One other thing for camp is that I need to collect all passports from students to take with us to camp. A student cannot go if I do not have their passport with me when we leave on September 18. They are kept locked up here at school and at camp the lodge takes them for the duration of our stay. I will return the passports as we arrive back to ISB.
Students selected cabins for camp on Friday and while not everyone got what they wanted, I was happy that there was some give and take as the students finalized the lists. We do not see this is as too important since we do not spend a lot of time in the cabins except to sleep and we also want the students to get to know other boys and girls from the classes we go to camp with.
We are in the drafting phase of our first piece of narrative writing with most students well on their way to complete their first draft. After this, three people will revise this with them and two will help with the editing. Then it publication time and the process begins all over again with collecting more small moments.
We will produce a camp paper when we return from camp as part of our writing unit.
I have been asked when results of MAP testing will be sent to parents and do not have an exact answer. It is usually 2-3 weeks after the tests end so sometime right after October break would be my guess.
That is all this week. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know so I can work with you in answering them.
