Hello Dear THESIS Families,
I hope you are all outside today enjoying the sunshine! My garden tomatoes are, I am sure!
Not to take away from that summer feeling, but if you would take a minute to read this message and think ahead to serving at THESIS this year, we can together get our co-op year off to a smooth start!
Art : THANK YOU to those who are responding to the call for art teachers! Having taught art a few times, I can attest to the satisfaction and fulfillment the children and the teacher experience through art participation. We are still in need of an art teacher for the Kindergarten class.
Gym: Gym teacher slots exist for Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. Want to volunteer, but never taught gym before? Miranda Shields (3rd grade gym) has offered to co-teach with you, or just help you get started with ideas and equipment.
General Electives: Openings exist for Second Grade and Third Grade. Need an idea? What about games from other cultures? Critical thinking and problem solving? THESIS already owns music stands, math balances, and Song School Latin curriculum if you are interested in using those material for a class. Or suggest your own class idea!
Events: In order to continue with traditions such as Historical Thanksgiving Feast, Talent Show, World Culture Fair, Science Fair, and Field Day, coordinator parents will be needed to head up the planning and execution of these events this year. If a family or pair of families want to team up on any of these, get in touch!
Can't wait to hear from you! It is going to be a good year!
THESIS registration is planned for Tuesday, August 18 at 12-2 for returning families, and 2 pm for new families.
Liz & Heather, for THESIS
