Good afternoon, families, parents, and students,
It has been a short and fast week this past week! Thank you to those that attended Bexley’s Be Well event and viewing of the movie, Angst, on Wednesday evening. What a wonderful turn out! Positive mental health is such a critical and important part of our lives and the lives of our youth. Check out the story from ABC 6:https://abc6onyourside.com/news/local/bexley-be-well-initiative-aims-to-get-parents-and-students-talking-about-mental-health
This week, MT staff and students are diving right into some rich conversations about numbers. Here are some photos from number talks this week and some photos of other happenings within some of our classrooms:
