Upper Elementary - March 11, 2016

Dear Families:

We may have, as Osric in Hamlet said, “A hit, a very palpable hit.” Our preparations for A Midsummer Night’s Dream are coming along smoothly! Students in the upper elementary class and middle school are creating the props for the play. The dress rehearsal for the production will be Tuesday, March 15. Please be sure to have your child’s costume in school by Tuesday. The performance is on Thursday, March 17 at 1:30pm in the banquet hall.

The class created a tentative schedule for the environmental project that is due on Monday, May 2. They have a suggested timeline on a March/April calendar. Several of our class members would like to present their work before Earth Day 2016 on April 22. We discussed how to conduct an interview. We talked about asking open-ended questions, paraphrasing, writing down only key points and taping the recording. It was interesting to Debbie to hear the class comments about recording the interview with a parent’s cell phone. Following up afterward should include writing a summary of the interview as soon as possible and writing a note of thanks to the interviewee.

Have a great weekend, Debbie & Architects
