Week 9

What a week! Two Lower School Principal candidate visits, four admission candidate interviews, Dr. Eddie Moore on campus leading diversity discussions, girls and boys soccer post season games, MS/US Visitor Morning, tech trainings on each campus, and of course, the wonderful flurry of learning that happens everyday here at FCS. I think we all deserve a wonderful weekend.

BOOK TALK – We will be discussing the role of PLAY in education. Everyone is welcome. Join us in the OPA room on Wednesday from 3:30 – 5:00. Please let me know if you plan to attend so I can supply enough goodies to keep us satiated.

Sue Kirk and Regina Ziffer for assisting the 5th grade students in their “Be a Giver to the River” video production.
Steve Patterson and Christina Perez for the organization and orchestration of Dr. Moore’s visit.

LD Awareness
Although the “month of awareness” is over, I think it would be appropriate to continue to highlight this topic each week.

At our Faculty In-Service last month Erika H. inquired about a suggested reading around the topic of LD. There are so many great books available but one of my personal favorites is The Myth of Laziness by Mel Levine. If anyone is interested I would love to do an after school book talk on this piece.

In addition, this website has some great online modules to assist in learning about and helping students who learn differently. Why not grab a friend and watch one together?

Discussion for the Week
I received this article from three friends last week. It is definitely worth a read. If you are not already familiar with Sugata Mitra and his work you can watch his TED TALK for more information on his educational research.
