On May 21 and on May 24, 2018, La Troupe performed their adaptation of “La Méthode” by Sabine Revillet. The quality of the performance was topnotch, and reflected the hard work and efforts than were put in place throughout the school year: good acting presence on stage, perfect tone and voice, the play was a delight to watch.
Et vous, lisez La Méthode…
Congratulations to Ms. Addo, whose firm and talented guidance enabled students to grow and shine on stage! Congratulations to Chloe, Nathalie, Valentina, Emilia, Cameron, Lily, Jade, Emil, Gregoire, Philippine, Apolline, Juliette, Leonie and Anouk!
On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, as part of an interdisciplinary project conducted by Ms. Jacoway in US Science and Ms. Aseltine in English Language Arts, the 7th graders had an opportunity to visit the Cabrillo National Monument. They were tasked to identify several elements of park maintenance and restoration related to the different ecosystems that can be found in the park. They especially enjoyed exploring the tide pools!
Thank you to both teachers for this purposeful, well crafted and articulated project-based learning experience!
Thank you to Ms. Jacoway, the US Science and US Math teacher in Middle School, for initiating a “Fractions Clinic” boot camp in 7th grade! A group of 7th graders came for 4 intensive sessions of fraction practice for 4 Fridays at 8 am and sharpened their fraction skills. This clinic was recommended and implemented in order to ensure a stronger fraction foundation before the students move on to 8th grade next year.
Today Wednesday, May 23, and tomorrow Thursday, May 24, 2018, the San Diego Conference for Model United Nations is taking place. Our delegates were more than ready this morning as they boarded the bus with their teacher, Ms. Aseltine.
This is a really big event for the students and their teacher, and it represents all of the hard work that they have put in this year.
Several UN Resolutions have been selected, composed by Maya , Seiji , Patricia , Ellie, Emma , Sofia, Alex , and Nicolas! In addition, Emma ‘s position paper was selected to be read at the conference.
Congratulation to the JMUN club, and thank you to Ms. Aseltine for guiding the students through the process and hard work!
This morning, the Middle School students from the Spanish Theater Club performed an adaptation of the Three Little Pigs in Spanish, for the enjoyment of the preschoolers. The adaptation was humorous, inventive, and fun.
What is best than a theater project, which students embraced and took complete ownership of, in order to put language in action?
Congratulations to Chloé, Lilou, Kaylie, Jimmy, Nathalie, Emilia, Nolween, and their Spanish teacher, Ms. Patino for their creativity, hard work and efforts, good acting, and elegant and balanced modesty! It was simply perfect.
