We are excited to announce that this year’s Kindergarten Graduation will be held on campus! The ceremony will take place on June 11th at 3:45 pm. Immediate household members of each graduate will be able to attend. We will closely follow all the recommendations from the CDC. We are so proud of all of the children this year! They have all worked so hard, adjusted to change, and have shown awesome progress as bilingual students. We look forward to celebrating their achievements with you.
6th Graders have been reading adventure novels based on stories about “castaways” e.g. Vendredi ou la Vie Sauvage and Le Royaume de Kensuké. They created a diorama to present these books in a fun and creative way. Each box included quotes, their opinion about the novel, 6 key objects, 5 keywords, 5 emotions, and the summary of a passage.
I found this activity to be a great success. The final project kept the students engaged throughout the book — and it was just as effective as having to answer typical comprehension questions. In this year of Covid, and of constant use of computers, I realized it was a breath of fresh air for students to create the diorama.

The 7th Grade reading journals are based on the same idea. Students created a journal out of pride — not for a grade or at the behest of a teacher! The main objective was to empower students to create a journal that matched their personality: Some students filled theirs with a summary of the novel while others captured their thoughts through art.
In the end, the goal is the same: using engaging projects to ensure students love reading.
