7th Grade Socktober

This month, in addition to collecting socks for the homeless and wearing crazy socks to school, 7th graders had a chance to show their creative flair with a contest to make the most creative sock puppet.  Here is one very well dressed example.

This Week in Middle School P.E.

Middle School P.E. students piloted the first ever archery unit and it has been a huge success!  We also used some new equipment that was granted through the PTC and Educational Foundation to help improve our fitness levels.  Keep up the great work Hornets!

Veterans Day Service

We will be honoring veterans this year with a breakfast (5th-8th graders) and assembly (7th-8th grades & any student who invites a veteran) on Thursday, November 11th. Please see your grade-level Schoology page for more information!

Fourth Graders have great heart!

The Fourth Graders have been diving into our new ELA curriculum and learning about having a great heart literally and figuratively!  They have been reading The Circulatory Story and working on main ideas and supporting details.  Earlier this module, students learned about people who had great hearts like Helen Keller, Clara Barton, and Anne Frank.

2nd Grade Math Focus

The 2nd grade students have been working hard on understanding place value. The students can now write numbers in standard, word, expanded, and unit form! Way to go 2nd graders!
