7th Grade Spanish
Students in Spanish are learning about weather words. This week the class participated in “Writing Around the Room”. Each student started with a different weather statement and a picture at the bottom that led them to a corresponding Spanish statement with a picture at the bottom that led them to a corresponding Spanish statement (and so on). At the end of the exercise, students were able to identify and write 9 weather statements.
8th Grade Bill of Rights
Our 8th grade students are learning about moving from a Confederation to a Constitution in American History. Students were given the opportunity to work together in a group to create their own Bill of Rights for their own country. Students were encouraged to consider the “good of all” when creating their rights. The students presented their Bill of Rights to the class and the class was able to vote on whether or not their rights should be ratified. Some of the rights the students presented were a non-uniform policy, free healthcare, and food/shelter for people whose annual income is less than a certain amount.
7th Grade Math
Our 7th grade math students enjoyed the nice weather earlier this week by going outside and practicing their math skills with lines and angles. Students were able to move their feet to identify types of angles as well as describe their angles to others. It was a great way to reinforce skills before their unit test and a great opportunity to use some of their energy in a positive way!
5th Grade Preview Day
Today, we welcomed our 5th grade students to Middle School. Prior to today, our 6th grade students wrote letters to their 5th grade buddies. After sharing them yesterday, our students were able to spend some time together building community as well as learn more about Middle School culture and expectations. The 5th graders were even able to enjoy break! Our 8th grade Student Council leaders Angelo Khattar (President), Grace Vego (Co-Vice-President), Zoe Meredith (Co-Vice-President), Ryleigh Kate Hampton (Treasurer), and Lauren Pickett (Chaplain) answered questions from the students including “What are some extracurricular activities in middle school?” “How do you keep up with assignments? Is homework hard? How much homework do you have? What are exams like?” and “What’s the hardest thing about middle school? Is it a big change from elementary? How can I be prepared?” We are looking forward to our rising 6th graders moving up to middle school soon!
