Week in Review: We All Had a Passport Lunch

 

It was a week of weeklong projects. All week long the sophomores presented their Sophomore Projects to their peers and teachers. The Top Ten presenters will participate in the Sophomore Symposium in April where they’ll present to a panel of judges including teachers and former winners. Also all week the Glass Knife staff have been having their board meetings to discuss what pieces should go in this year’s book that will be produced in April and May and distributed in June. The seventh graders checked in on their March Madness book brackets each day this week. As the books progressed through the brackets, the students whose books moved forward each day received a piece of candy. In the end it came down to Ava’s review of Berlin Boxing Club and Natalie’s review of Broken Memory. Both were strong, but on Thursday we found out Natalie won the bragging rights.

On Monday Ms. Eustace’s 8th grade English class came in the library to research World War II technology in preparation for their upcoming papers and speeches on the same subjects. On Wednesday Ms. Eustace was back, this time with her 6th grade English classes. The 6th graders are beginning their Passion Projects and came to the library to brainstorm possible ideas.

Friday was the High School Passport Lunch where students buy a passport (with proceeds going to our sister schools in Rulindo) to visit different classrooms and sample a variety of dishes from around the world. In the library, Ms. Melinson’s advisory had noodle dishes and drinks from around the world.
