KWON students in grades 5-8 are participating in the Bully Project this quarter. They will finish watching the award winning documentary during Hales tomorrow. The film focuses on the negative effects of bullying and the choices we can make to change that! If you have any questions regarding the movie you may visit www.thebullyproject.com or contact your child's Kumu.
For the first session of KWON's after school literacy program (offered through the PALS program), students read the non-fiction title Jacques Cousteau by Dan Yaccarino. After the group read-aloud, students were able to journal or draw a picture related to the topics available. The students enjoyed reading together and drawing/writing about their thoughts. Great job PALS' kiddos!
The KWON Library Club made up of students from grades 5-8 met today to discuss their favorite books and what they would like to get out of their time together. They will be reading The Boxcar Children this quarter! The eventual goal of the Club is to oversee the school yearbook, newspaper, and all library events. This will happen through our new PALS after school program. If you need more information about the many clubs being offered after school through PALS (including the Library Club), contact Chablis Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's go Library Club!
