Thinking, Creating, Reflecting: Impacting the Future


World Explorers’ & Trail Blazers’ Journal! Oct. 25 – Oct. 29

Partner-reading Chris Van Allsburg books looking for the “extraordinary in the ordinary.”

First All-School Share!

Planning in committees for our first All-School Sharing next Wednesday at 8:45am. Trailblazers will host for the month of November! Overheard: “Let’s write our ideas down and then compromise at the end.”

The rain stopped just in time for recess!

The Trailblazers worked on a new print with Jane and Laura on Tuesday!

Sharing our observations and inferences after reading The Mystery of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg!

Stella taught the class about her microscope on Wednesday!

Keiko shared Japanese rice crackers, Hi-Chew candy, and origami pumpkins during her visit on Thursday!

Halloween Concert!

Awesome Halloween concert on Friday. Spectrum’s band is a hard working group!


We learned the word for fireworks in Japanese (hanabi, which means fire flower) to go with this beautiful paper sculpture sent to us from Japan by the Ueda family. Keiko showed us a spectacular fireworks display. The region the Ueda family lives in is famous for this display! Arigato!

Halloween Friday!

Thank you to all of the Trunk or Treat volunteers and all of the donations we received for snacks and crafts for our Halloween party! Trailblazers had a blast with Halloween Mad Libs, a choice of three crafts and a snack. We ended the day with a rousing round of Halloween “Minute to Win It” games! Have a fun and safe weekend!

Enjoy all your candy!
