Happenings - September 2020

Card Making

2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程This past Wednesday, during our designated assembly time, students spent time making cards to celebrate and recognize local frontline workers and others that have been impacted by the pandemic. Cards made by students went to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Sunrise Summit Nursing Home (where students have volunteered in previous years), and Sandy Springs police and fire departments, to let them know they are on our minds during this difficult time.

Virtual Service Opportunity with Corners Outreach

2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程Brandon Hall students have volunteered with Corners Outreach for over two years now! We are so proud of the work students have accomplished with "The Homework Club" these past two years. We can still volunteer with the children at Corners Outreach, but it will need to be virtual until next year. Volunteer opportunities are available Monday through Thursday with two, one-hour slots available from 3:00pm-4:00pm and 4:00pm-5:00pm. Volunteers will be reading with the children each day during the time slot. Students may sign up for just one session, or as many as they like throughout the week!

Students who volunteer will receive community service credit. Please email Ms. Kristen Bell at kbell@brnisp.com2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程 for details!

SMART Goals

In their advisories, students have been working to set SMART goals for themselves to accomplish during the 2020-2021 school year—goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and T2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程ime-bound. Students used a worksheet to answer a number of questions to come up with a goal they want to achieve:

  • What is an area that you would like to improve on? (i.e. school, athletics, extra-curricular)

  • What specifically2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程 would you like to improve in that area?

  • 2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程How will you measure your progress/success? How often are you going to complete your actions?

  • What are the benefits of achieving this goal?

  • Do you have the tools and resources necessary to complete these actions? If not, what tools and resources would2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程 you need to achieve this goal?

  • 2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程Where will you complete these actions?

  • 2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程When will you start the steps to achieving this goal?

  • When will you complete this goal by and/or how long will you commit to this goal?

Students then determined an action plan for their SMART goal, along with potential obstacles and challenges, and a network of support and accountability.

Art Studio Update

2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程Time is flying by and we are in September! Middle school artists are settled in, and we are finishing up our first project. We looked at early modern art and the work of Eadweard Muybridge and of the Italian Futurists, focusing on movement and motion. Drawing classes created contour and value studies using utilitarian items, such as scissors and pliers, focusing in on 6 detailed close-ups.
