I hope everyone has had a chance to catch their breath after the crazy week we had. I want to thank everyone that helped out on the SELS summit day, the bay area sailing trip, or the bear walk (or in some cases, all three). I’m sure by this point you have heard many stories about the events from your kids. The chaperones on the bay area fieldwork (Kelli, Rob, Sarah, Kim, Kimmie, and Scott) did a wonderful job battling traffic and helping out in general. I have posted the pictures of last weeks events on the crew website and on my picasa account (This link). I want to especially thank Ashley for helping organize the fieldwork. There were unforeseen challenges that arose about two weeks before the fieldwork that almost canceled the trip, but with Ashley’s help we were able to find other arrangements that made the fieldwork even better.

Thanks to everyone that came to the goal-setting conferences. My hope is that your child will post these goals somewhere they will often see them, as a reminder of their main focus in school. In the spring we will meet again to review their progress on the goals and revise them.
Your child will be bringing home a mid-semester progress report today. Here is a description of the grades:
