Your child should have brought back a sheet about the upcoming Identity Day. It is a project all about something that your child really likes, enjoys or loves. The format is wide open. Poster boards, costumes, movie clips, sculptures … basically they can present/display just about anything! This project is to be completed at home and will be displayed in school on Friday, November 22. Please encourage your child to pick a topic for their project.
Please remind/encourage your child to see me at lunch or after school if they need extra help or more time with any assignment or project.
