It was nice to see all of you at the picnic Friday afternoon. Thank you for coming by and organizing the class 2d memory booklet, I love it!
Now we have one last fun week at school. On Monday is our school-wide project day with a theme of respect. Our class will take the day to learn how to work together and rely on each other's skillsets to achieve a goal. We will start out by playing some community-building games. There will be no winners or losers, students can only win as a group. We will then move on to learning about each other's uniqueness and differences. Students will choose one of four animals for which they will create and present a poster. They will brainstorm on the characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of their chosen animal and will explore how a problem can be solved from their animal's perspective. Finally, students will divide into mixed groups to begin brainstorming to find solutions to the same problem by combining the different perspectives. After a break and recess we will go outside into the Heinrich-Laehr Park and build something as a group.
On Wednesday author Lena Hach will come visit us and read in the library from her latest book 'Der verückte Erfinderschuppen'.All students will be able to attend.
Please remember that Friday is early dismissal. I will bring the students out for pick-up at 10:20. All grades EC-11 will be dismissed at the same time, so it tends to get a little chaotic at that time. If you are going to pick up your child, please let me know in advance via mail. Please meet us in the front at the main entrance to the building. All other students will go to Hort or Late Birds according to their regular routine if I don't hear from you.
On Friday the students will receive their report card in a sealed envelope; the report card is a private document and I will ask the students to wait to open the envelopes until they are at home with you.
You can support your child during summer vacation by inspiring them to read to their heart's desire and letting them play Blitzrechnen to repeat and practice their math strategies so that they have a confident start into 3rd grade.
I wish you all a happy summer, enjoy the peace and quiet wherever you are!
In case your child is sick and will not attend school, please let me know vie email on that day. Please also CC the email to our school administration firstname.lastname@example.org just in case I am not at school either. After you child returns I will need a written excuse from you, or a Krankschreibung from your pediatrition if your child was out for longer than 3 days.
This website will be an important tool for staying informed about what is happening in class, about upcoming events, requests and other class business. I will update the website on a weekly basis on Sunday afternoons. Thank you for checking in regularly! Communication is key for a good and trustful parent-teacher relationship. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions do not hesitate to e-mail me: email@example.com or send a note to school with your child and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
