MS Update: Week of March 18-22

Students are digging deeper into critical thinking skills and are embarking on the concept of INTERDEPENDENCE–our new CYCLE 5 theme.  They will be researching a historical time period, reading primary and secondary sources, enjoying historical fiction novels and creating historical fiction (choice) pieces.  These will all culminate into a final project before Spring Break (beginning April 19).

We continue to help at Baskervill and visit Arbor Landing each Friday as well as learn about the global marketplace through Junior Achievement visits each Thursday. Thank you to Burgeon Legal Group for loaning us computers for updated programs during our new computer elective.

Stay tuned for reports cards coming home next week–the quarter ends on Tues. 3/26; IGP conferences will be held during most of April for 8th grade students–stay tuned for a SignUp Genius link to register whenever convenient to your schedule.
