We are continuing our consideration of the testimony on integrity this month. Our Eighth Grade students have written new queries on integrity. I hope you will talk about them with your children and see how you and your family answer them.
- How can I hold myself and others accountable for being our authentic selves?
- What does integrity look like in the midst of change?
- How do I practice integrity in the digital world?
As a part of our year-long theme of seeking a society with equity and justice for all, students in grades 5-8 had a special speaker on Tuesday. Bobby Trice from Friends Committee on National Legislation spoke via ZOOM on the work of FCNL and what it means to exercise our civic right (and responsibility) to petition our government. He shared his own story of how he came to his current work. He related instances of young people, like WFS students meeting with their elected representatives to share concerns and in a few cases influence the outcome of an issue. Like Vedra Chandler’s presentation, Bobby Trice's presentation gives our students another window into a way to live a life with integrity.Third Grade students are beginning to explore what you can do with a 3D printer. Teacher Josh gave them a demonstration today and will be teaching them how to design and print their own widget.
