Here is the Formal Day advertising at assembly.
Thanks Megan and Freya. You both look fab.
We spoke about the film night that will be happening on Friday 15th.
We thought of some rated G options:
Ms Catasti sent a message about the Playground and wanted to help with ideas about the new sandpit area:
Here are some thoughts we had to improve the new sandpit area:
We also talked briefly about KIVA and how to choose a project. We decided that we will contact the Year 9 Students who have made some decisions about KIVA and see if they could present their ideas to the ESC. In turn we would present this idea to our classroom teachers and see if we could pool our money together. Of course some class teachers have already through about where the money they have collected will go.
Great job at assembly ESC. Everyone went to visit the classrooms so now all the children and teachers know about KIVA and our plans for the 1 yen drive.
Our next step is to provide donation boxes in each classroom… if needed. Many classes already had the donations started.
We will talk again about this at assembly on November 1st. In the elementary school we will collect all the money (unless teachers have other plans) and decide where our money will go. We will ask Mr Clark to visit our meeting soon to talk about KIVA options.
Problems and concerns:- bike seats are getting wet and its too crowded in the bike racks.
Possible Solutions and ideas:-
Could we move the plants? Park under the cover? Get more parking?
We will ask our own classes how many people ride a bike to school. Do they have problems?
We will find out how many elementary students need bike parking and discuss solutions if needed next week.
Also next week we will talk about the Food Fair.
Today we reviewed our blog from last week and made a Script for visits to classrooms.
The grade 3 children will introduce the 2013-14 Student School Council at assembly this Friday. Each G3 Representative will prepare to read some of the script that we worked on together.
Each person will introduce themselves at the assembly and then on Monday next week each rep. will speak to their own class about the 1 Yen drive.
Because the lower elementary classes don’t have reps. we will visit them.
Maya and Erica will visit 2Q
Lukas will visit 2F
Kalab will visit 2C
Takumi will visit 1R
Noa will visit 1S
The grade 4s will visit K classes
Notes by NOA:
On Kiva we will read about Kiva on their website and next week we will talk about it. We will talk to other classes about Kiva and the 1 yen drive to lend to Kiva. We will be on assembly on Friday. We are going to work on a script during next weeks meeting
Elementary School parks there bikes and Middle School and High School students block the Elementary School students bikes.
Some students were feeling lonely.
Student Council students try to make them feel better.
Food fair November 3rd. CARNIVAL!! How to pay? 5th Grade cleaning tables?
Don’t forget that next week…. everyone will look at the KIVA website and we will make a script to tell all the classes about the 1 yen drive.
Following on from a suggestion that came up at a meeting with the Middle School Student Council, The Elementary School Student Council were keen to organize some kind of spirit day. We discussed a few different ideas. We decided than any thing we organized should fit in with these guide-lines:
We had three ideas which fitted these guidelines:
We would like to organize this event because it would be a great experience if the whole of elementary could participate. It is like we are building a community! Don’t forget to wear your pajamas!
Today in our student council meeting, representatives from the High School student Council (HSSC) came to the ESSC meeting to talk about the 1 yen drive and to ask the ESSC for their support. The HSSC has decided that the money collected by this year’s one yen drive will be denoted to World wide charity called charity: water.
Each class has received a container in which to collect their one yen coins. Other coins, more than one yen, can also be collected so long as the coins are Japanese, as some banks will not exchange foreign coins.
Mr Stanworth works with Elementary School, Middle School and High School Student Councils. He mentioned how useful it is when all three student councils work together.
There was profit from the ES dance. The PTSA asked the ES Student Council where they thought the money should go. These are the ideas we came up with.
If you have some thoughts about these suggestions or if you have some other suggestions please leave a comment on this blog.
Mr MacDonald, our Head of School is leaving and we need to find a new head of school. This week, three candidates came to our school to interview for the position of the head of school. The Elementary School, Middle School and High School student councils met together to interview the three candidates. Before meeting with the candidates, the ESSC reps met and came up with the following questions:
Mr Stanworth said that the candidates mentioned how much they had enjoyed meeting with the student council.
