Friday Assembly on 9/7/18 was so fun! Following a tradition of starting the new school year with a story, Ms. Woo selected a wonderful book called Three Questions. This was Dr. Peters’ birthday book one year!
The story is about a boy named Nikolai (played by Mr. Prellberg) who wants to be a good person but was not always sure about the best way to act. He asked his friends, Sonya, the heron (read by Mrs. Wong); Gogol, the monkey (read by Mrs. Rosen); and Pushkin, the Dog (played by Mr. Gillespie) 3 questions: What is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? and What is the right thing to do? Their answers did not seem right to him.
Nikokai’s experiences with Leo, the Turtle (read by Ms. Woo) and Panda (read by Ms. Gabby) helped him discover the answers! Read the book to discover what they are! And Mrs. Galdeira was such a great narrator throughout the story.
This Assembly had a Part II! Everyone is excited about Centennial Friday that will occur on 9/21/18 following the Assembly on the Cooke Family. Students got to hear “promos” from teachers who will be leading the fun sessions in the morning and in the afternoon. The teachers enjoyed creatively presenting their short promos. The students eagerly watched them thinking about their top 3 choices. Out of the 3 sessions, 2 will be selected for each student.
The workshop sessions are diverse and it will be so difficult deciding between choices such as Cooking Fun, Book Skits, Bugs, Rock-n-Chalk, Old-Fashioned Games, EZ Lei-Making, Sign Making/Giving Back, Paint by Numbers, Stomp it up, Forts, and Yarn Bomb, just to name a few!
