Some of our younger students are learning about the Joyful Mysteries and created these beautiful works of art to decorate our hallways!
The MQA 2016-17 STREAM year is off to a great start! All of the classes started their STREAM academies. The upper grades began the Robotics program.
Each grade level is doing a unique academy. Some examples are: Kindergarten is learning about God’s World, first grade built a water slide, and there are classes doing Kitchen Chem!
In addition to our academies are special science kits that will be used throughout the year. Each grade level will complete three engineering designs. We look forward to the many guest speakers and field trips that have been planned for this school year. Maybe your child will be snowshoeing at Tifft Nature Preserve or making a terrarium with help from the Botanical Gardens. It will be a busy STREAM year!
October – AIS Reading begins
This year new changes have been implemented so I am in uncharted territory so to speak. Schedules may change but for now those coming to AIS Reading have their schedules and parent letters have gone home.
Students will be starting a new web-based ciruculum called MobyMax. Students will be able to use this program that will tailor their missing reading skills with individualized lessons quickly improving their reading skills. Once we have become familiar with using this in class students will be able to use this at home and you will be able to monitor their progress if you would like. Information on this will be sent home in a few weeks.
I’m looking forward to seeing all my student’s smiling faces in my classroom again as we begin a new school year together!
