The Guardian Core will be hosting its annual Urban Day/Math on the Mall trip to Downtown Denver's 16th Street Mall on Thursday, April 28th. Students will be getting much more information when we get back from spring break.
Today, I have sent home with your student, a green fieldtrip permission slip, to be returned by FRIDAY APRIL 15th. The cost is $8.
I have attached a copy of fieldtrip form to this email.
On the day of trip, students may elect to bring their own lunch, purchase lunch downtown, or order a cafeteria sack lunch. I will be taking orders after break for cafeteria sack lunches.
We will need MANY chaperones. If you would like to join us, please contact me at Susan.Greenberg@adams12.org. Parents who haven't filled out a district volunteer packet, will need to do so before the trip and I can get you that paperwork. Once we are dropped off at the capitol building, we will be on foot most of the day. Chaperones are encouraged to ride the bus, and we have ordered extra space for this trip. Any that decide to drive and meet us down there, will need to consider the parking situation/cost, and may not drive any students to or from the trip. All students must ride the bus. Chaperones must be parents or guardians (no older siblings).
I will be putting all of the fieldtrip forms, letters, packets, and information on my webpage. http://century.adams12.org/classrooms/269/math-mall-fieldtrip-0 (It will be under construction through spring break)
If you have any questions, let me know! (send separate email...don't reply to this one)
Have a great weekend!
Our current 7th grade thought is " working on independence"
As we bridge the paths between elementary and high school years, we are given a unique grade level. In 6th grade, students are just learning how to navigate the waters - lockers, schedules, supplies, organization, more than one teacher, hallway passing periods.... In 7th, they are navigators...now we teach them to use what they know, seek and find, and what is your solution? In 8th grade, they are focused on maturing into students who are ready to hit those high school hallways, and ultimately ready to tackle obstacles, instead of remaining stuck in excuse, blame, indecision, or defeat.
This fieldtrip is one of several experiences that focuses on student led experience and accountability. It allows the student to plan, execute, fail, replan, execute, and try again, then report out - successes and fails alike. Instead of being handed the answer, we are learning to explore, expand our curiosity, look for new solutions, and try new paths.
Below are various student or parent found items about independence.....enjoy!
