Last Week of 6th Grade

30 May



We have arrived to our FINAL week of the school year. I want to thank you for your hard work, positive attitude and for making this a special year for us. We will miss you next year, especially those students who are leaving AISC. The following students will be returning to their country or going to another country for school next year: Chanmin, Changik, ChanWoo, Charlotte, Cyril, Jihyeon, Romane, Seohyeon, Yeobin, and Youhei. 

Make sure you exchange new email addresses and stay in touch with your friends. Goodbye is not forever, especially in the age of technology where we can easily keep in touch. Post a comment to wish someone well, tell us your summer vacation plans, and/or to mention something you will miss about social studies. It has been a true pleasure to teach you. Have a great summer!

Mr. Martin and Ms. Jaya

    I will miss a lot of things about Social Studies one of the things I will miss is Out of Eden Learn. I will miss this because I really liked the activities in Out of Eden Learn. I will also miss the people who are leaving, hope you enjoy the place you will miss next!

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:22 pm #

      I am happy to hear you enjoyed OOEL. I think it’s a really cool project and I would say that Paul Salopek is a hero to me. I admire his journey.

    Charlotte, Romane, and Yeobin, we will all miss you!!
    I’m visiting all my home countries this summer; Finland, England, and Greece. I’m really glad because I haven’t been to Finland for a number of years. One night we will hopefully spend a night on the island in the middle of the lake that we are staying by.
    Something I will miss about social studies is all the fun activities we did, as well as the interesting units we have done.
    Everyone, HAGS!

      I am impressed by your summer vacation and planned travels. Have a blast!

  3. Changik May 30, 2016 at 1:36 pm #

    My summer vacation plan is to go to South Korea and rest. Something I will miss about S.S is that I will miss you Mr. Martin!

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:23 pm #

      Thanks, Changik, I will miss you too. Have fun in Korea!

  4. o0Ella0o May 30, 2016 at 1:36 pm #

    I will miss everyone!!
    I wish I got to know the people that are leaving better…
    In the summer holidays I will go to Singapore for 2 days to meet my sister and then maybe we will go to japan for a week. Something I will miss about this social studies class is OOEL. I still want to continue!!

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:24 pm #

      I am glad you have enjoyed it Ella. I know you like Instagram. You should follow Out of Eden Walk, Out of Eden Learn and the photographer John Stanmeyer. That’s a good way to follow his journey.

  5. Taehee May 30, 2016 at 1:40 pm #

    Everybody who is leaving! Be sure you stay healthy and keep in touch with me! Also, students going to Korea, I will see if I can meet you guys this summer. But, I will miss you guys so much!! Good luck ;(

  6. Hanut May 30, 2016 at 2:02 pm #

    Good Luck, Chan Woo!

  7. Gregor May 30, 2016 at 2:05 pm #

    I wish all of the people who are leaving all the best of luck and and a good time wherever you are going! Goodbye and good luck!

    Dear 6th grade SS

    It was a wonderful time and it was a great honour for me to study under the teaching my Mr. Martin. I truly grew a lot, both mentally and academically during 6th grade Social Studies, by learning more, by listening more and by seeing more.

    I’ll always miss 6th grade Social Studies and remember as the “foundational touch” for my historic knowledge. Thank you and Good Luck for everybody.

    From YISB

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:26 pm #

      Your words are very kind, YoungIn. I will miss you and your great questions. You are very inquisitive and take a strong interest in the world around you. Keep doing that!

  9. Nahyun( Hannah) May 30, 2016 at 2:50 pm #

    Everyone who is leaving keep touch with me. Every one that helped me, I am so thankful to you!! Thank you and good bye!! Good Luck~~ I’ll miss you

  10. Lya May 30, 2016 at 2:50 pm #

    Goodbye to all the ones that are leaving. I will all miss you, but maybe I will might you again later. is one e-mail you can use and I think that if you are leaving, it’s best that you use this one because my school e-mail will disappear one day.

    This summer I am going to France to my home town, Les Sables D’Olonne, were my grandparents live. I will go walking somewhere in France for a week with my grandparents, my cousin and my brother. I will also watch the olympic Games on TV, and I look forward to that part of the vacations because I like watching sports competitions. This is all I know I will be doing this summer but I am sure I will do more.

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:27 pm #

      Have a fun summer. I wish I could go to France. I want to get there some day. Enjoy your last few days of 6th grade.

  11. Efflam May 30, 2016 at 2:52 pm #

    I’ll miss everybody who are leaving, I’ll also miss Out of Eden learn. I loved writing all the posts, it was each time super. I will try to go see the most people… Cyril, ChanWoo, SeoHyeon and Yeobin, you did the class better, S.S. will not be the same next year, there will be like a piece of puzzle missing… Good luck!

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:27 pm #

      Efflam, I am happy to hear you enjoyed social studies. You have worked very hard in my class. Have a great summer.

    I wish all my friends that are leaving a goodbye and a good luck. In my summer holidays first I will go to Hydrabad to meet my family for a week and then I will go to my hometown Detroit, MI, USA. I will stay there for two and a half weeks. Something that I will miss about social studies is Mr. Martin because overall he has been a great year. I will miss everyone a lot!

    • Mr. Martin May 31, 2016 at 1:28 pm #

      Thanks for your kind words, Praseedha. I will miss you too. I was lucky to also have you in advisory as well. Keep up the good work next year.

          I’m sorry for the typos, I don’t know what happened…
          Are you happy with the new 6th graders? It’s weird to get the notifications and see the new pictures… I was like some people are missing ….
          All the best

          • Mr. Martin August 7, 2016 at 7:56 pm #

            I don’t see any typos! So far, so good. I have only had two classes. I hope things are going well for you. You can ‘unfollow’ the blog if you want. You are also free to post comments and add ideas. I will be doing some different things this year, although I still plan on doing Out of Eden Learn.
