​Estimadas familias,

Let's Create an Opera-Update

On Monday our students and teachers had the opportunity to work with a professional storyteller, Mera, who will support our school in putting together our ideas and vision into a cohesive story. All classes rotated through mini-lessons in our Learning Commons. Mera led the group through a collaborative story-telling session which she enhanced with drumming and song. Our intention is to write a long-form Acknowledgement of the Land that students will be able to share through storytelling, singing and movement. This is a generative project, which means, we are designing it collaboratively, leaning heavily on student voice, with adult guidance. In the coming weeks, Mera will continue to work with each class and alongside our teachers. Mera is originally from Mexico, so this also provides our students with another opportunity to practice their oral language skills within an authentic experience. 

 I find it so important that our students, even at a young age, understand the amount of preparation that goes into creating a final product. This is authentic, real-life work! We will continue to keep you posted on our progress.
