Last Friday of the 2014-2015, teachings from The Matrix, a last look at the Homework chart, and a photo from the Grade Grad Luncheon at Bairrada

Photo from yesterday's Character Trait Assembly:

WINNERS FROM ROOM 52:

Integrity:  David Akyol
Perseverance:  Jihua/Eva Yang
Honesty:  Diego Jimenez

Over the past couple of days, the Grade 8s have been rehearsing for this Tuesday's graduation.  Here are two shots of us at work:




If I could summarize how some students had great measures of success this year and others did not, I would share this video from the film The Matrix.  This 30 second clip is based on a Buddhist teaching:

 


On a similar note, here is a quotation:

I feel as though I have worked to the best of my ability at showing my students the door.  I have explained how it was built and given them strategies to approach it, with confidence.  In the end, it was up to them to decide if they wanted to open the door and walk through.  If that choice was made, I was there to support and guide them as they walked through.

The last update of the Homework chart before final grades are tabulated

A quote from an unknown source that I have posted on the door into the Room 52
Have a great weekend.
