Community Meeting

We had our first community meeting this Wednesday!  All the new students in the lower school were introduced, and we learned a little more about sustainability this year. The school's sustainability goal this year is R.O.T.--reduce our trash!

The big theme was optimism!  As part of our Writers' Workshop, we read the story The Little Engine That Could.  It helped us to remind ourselves "I think I can, I think I can" when we are writing, and stay optimistic.

After community meeting, we wanted to explore optimism further.  We read Whistle For Willie and tried to whistle.  Some children shared how they learned to whistle by trying and trying again. What optimism and perseverance (our theme for next month)!

Thank you to those parents who came to see community meeting.  If you are interested in hearing our community meeting song, "This is Where I Live, click here.  It's a catchy song!
