Character Tree Traits in Action
All our Lower School students showed their Ravenscroft pride last week during spirit week which ended in a wonderful school-wide Pep Rally. The Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students made us extra proud as they attended their first Pep Rally and cheered so loud for all the Middle and Upper School athletes. The fifth grade dance team was definitely the highlight for all us as they filled the Main Arena in the Finely Center with joy and spirit. Their dedication to practicing their routine was well worth it and the entire audience really enjoyed their performance! Go Ravens!
Second grade students Lauren Easters, Ava Karrenbauer, Emma Idler, and Keira Segars all earned character tree stickers for demonstrating collaboration, cooperation, and their ability to Lead with Others. They had all been playing a math game with each other that involved combining several decks of number cards. When it was time to clean up, they had to sort and organize all of the numbers cards back into their original decks. It could have proven to be quite a challenging and time consuming task, but they all devised a brilliant, organized plan to make their sorting efficient and got the job done by working together. Ms. Crawford was so proud of the way they listened to each other’s sorting suggestions and collaborated together on the task! Way to go, girls!
Fourth graders from Mrs. Price’s class engaged in one of their Independent Work Days two weeks ago and I was so impressed with the level of responsibility each one of the students demonstrated as they researched different topics that were of personal interest and importance to them. Students were asking essential questions and learning deeply about topics that included robotics, slavery, volcanoes, and so much more! I am looking forward to the next Independent Work Day that the other foruth grade classes will participate in this coming week.
