I Believe in Me!

This was the feeling our fourth and fifth grade learners experienced as they took center stage during our Enrichment Cluster Showcase on Thursday, December 20, 2012.  Throughout the day, our learners demonstrated poise and grace as they greeted visitors from our school, our district, and our community.  They confidently shared their learning with our guests, and took great delight in passing that learning on to our younger students.  I was incredibly proud of their efforts and very thankful for the opportunity I had to share in the joy of their learning.  A huge thank you goes out to the cluster facilitators who have worked each week with these young learners to help them discover their passions, explore their interests, and create new learning.

The excitement will continue as we move into January!  Our 2nd and 3rd grade teachers have already begun training as we prepare to bring the cluster experience to our younger learners!  Stay tuned for more details to come!

Our fourth and fifth grade learners are eagerly making final preparations for the Enrichment Cluster Showcase that will take place this coming Thursday, December 20th in the Austin Elementary library.  Kiddos are busy putting  finishing touches on websites, video productions, clay creations, and so much more. They are incredibly proud of their accomplishments, and are looking forward to sharing them with their school and community.
