*No Homework Tonight! There will be silent reading homework over the weekend that students will get tomorrow!

Today, students started a new excerpt from Tom Sawyer called, “Tom’s Secret”. They looked at key details in the first part of the story, and then used that to write a summary.

Students also reflected on their experiences with service learning. As we finish up our unit, students thought about:

  • What does service learning mean to me?
  • What does service learning make people feel?
  • What advice would you give to students about to start their service learning projects?
  • What is the lasting impact we can take away from service learning?

Today, Rahini presented her project on working with Thursday’s Lunch, an organization that gives food to people experiencing homelessness.

Again, I am so proud of the work that the students have accomplished this year. It is incredibly moving to see the work that the students have achieved in such a small amount of time, and I am sure that their impact will continue to inspire people into the future. Thank you for all of the support from families to help students with their projects!
