I hope you all enjoy this (short!) week!
For the last two weeks, students have worked in collaborative teams to become experts in one specific Viking related topic. Yesterday, each group presented their research and taught the rest of the class about their topic. Additionally, students created their name plates with Viking Runes in the Maker Space which you can see hanging on the wall. All students are now able to use the hot glue guns and cardboard cutters in the Maker Space which are skills that will come in handy as we continue to create.
We had wonderful week last week! Here are some highlights from our Thursday workshop last week:

This week is very exciting for the Homeschool Collaborative since 1. we will be able to make the move into our new classroom and 2. student workshops begin! Please see the attached document for the student roster and let me know if there are any changes with your student’s attendance.

PEC 1: Our first parent educator conference of the year, will be held on Weds., August 31st at the Hawthorne Memorial Center. See the DVIA newsletter for more info. I strongly encourage you to attend. Michelle Rainey will get the day started with inspiring words and useful information. A team of our veteran Homeschool Collaborative educators (Heidi, Shiori and Victoria) will share their strategies for developing student passion-inspired learning and lead our group in creating your own plan (based on your child(ren)’s interests) to use at home. There will be a selection of mini-sessions intended to fill your toolkit and we will end, as always, with a raffle.
Be on the lookout for SignUpGenius invites to ST Math password training and (optional) MAPS Assessment dates ASAP.
Thanks so much and have a wonderful second week!
