Dear MHS 5th Grade Students and Families:
We are hopeful that your child has expressed interest in building her/his/their 21st Century Skills, as competence in a second language and understanding of cultural awareness is pursued.
This is our inaugural year of this award! We have modeled most of the tasks after other schools who have had these awards as well as Cultural Competence Standards. We hope that as students work their way through the different options they enjoy the work and feel accomplished. If you have any questions, please submit them to your teacher or to me!
We shared this timeline when we introduced the awards, but I wanted to send it out as a reminder as we are hoping to get the names of all students who will be participating this year by this coming Friday. We want to ensure that all students who have interest will have the support needed. Additionally, we have heard that there are some students who will pursue the Biliteracy Award. We must make sure that we have judges that are bilingual in the many language students have learned.
Again, we are hoping that you will participate!!
We are a learning family,
