Our final full week of learning was both wonderfully energetic and peacefully reflective. Students worked both individually and together as a group to develop the tools they plan to use to help with all the upcoming transitions. Ms. Kris was an integral part of our community as we discussed transitions:
In Social Studies, students learned about how some North American cultures express their creativity and values through totem poles. Students then used their own cultural iceberg and the inspiration of the animals and birds used on totem poles to create their very own totem pole showing what they value.
At this time of year we are all looking forward to summer break with excitement. Today was our last Friday morning meeting (ask your students about our special Friday morning meeting greeting and message) which makes me reflect on the wonderful year of learning we have had together. I will miss our community and each member of our community; however, as a digital citizen, I hope to stay connected with these wonderful children and their families. Thank you to all for your support and involvement this year.

VERY IMPORTANT: Read A Million Minutes! – UNIS Hanoi Reads Summer 2019
If everyone reads for just 30 minutes a day, at least five days a week in the long holiday (14 June – 13 August 2019), together we can read for a million minutes!
You can read anything! Listening to an audiobook while you travel counts as “reading” as well.
Students who read the most will be rewarded. The grade that reads for the most minutes will get a unique prize. If we succeed in reaching the million minutes mark for the school.
