First, I would like to wish a Happy Veterans Days to all our service men and women and their families! We thank you for your service.
Last Thursday we held our annual Sakai Reads event. Like all things this year it ran in a different format than usual, however the connections students made with each other and their books were as deep and meaningful as ever. Our students read a variety of fictional works, all of which had connected themes around compassion and empathy. Discussions on each book centered on the importance of having empathy for others. I was able to lead one group, and heard from many others, and am so proud of our students for their caring insights. I encourage you to ask your child about their book and keep this conversation going. If you would like to browse the list of books chosen for our event, please visit the Sakai Reads Google Site. And, let’s keep reading. This week begins our virtual book fair. See details below.
Last week in the COHO Connection I shared what a basic daily outline will look like for our students in the Hybrid Model. Below is a more detailed look at what daily Monday through Thursday student schedules will look like for both an AM and a PM student.
During the asynchronous learning blocks students will spend a majority of their time engaged in work assigned to them by their teachers. One advantage of our half day in person model is the opportunity for students to get daily feedback on their work and receive new assignments. Aside from daily assigned tasks, students will also have enrichment work and independent reading time. Students may also receive support services during this time, such as Speech or ELL. Please reach out with any questions.
Discover a world of books! Join us in celebrating a love of reading.
A percentage of all sales go to support Sakai library.
Books will ship to Sakai after our eFair is complete. We expect the books to arrive the first week in December. A message will go out to families with pick up information.
This month the following students were honored for outstanding spirit:
Wyatt Dixon Anika Nelson Jordyn Harris Jackson Fitzgerald Anderson Majors
These students received a certificate for a pizza lunch. Thank you to That’s a Some Pizza and Westside Pizza for providing free pizza for our student incentive program. The nominations are made in reference to Sakai’s Four R’s: Responsible, Respectful, Reasonable, Reliable.
