Over 1000 cans collected school-wide for the Stirling Food Bank. Over $250.00 raised for World Vision. Bags of towels, blankets, and pet food accumulated for the Humane Society.  These are some of  the impressive accomplishments from your children this past week. We are so impressed by their ability to empathize with others and take action.  Please take a look at the tweets to the right containing photos of the kids with their projects.  Well done!  More projects are to come in the new year, supporting United Way and Free the Children.

HOMELINK: This week we are starting our "Water Issues" Inquiry presentations.  Students have had an opportunity to search and discover a water issue in our world that is of interest to them.  Some of the issues chosen are "flushing pharmeceuticals", "invasive species", "innovations in the harvesting of water, and "lack of sanitation around the world". They are then "teaching the class" about what they have found using the "5 W's" as well as presenting their perspective/opinion of the issue and proposing a discussion question for the class.  Below I have enclosed a short video clip about   how WATER CHANGES EVERYTHING.  While the purpose of the clip is to persuade the viewer to donate to a charity, the content about the importance of water is excellent.  I encourage you to watch it together and discuss the importance of water.

HOME CONNECTION:  This past week we have heard some very interesting oral presentations about water issues around our globe.  From innovations such as recycling showers and balls that "create" water, to environmental disasters such as oil spills, to growing concern over issues such as flushing of pharmaceuticals, global warming, and lack of basic sanitation on a worldwide scale, we have been educated and entertained!  Well done!  Please speak with your son/daughter about these presentations.

Below is an interesting short video that we saw early this week about how the flushing of pharmaceuticals affects our water supply and our environment.

Here is another clip from one of the cool community service projects that students in 8M are organizing.  Stay tuned for details!

"Things to think about"

We are now finishing our "character" unit, but strong character lives on in 8M!  Please discuss terms such as "empathy", "stereotyping", "human rights", "apartheid" , and "privileges" with your son/daughter. As one of our many  cuminating activities, we watched the movie "Invictus". This is a wonderful film studying the importance of character, an important figure in history (Nelson Mandela), and a very difficult situation (the years following apartheid). We would encourage you to watch it as a family!

 

We have also finished writing a variety of poetry dealing with word choice, voice and perspective.  Ask your son/daughter about his/her "exploding the moment" poetry, and "perspective poetry" where they were asked to take on the role of a character experiencing war.  This character was to express their perspective to a "typical 13 year old living in Stirling in 2013".  Very impressive results indeed!
