At the end of the semester, your child will share his/her e-portfolio with you, highlighting different learning experiences as they reflect our Learner Profile.

This week, we began working on an All About Me page that will describe your child as he/she is now in Kindergarten. We first read a book called

and talked briefly about how we are all different and special individuals. Then teachers asked the children to think about two "I am ___" statements, two things about themselves at school, and two other things they wanted to share about themselves (anything at all!).

The children drew their ideas and teachers wrote their statements. Here are a few examples of the All About Me pages that will introduce each child's respective portfolio.

In the coming weeks, teachers (classroom and specialists) will be capturing and inputting learning moments specific to each child that reflect the Learner Profile. We look forward to having your child share his/her portfolio with you next month.
