notes from the office (mine!) on the bsi686.org website. (Class page info will come tom’w; I know some of you are having issues!)
Just wanted to give you an idea of what curriculum night will look like this year as in some cases, we will follow a different format than previous years.
Kindergarten through 4th grade parents are invited to informally gather in your child’s classroom from 5:30 until 6. At 6, the presentation will begin. (During K-3 presentations, you will hear from Ms. Mallery, the science teacher, Ms. Nanna, the art Teacher and Marcy, our Math Coach supporting K-3).
Fourth grade parents are invited to the Science Lab at 5:30 in 409 for a presentation from Ms. Seitz; Sixth grade parents are invited to the Science Lab at 5:45 until 6 for a presentation on 6th grade science. (Fifth grade parents will meet with Ms. Seitz during their rotation with all 5th grade teachers between 6 and 7:00 p.m.)
Fifth and 6th grade parents will visit Humanities, Math and Science, ending up in Advisory at 6:45 p.m.
You’ll hear from us again on this with details about where to go and when, I just wanted you to know about the 5:30 kick off time so you can plan your afternoon and evening accordingly.
Thursday evening, October 2nd, we will host Curriculum Night here at BSI in your child’s classroom. Stay tuned for more details.
