There is a lot going on in May. More celebrations of our learning all year, performances from our musicians and actors and examples of action to make our world a better place. We started off our week with the music of our Jazz Band and they had everyone tapping their feet. Don't forget to check out all of our musicians at the Rock Hall on May 18th. Check out the Communicator for details.
We also had a visit from Fresh Fork Market and learned about seeds, healthy eating and how to start your own garden. Everyone left with some green bean seeds to plant. Take acton and start a garden this summer.
We had a mother guest stop by from the Cleveland Red Cross. We learned more about the body systems and the different typos of blood cells. We also learned about the blood drive and the system that provides blood to those in need. Giving blood is another great way for adults to take action. Systems work together and show our connection to each other.
Our 4th grade travelers learned about government and visited our state capital last week. They shared their learning at Morning meeting.
Check out their thinking and research about the branches of the US government and the forming of our government.
Reflection on the the Columbus trip, as well as the role of function.
Celebrating poetry and creating poems. Upcycle old book pages and create new work. More ways to make the world a better place.
Check out second grade scientists work with energy and solving problems. Making things and testing them is a great way to find solutions to problems. So many ways to do something with what we have learned.
Conner and Rachel form Campus District were here on Wednesday to get our opinions as they make our street more beautiful. We had a chance to vote on crosswalk designs that will be painted outside the school the summer.
This year's third grade musical was a huge success. These performers, set designers and stage crew were committed and courageous. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful show. Thank you to our Arts teachers and our grade three families for all their hard work and support. Check out the slideshow below. It was amazing.
Eighth grader, Lania shared a TED style talk with MYP as a part of her Community Project. She discussed the topic of suicide and depression with courage and inspiration and left us with the message, "YOU MATTER".
More possibilities for action to support the Arts at our school. Check out this list of common items to help MYP artists continue to create and a great way to reuse instead if throw away.
All these ideas and action make our school, our neighborhood and our world a better place. Let's keep the energy going and make this a summer of action. We are what we do! Take some time to write in an action journal or post on Twitter or Instagram to share all the ways we have changed from our learning.
