Dear Parents,

Sharing the Planet: We have had a busy week of hard work mixed with fun Chinese New Year activities! When we return from the holiday, the students will finish their Sharing the Planet ignite talks which will be recorded on Friday, February 15. The students have chosen topics they care about related to our Central Idea: Involvement in community action can make a difference in the world. Each student will create an ignite talk of no more than 2 minutes using up to 5 images. The students have identified a need and will advocate for community action related to the need.

Several students have missed class for various reasons this week. I have uploaded (on Google Classroom) the persuasive organizer students need to fill out to help them with their talk. I will also upload related resources. Students who missed a lot of class this week might want to spend some time working on their talk by filling the organizer over the break ,as all of the talks need to be completed by the end of the first week back.

Headphones/Earbuds: Please make sure that your child has a pair of functioning, reliable headphones or earbuds. They can be kept a can keep at school and used to access relevant videos in class.

Exhibition: Upon our return from the holiday, students will begin doing more focused work on their exhibition projects.  For more information please click on the link below.

I hope that you all have a lovely Chinese New Year holiday!

Kung Hei Fat Choi!
