What a great adventure this school has been!!!Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of your child’s education. I hope I have made as much of an impact on them, as they have had on me. I will miss each and every one of my precious kiddos. I know great things await them in the future!
Please join us on Friday morning for our last All School Mass at 8am. Immediately following mass will be our award/diploma ceremony. Following awards we will head to the school for some fun with Magic Wayne. Dismissal is at 11:30, but parents are free to take their child at any time. I hope you can join us.
Third and fifth grade explored the world of story telling through the lens’ of other cultures. Students learned about the dances of the Irish, the colorful mighty dragon of the Chinese, the hieroglyphics of the Ancient Egyptians, the gods and goddess of the Grecian, and the songs of the Native Americans. Applying this new found knowledge the students worked in groups to tell their own story using the methods of the culture they researched. Ms. Hamlett and I are extremely proud of our students. They have a deeper understanding of other cultures, why stories are so important to sharing traditions, and why knowing your own heritage and story is important for future generations.
To conclude our project a friend of Ms. Hamlett joined us. The inspiring Garteh Laffely shared is award winning Native American Flute skills with the SJV community. He connected culture to community through his own story. We were happy to honest Gareth and hope to have other interactions with him in the future.
Check out the talent of our students and of Gareth!
