Last week we finished spirit week with character day on Thursday and Chinese traditional dress on Friday. Students looked beautiful as they let their creativity shine through their costumes. Along with Spirit Week the Middle school had been taking part in Culture Week. They spent the entire week learning about Israeli and American culture. The Middle school students even put on a play in order to teach the elementary students about American and Israeli culture. The entire week was filled with new fun ways to learn and we are looking forward to using this excitement throughout the entire year.
We are midway through spirit week at TAS where students and staff have come together to celebrate Transformation Academy! On Monday everyone came with crazy hair. On Tuesday students and staff enjoyed the school day wearing pajamas! Today, on Wednesday, we had twin T-Rex’s welcoming students to school! It has been a great week as everyone joins together to proclaim their TAS pride! We are looking forward to capping off the week on Friday with a culture show presented by our Middle School students!
TAS has completed their first few weeks of the new school year. Students were excited to begin the year and have already taken part in a variety of activities. Students took part in the first flag raising of the year, practicing safety procedures, and working on their creativity in art and music class. It has been a great start to the new year and the staff at TAS is very excited to see where the rest of the year takes us as we go higher together.
Students gave their time on Saturday morning to volunteer at the Shanghai Healing Home which is an orphanage that supports almost 30 children. They got to play with the children and help feed them lunch. It was a great experience for all!
