Monday Mail - December 7
December 7, 2009
My Sunday morning was spent with many of you walking the 5k portion of the Beirut Marathon. It was a little bit rainy but still awfully fun to be a part of such a healthy and positive event. I am impressed with how enthusiastic and positive our children were with the questionable weather and the massive crowds of people; their optimism is refreshing. It is also commendable that the children noticed all of the littering during the race and chose to collect bottle caps for our school wide recycling program. Thank you to all of you parents that were willing and able to join us. I am glad you were there.
We will kick off our Social Studies unit on Early Man this week. There is an informative response link on my website called Early Man that I would like each child to complete by Thursday Dec 10th – please remind them to check it out and respond. I am using it as a formative assessment to simply see what they may already know about this topic. Next week, we will take a little trip to the Movenpick old port to search for flint and other “fossilized” artifacts. It will be an hour of discovery and fun.
Please be sure to inquire about our “Empathy Celebration” next week. On Wednesday, the 16th of December, many of you will be joining us for our celebration. It will be an hour honoring you and others in our lives who embody the attributes of empathy, kindness and caring. I guarantee you will be blown away by the articulation and presentation of character education in 5D. Our festivities begin at 9:30.
Thank you for all of your loving support. This has been such a magnificent three months of school. I look forward to each day with anticipation and joy. Only two weeks before winter break…
Ms. Amy Branch

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.
