K-8 News & Events
Please read through the important dates and information that was shared in Mrs. Unegbu's News & Notes email from March 04.

Classroom Recap: On Friday 2/25/22, seventh grade students had their Ceremony of Twelve, which is from the novel they recently finished, The Giver. Two surprise visitors made it to the ELA classes to "assign" students their jobs for life. The Chief Elders reported that they have been observing students for the last several months and listening to their interests to give them the careers that they will have for life, similar to the book. Students had a fun time giving mini speeches and cheering each other on. We can't wait to see what's next for them!
Activities Recap: Last month, fifteen Jr. Model UN delegates attended the Jr. Model UN Preparatory Conference hosted virtually by the World Affairs Council (WAC) of Philadelphia. Student diplomats from 6-8th grade studied parliamentary procedure, how to write and amend resolutions, and learned from WAC experts about how to become more refined and informed student delegates while crafting initial ideas about how to respond to the world's lack of sustainable food systems and ever-growing cities.
Important Dates

Classroom Recap: Students in Ms. Hartzell's 3B class took some time to create unity through a team building activity using a hula hoop. Students stood in a circle while holding hands. The hula hoop was locked between two students and they had to climb through while keeping their hands locked together. After that, they sat in a circle and rolled the hoop to someone they wanted to deliver a compliment to.
