Week of 1/3/18-1/5/18

Hello Families! Happy New Year!

As we start this week, I would like to ask you to send pictures of your kiddo’s favorite spot in Spokane to Amme Paluch by Wednesday, January 10th.

Academically, students will be picking out a Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel for a book report due later this month or early next month. They need to bring their choice of book by Monday, January 8th. From there, students will be determining their own reading schedule as well as when they will complete required tasks. At this point, the estimated date of completion is 2/1/2018. This date will very likely be modified based on which books the kids choose.  The will include a list of questions as well as a “Postcard” project that will incorporate elements of the exposition to highlight their novel. To this end, in Humanities, we will be reviewing plot diagrams in preparation for the novel study. A copy of the diagram template is available on the website.

Schoolwide, The Denim and Diamonds Auction will be held on February 2nd and I hope to see all of you there! In the same vein, students will start using the new gym for PE starting in February. The space is absolutely breathtaking, so if you have not had the opportunity to check it out, I strongly encourage you do so! Garco has done some really incredible work.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, email is the best way to contact me.

Thank you for sharing your kids with me, I look forward to a wonderful New Year with them!
