We will hold an all-school meeting on Wednesday, May 15th at u.school from 6:00-7:00 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to go over what was discussed and approved at the annual board meeting (held 5/1), which includes the budget for next year, enrollment numbers and school location. We will also be available to answer questions. Both students and parents are invited. Any input you have regarding school next year is welcome.
For the next book club meeting (on Monday in the afternoon 5/6) please read the attached short story and be prepared to discuss. https://libcom.org/files/ursula-k-le-guin-the-ones-who-walk-away-from-omelas.pdf
The Roth Family (Leo and Adam) is offering students the opportunity to stargaze at their beautiful home this Saturday evening. Thanks, Roth family!
Stargazing is Saturday 6-ish to 9ish at our house. 826 S. Farm Road 207 Spfld. 65802. People can bring blankets to sit on in the field- if not too wet. If people want to bring some food, that’s ok. We will have s’mores and water. We will look at moon phases and the constellation of the month, Leo. Also, we will record star magnitude on the globeatnight.org site as a way to measure the effects of light pollution on the night sky. If it’s rainy, we bring it all inside.
For our first meeting on Tuesday, the 7th read through chapter 6, stop at the beginning of 7.
For the afternoon of Friday, May 3rd we will look at “happy” poetry – poems that present imagery that makes us feel good. Find a poem or song that makes you feel good and bring it to class.
For Thursday, May 2nd (morning) the topic is Amazon Rain Forest critters.
Because we have so much to do on DWNTWN today, we will have poetry class on Monday afternoon. The topic is “protest.” Please bring a speech, poem or lyrics to a song that you think is protesting someone or something. We will discuss the intent of the words.
Please add agenda items in comments.
Hi students, I have been sick. My doctor asked that I stay home one more day. On Wednesday we will wrap up The one and Only Ivan and then depending on who goes to the baseball game we could also wrap The Color Purple and start watching the movie. If not Wed. for TCP then Thursday. We probably have time to read one more book in both groups to be thinking about that.
Poetry will be Thursday as usual.
