The seventh grade put themselves into the 1960s to better understand the characters’ lives in The Outsiders. We analyzed magazine covers, advertisements, and newspaper photos while jammin’ to The Beatles. We are ready to learn how setting affects the characters and their actions.
This week’s dance class put an emphasis on proper etiquette. The 6th and 7th graders not only learned the Waltz, but also how to properly greet and thank one another. Following class, they reflected in their journals on the importance of proper etiquette in our society and around the world. Ms. Scheiber’s dance moves are worth noting; it is a shame she cannot participate in the final dance-off.
The 6th and 7th graders prepared for their cumulative vocabulary tests by competing in a game of Grudgeball. The victorious teams showed off their study skills with impeccable recollection of definitions.
The 8th graders participated in their first music composition class. They interacted with iPads and Garage Band to learn how to compose their own song using sounds found in the world around them. We look forward to their final masterpieces!
The sixth graders showed their lacrosse skills in gym class this week. They learned each position and the correct way to face-off.
On Friday, Ms. Denten's eighth grade students made sparkly snowmen with Ms. Jensen's second grade students. After cleaning up as much glitter as possible, they read stories together before saying goodbye for the weekend.
