Dear Parents:
 
Our much ancipated week of Classroom Without Walls has arrived. Be-ginning on Monday, February 10 unl February 14, all of the Middle School students will be involved in acvies that will raise their aware-ness about the Philippines and engage them with our service learning partners. In addion to learning about culture, the students interact with children and adults from local communies and discover ways that they can be acve, empathec cizens. During the weekend, please insure that your child is prepared for their parcular trip. When they return, also take me to engage your child and discuss ways that your child can build on the experience. In November students had school pictures taken. The photographer will be back on
 
Tuesday, February 18
 
for retakes of students that were absent during the rst round. New students will also be photographed on this day.
 
Our next parent coee is on
 
Thursday, February 20 starng at 7:45 A.M. We look forward to meeng with you and sharing more about develop-ments with how we assess and grade students, along with changes to technology and how we use laptops in the middle school.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
 
Yours in Educaon,
