“It’s cool to be kind!”
Last week we celebrated the Paso Verde School Kindness Campaign. From October 29th – November 2nd our scholars decorated classroom doors, participated in restorative circles, dressed up in spirited costumes, and our 5th graders even created a podcast on kindness. Listen below!
To celebrate California Thursday we had a spectacular interactive assembly thanks to Fiery Ginger Farms. Each of our scholars went home with freshly harvested lettuce and dates for Gardening with Kids.To secure your spot SIGN UP.
Local Raley’s representative; Harley announced that we have been awarded a grant to help support our Kitchen and Garden classes.
We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
Families Help Video Project
Mr. Bornstein’s PVS Second Grade Class
IB Unit 1 Central Idea: Our family unit and friends help us and teach us how to operate as people.
Key Concept: Connection
Line of Inquiry:An inquiry into how families grow and interact.
Project description: We have been doing a lot of reflection on our central idea for our current IB unit of inquiry. We did some writing specifically thinking about times when our family helped us. We decided to make a fun video project out of it as a way to share our memories and help demonstrate the truth of our central idea. Participation in the filming part of the project was not mandatory, only those students who desired to be filmed participated.
Special thanks to:
Yating Campbell for help with filming
Mrs. Jarrell, Ms. Comstock, Mr. Noah, and Mrs. Fast for letting me film you
