- VIDEO OF THE WEEK: What will your name leave behind?
Our fingers remain crossed that some positive news will come from this latest round of negotiations.
I think I speak on behalf of our whole staff when I say, it is heartbreaking to be away from the school and away from doing the work that we are all passionate about.
When we return to school, you can expect a whirlwind of activity and information, but that will be a good thing! As soon as we have information regarding the first day of school, we will make it available to you immediately. We will do this here, on our school website, and on our Twitter feed.
In the meantime, please stay tuned and continue to get your child(ren) back into important routines: early to bed – early to rise, helping with family chores, reading and writing daily, and of course getting a daily dose of fresh air and exercise.
Mr. Vendramin & Ms. Vogstad

CAMBRIDGE CARDBOARD CHALLENGE
A few years ago, a young boy from East Los Angeles, named Caine, inspired the world by building a complete arcade using imagination and cardboard. An organization called the Imagination Foundation “was founded to find, foster and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in children around the world to raise a new generation of innovators and problem solvers who have the tools they need to build the world they imagine.” The result? The Cambridge Cardboard Challenge. Our event will take place on October 6th and will be open to all students. Students need to complete the Cardboard Challenge Application to indicate their interest in participating.
Please watch and discuss the following videos and then decide, “How will YOU show your creativity?”
A dot is never really just a dot…
Stay sharp until school starts.
Your challenge is to change your dot into something other than just a dot.
Parents, please post your children’s creative work on Twitter or Instagram using the #CambridgeLearns hashtag. Or, take a photo and email it to email@example.com and we will post it for you.
Happy Dot Day!
