Today, we were having a great time using this interactive map to look at immigration trends in the United States over the last 100+ years.  Take a look!  Think about why folks are immigrating from their country at that time…or why they’re not.  Think about why they may have settled in a particular part of […]

Study Habits & Social Skills


The Study Habits and Social Skills section of our report card can be very abstract for the students.  The language is really such that the habit or skill isn’t necessarily clear or a behavior of which they are aware.  As report cards come out this week, we spent a bit of time on Monday translating […]
