Main Lesson Bookwork

Posted 1 month ago

Some of our 7th and 8th-grade students, supported by their teacher, Mrs. Gomez, presented highlights of their main lesson book work and spoke about what creating these pages has meant to them throughout the years. In their own words, they explained how it helps them practice skills of time management, planning, and collaborating with their teacher and peers. The students beamed with pride as they showed the pages they had selected, tracked their own progress from the early grades, and reflected on all that they have learned and the grown capable of. For many years, these books will serve as proof of what these students can achieve by striving for beauty, not perfection, when expressing themselves and their knowledge of the world. It’s clear they appreciate that already.
