Summer Reading

This summer, we don’t have an assigned summer reading book for students but we are asking all returning students entering the 6th, 7th and 8th grades to read one grade-level appropriate book over the summer.  Their reading teacher will interview each student upon returning to school in the fall about the book that they read.  This will count as one of their first reading grades for the first quarter next year.

April update from Ms. Stary

Welcome back to Room 20!  April has been a great month!  We started the month with a field trip to Camp Chris.  We learned a lot, but we also had a great time!  We were bummed when we couldn’t go to camp for a second day, but our teachers planned camp-like activities for to do at school, and our parents provided us with a great luncheon buffet!

We recently finished writing essays about famous women and people we admire in English class. After spring break is over, we’ll be moving on to writing poetry.  We’ll also be MAP testing again after the break!

We finished Chapter 7 on algebraic expressions.  Miss Stary announced that the 6th grade has another new Math Wizard!  We’re starting Chapter 8; learning about algebraic equations and inequalities in Math class.

The school year is quickly coming to an end, but we’re not giving up yet!  We’re getting set for that final push and finishing up the work that needs to get done before Field Day and our end of the year picnic!

April Update from Mrs. Neider

The 7th grade class has been reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry over the past few weeks. They just finished up projects related to the book and they came out great! They worked very hard and they really showed their amazing creativity. The pictures are of the students and their projects.
