An update about Immigration Simulation Day:
Friday, March 9th is Immigration Simulation Day. We are going over all of the research and documents that students have been finding and collecting. The students are very excited and have learned so much!!
I highly encourage the students, if they have not done so already, to visit the Scholastic website using the link below. It gives them information to help them prepare for the experience.
The students have a checklist that has served as a guide for preparing. They should have all of the documents completed and will be given their passport tomorrow if they did not get it today.
Also, we are in desperate need of parent volunteers for this event!! It is super easy and fun!! All you have to do is show up at 7:40. We will go over the instructions and hand out any materials you may need. We will finish by 10:00. Please consider helping out to make this experience successful and meaningful! If you are available, please email Mrs. Hellman at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible! Thank you!!
