Dear Families,

My sincere thanks to all of the family members who joined our party animals and made such a festive celebration!  We had just the right balance of active and peaceful; kids practiced the skill of choosing the right party activities for themselves.  It truly was a good time, and a nice way to say “goodbye” to Gaggles, Flocks and Families.  It was fun to learn about all kinds of animals and how they work in groups to stay safe, work together and help each other. 

Let It Shine!

This week we launch our new unit of study, “Let it Shine!” This is another theme with different layers of meaning.  We will learn about the importance of light in the world- (light comes from the sun, is necessary for life, makes the seasons change, helps us see, helps us grow.) We will also explore the deeper, metaphorical meanings of light, celebrations of light, and think about our unique identities.  Our key questions are:

*What is light?

*How do people around the world celebrate with light?

* How do we let our own lights shine?

An important part of our study will be to learn about role models- true stories of people who have found ways to let their lights shine by being of service to others.  We will begin with Ali Mohammed Baker, The Librarian of Basra, who writes, “In the Koran, the first thing God said to Mohammed was, ‘Read.’”  Ask your child to share the stories with you, and tell your child about your own role models as we explore light together.

Coming Up:

*Friday, November 6 qt 7:30 AM. Our student body will have its picture taken!  Meet in 102 as usual and we’ll go to the “chip field” together.  A photographer will be on the roof. Don’t be late!

*Friday, November 6, right AFTER school- Baby Shower for A’Neja Bell’s new baby brother, in 102.  Contact Sarah Cooper Evans for details and let us know if you are coming. 

*The Lantern Walk!  Saturday, November 7, 5-6 p.m. at “The Bowl,”  40th and Dupont, Lyndale Farmstead Park.  Bring a treat to share, and dress to play outside. We’ll bring the lanterns.

*Stone Soup Lunch- November 11:30-12:30 in room 102

It’s clear, that as the days grow shorter, we  get busier!  We’ll continue to take care of ourselves and each other as we learn and grow in room 102.  Thanks!  Kristin
