Our Model UN Night was a SUCCESS!

Standard

Thanks so much to all of the parents who came out last night to see our Middle School delegates showcase their knowledge. They did such an amazing job of researching and understanding real world problems, while coming up with practical solutions to help make the world a better place! Chris and I know that they couldn’t not have done it without the encouragement of their parents!

The students looked snazzy and professional and I know they were extremely proud of what they had accomplished! We are looking forward to having the ability to make it to William and Mary next year! Here are a few photos from last night of our spiffy delegates!

A few reminders:

Please remember to bring in a game to donate to our Middle School Game Night Basket for the PTO Spring Auction! All contributions are greatly appreciated!

We will be heading to UAB next Tuesday to learn about the connection between DNA and Forensics from Dr. Jason Linville! If your student has not returned their permission form for this trip, please make sure they bring it in on Monday at the latest! Your student will also need to bring a sack lunch!

New Year! New Outlook!

Standard

Hey everyone! We have had a fabulous start to the new year! Students are already busy working on new writing skills, studying Ancient Greece, analyzing genetics, and continuing on within their math. The break was much needed and everyone came back rested and prepared to buckle down and get to work!

We are preparing for our February trip to the College of William and Mary for their Middle School Model UN Conference. We received our committees and we are excited to be researching Disarmament and Security, Social and Humanitarian Issues, World Health, and Peace Building! We also were excited to find out about our placement on 3 specialized committees that will give us look into past UN crises and resolutions. Thanks again for getting deposits in on time! We are on our way to a very smooth trip!

This past Tuesday we visited the Exceptional Foundation for the 5th time this school year! The foundation was excited to hear that our Headmaster Dr. Jeff and his wife were going to come and play music! Many of our friends at the foundation enjoyed the music with dancing and singing along. It was a great time!

Following our visit with the Exceptional Foundation we went to Nabeel’s for lunch! It was great for the student to experience authentic food from the Mediterranean region we are studying in History! From feta cheese, to lamb chops, the students came home with full belly’s and and a great experience! It was a lot of fun, and we were all glad we went!
