Congratulations, Rising Class of 2023 Ospreys & their Parentals,,

We hope that this letter finds you healthy and well. We are reaching out to inform you of the 9th Grade Transitional Presentation of Learning (TPOL), digital kickoff on Monday, 5/18/2020, at 10:00am . Students: please, please, please make a plan to be there. 

This year, we have assigned each student to a small group and an instructional coach (a beloved teacher!) We believe this will be the best way to foster connection between students, and also make sure that students are receiving 1 on 1 support as they begin the important work of reflecting on their entire 9th grade year.

The Monday, May 18 10:00am kickoff will take place in small student groups. At the kick-off, we will share the TPOL prep document, go over this Spring’s TPOL format and expectations, and answer questions. It is a critical prerequisite that all 9th graders attend this meeting to fully understand what is expected of them. If a student has a legitimate reason for not being able to attend, then they need to email their Mentor Teacher ASAP.   

“We do not learn from experience...we learn from reflecting on experience.” 
~ John Dewey

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the bitterest.” ~ Confucius
