Language Acquisition

Create a language-rich environment.

English language learners will benefit from increased exposure to print and language. A print-rich environment includes access to books and reference materials, labels and posters, and student work on bulletin boards. Word walls are also a great support for ELLs, and may be organized around a number of concepts.

MYP Lunch Revisited

Hello MYP Rockstars,

A few reminders from our assembly last Friday…

-We love you and want to keep you safe and organized. So…

-Please go to your locker right after Block 4 and again five minutes before the start of Block 5 (on the bell).

Why? It’s just a good habit to get into. Your back needs a rest and your know your things will be safe.

-MYP students shouldn’t be upstairs during lunch unless a teacher has asked you to meet (PPP, Stuco, etc).

Why? There is no one on-duty upstairs to make sure you are safe and sound. Plus, your dedicated teachers need a break!

-Take advantage of the great outdoors, gym, upstairs in the cafeteria, or library foyer during 1st 1/2 of lunch! 

Why? These spaces were designed just for you!

-Backpacks are NOT allowed in the cafeteria during lunch. They go in your locker.

Why? We don’t have enough ice and bandages for all the injuries caused by tripping over 100’s of backpacks!

-We are looking for ideas for a better way to use our lockers. Let your Stuco reps know if you have one!

Why? Your ideas are often better than ours and Stuco exists for a reason!

Thanks and have a great (short) week!
