Surfrider Foundation and Community Outreach
Posted on March 26, 2019
The  Scholars/Team Members of Team Notre Dame had some amazing questions for our guest speaker, Mr. Roger Kube! Roger has been the president of Surfrider Foundation SD. He developed a program called the Tijuana River Clean Up, and has helped to get 5 ordinances passed through the city of San Diego. He helped implement the plastic bag ban for 5 different cities in SD County, and even got the final vote written on the ballot! He was able to speak to the kids about Surfrider Foundation's mission. He also taught them the steps it takes to create policies! He was such a huge inspiration to our amazing students! Plus, this was a great addition to our current PBL unit! 


Book Projects
Posted on March 3, 2019
In honor of Read Across America, our Team created their own book projects and shared their love of reading with the class. They rated their books overall from 1-10, encouraging others to go out and read the book! Team Notre Dame has a new list of MUST reads! We heard from all different genres! There was a lot of fantasy/fiction, a few realistic fiction, and some historical non-fiction memoirs. We heard stories of survival from the Holocaust, and an escape from China, as well as heroes, villains, animals and much more! It was a true joy to see them be SO excited about their reading. Way to go Notre Dame!
 
Gavin's Red Pyramid book was a hit! His actual pyramid prop was edible, made of rice krispy treats!!!
Brynn broke down the Tiers of Society on her box project! She encouraged every student to go out and read her book that she rated a definite 10!

Quincy's memoir read was a fascinating tale of perseverance. We were all intrigued by The Girl With Seven Names. The journey is one that can give us all perspective on life. Quincy encouraged many to read this next with his high rating!
Group discussions were had, questions were asked, and a lot of brain picking. It was so much fun to deep dive into their books/genres of choice! So proud of them for continuing to read, read, read, until they found the genre they love!
