  • English w/ Mrs. McFadden ~ This week we continued to read Percy Jackson while Ms. G. worked on Wanted Posters for Greek “heroes”. Their posters were very creative! We also completed our fall Aimsweb testing for both reading and math. This screener allows us to track student progress throughout the year and plan accordingly. We will have our first vocabulary/spelling quiz on Wednesday.
  • Foundations of Pre-Algebra w/ Mrs. Murray-we spent the week writing and evaluating algebraic expressions.   We completed our Aimsweb testing. We have a quiz next Tuesday on Chapter 1.  
  • Music w/Mrs. Chelsey – We reviewed our “quarter beat” notations and 7th grade helped introduce the 6th grade to the rhythm game “Pass the beat around the room”. Ask your kids to play it with you!!;)
  • Science w/ Mrs. Farris – In 6th grade, we began to expand on the 5 steps of the scientific method. Using paper airplanes, students were introduced to science variables, controls, and experimental groups. Students then practiced their new vocabulary words by identifying each variable in a germination experiment.
