Do you remember the first day of school this year? It was exactly ten months ago today (August 24, 2015). Crazy, right? Here is a photo from the second day of school. Nobody ever remembers the second day of school!

June 22: the end of the road


We have reached the end of the road for Grade 4. What a year! In August, we made a promise that you would be confident, open-mined, independently thinking, well-balanced inquirers this year. And you delivered on that promise. We saw you teach each other about healthy choices. We watched you become famous explorers in the Living Museum. We witnessed as you made your own inventions to make the world a better place. We read, heard and experienced your thoughts and actions on children’s rights and responsibilities. We all worked hard to form a mini-economy and sell games to Grade 1 students. And we saw you take on challenges at the Grade 4 Camp.

How did you grow over the past year? In what ways did you stretch your limits as a learner? What are your goals for the next school year?

Yesterday, we had to say goodbye to a big group of students who are moving with their families to other parts of the world. We wish you all the best and please please please come back and visit your friends from Grade 4 and the school whenever you can. Most importantly, stay in contact with each other. Remember our time together over the past ten months. Have a great summer everyone!

Questions for Music class this morning

Please leave your answers in the comments!

Reflection questions about the performance last week:

Overall, how do you think our performance went?

What did the group do very well?

What could we have done better?

Think about these two key concepts: connection and responsibility. How do these two words relate to our performance?
