I am looking forward to seeing all of you amazing Bel Air Panthers and all of our awesome staff members again at school soon.  Until then I encourage everyone to stay positive and take advantage of spending time with your families. This is a great time to start a family project, exercise together, research family history, or even enjoy that game of Monopoly that always seems to take too long. 

Since we can't be in school there are many things our students can do at home to  keep  their minds engaged.   I had the Lewandowski kids come up with a few ideas and here is what they said;
Author Night: Everyone in the family writes a story and takes turns sharing.
Family Reading Challenge: Create a  goal for the time we have off of school.  Our goal is to read 10,000 pages by April 14th. 
Family Time Capsule: collect items from around the house, take a few selfies, everyone writes a message to their future self, and  put  it somewhere  safe for a set amount of time. 
Play Restaurant: Kids design a menu with prices .  Parents are the customers. 
Map Making:  Create maps of  your room, house, neighborhood, etc. 

Tune into our Teacher's  web pages, for access to practice  review of our SOLs and content learned.   

Stay  Safe ,
David Lewandowski 







 

What are Global Competencies?

There are ten (10) global competencies which drive the purpose for global learning. We focus on these competencies; the skills, attitudes and knowledge and who to develop these in our students in our global classrooms & school,  and at home.  When teachers apply a global lens to their instructional practices,  they are building global competencies in their students, thereby nurturing global citizens. ​Global citizens actively participate in their world to make it a better place.
