I enjoy writing these letters and looking ahead at the week to come. It is with anticipation of the learning, spending time with our children and the joy of being a teacher that excites me most each week.
Friday was very fun – not only did we get to watch The Mighty together but also we began our discussions for the NESA Virtual Science Fair. I am hopeful that your child came home excited with anticipation for their online science projects! They will be part of a team that will ask questions; develop a hypothesis; write abstracts, progress reports and a final research report; interact via an e-diary (blog) with high school e-mentors from around the world; and they will create a wiki page to post all of their data and evaluations. It is going to be a wonderful learning experience. I will bring you up-to-date, as we get closer to our starting date in January.
Please be sure to mark your calendars for your conference time with me this week. I have invited our children to attend so do not hesitate to bring them along. I am anticipating these conferences with the expectation of open, honest communication and celebratory moments. Our children have been working hard and our conferences will be designed to honor their accomplishments as well as focus in on how we can better support them together. I am glad we are on the same team.
Be sure to note that both Tuesday and Wednesday are early dismissal days: 11:30 departure from school.
The following dates are No School Days:
Monday Nov. 23rd - Lebanese Independence Day
Thursday Nov. 26th & Friday Nov. 27th – Eid Al Adha and American Thanksgiving
Monday Nov. 30th – Professional Development Day

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to travel the world and to make a difference in other people's lives. I truly didn't believe I would become a teacher though; however, I am so glad that I am 5D's teacher! I am originally from Washington state but have enjoyed living in both West Africa and Lebanon. I am very blessed to have lived such an incredible life thus far.
