Happy Constitution Day, everyone!
Today we celebrated Constitution Day by pairing up to read about the Constitution! Then we used our new knowledge to solve clues, unlock locks, and problem-solve through a Constitution-themed Escape Room! While we learned about the creation and content of the Highest Law of the Land, we also practiced Growth Mindset and problem-solving strategies. We were able to celebrate when we had a First Attempt In Learning, and learned from mistakes to productively struggle through some tough clues!
The Father of the Constitution, James Madison, would have been proud of us today!
Go Team Thneed Socks!
- Next week we will begin our first set of practice safety drills for the year.
- The district has adopted a K-12 behavior matrix that is familiar to Georgetown. The district model, SOAR, blends beautifully with our school mission of BE NICE, WORK HARD, LEARN WELL. We want our kids to SOAR wherever they are at Georgetown — and many of our existing expectations have meshed well with BE SAFE, OWN IT, ACT RESPONSIBLY and BE RESPECTFUL. This week our SOAR focus was the BUS. In coming weeks we’ll focus on the playground, lunchroom, and hallway behaviors.
Birthdays are wonderful opportunities to celebrate each child in our classroom. I will provide a treat for each student on his or her birthday or on the closest school day. If a child has a summer birthday, we’ll celebrate on his or her half birthday. Some families also like to celebrate birthdays by sending in a treat for the class, while others opt not to send anything. In the interest of health and safety of all students, fifth grade teachers are asking that families do not send in food or toys as birthday treats.
Instead, please consider sending something for the class to enjoy such as:
- A game for the classroom
- A classroom book (A nice touch would be to your child pick it out, sign it, and date it.)
- A classroom set of items for each child to keep such as pencils, pens, erasers, markers, etc.
The items listed above will still make your child feel special and they will last a lot longer than a food item.
