It has been a short week for your children, but while they were away, teachers participated in four days of professional development. UNIS values lifelong learning, so high value is placed on professional growth and reflection. Last weekend, we attended a workshop led by Fiona Zinn titled ‘Listening to Learning in the Early Years.’ This was followed up with a two day workshop led by Fran Prolman where we discussed how to effectively build up students’ agency, self advocacy and their ability to take responsibility for their own learning. So much information to process and ideas to implement!
- Next week the PE department begins their athletics unit. Please send your child in athletic shoes on PE days as they will be outside.
- Make sure your child has a hat EVERY DAY so they can utilize the entire outdoor playground.
- Extra clothes! Extra clothes! Extra clothes!
- Next Wednesday is the snack sale.
Have a lovely weekend!
