Meet and Greet














On September 21 there was a potluck brunch in Oliver with parents and students from

YouLearn. For food there were muffins, cookies, fruit, croissants, and cinnamon sticks. Afterwards we played learning games on the grass. In one game we lined up from tallest to smallest without communicating. We also played rooster army tag. It is a game in which when the person who is “it” tags somebody, they chase others with their arm over their head like a rooster comb. We also played a game in which we all sat on benches and 3 people stood up at a time, then 5 then 7. Afterward, there was a Language Arts meeting with a slide show. The slide show outlined three areas in which all learners will be working to grow and improve: reading and viewing, writing and representing and speaking and listening. Approximately seven families attended. The food was tasty, and we enjoyed ourselves.

Keeton's Art
















This is a drawing of the Garbage Dumpster Robot.  This robot has many functions that are controlled by two aliens and one person from pods within the robot.  In this picture the Sonic Boom Robot, which is under the rain cloud,  is going to battle the Garbage Dumpster Robot.  Who do you think will win?

Change
















Change can be a beautiful thing. However, it can also be a number of other things to a number of different people. Having just completed my first week with students at YouLearn, already I can see myself beginning to change. The places we inhabit and the people with whom we live and work impress upon us. Every experience is an opportunity to grow and develop. Over the coming months and years I look forward to this and the ways in which together we will work to improve and reform YouLearn to better serve our learners.
