Important Dates

Important Dates:

September 5th No School (Labor Day)

ELA (Mr. Gasparovic and Mrs. Wells)

English students ventured further into the realm of the Reader’s Workshop. While learning about the Six Signposts of Reading, students continued to gain literacy skills that will help them become better conversationalists and writers when analyzing literature. In addition, students should be reading 20-30 minutes a day outside of school as they have assignments due on their independent book this month. Happy reading.

Science (Ms. Garwood and Mr. Geringer)

In science students wrapped up our foundations and density unit and took a practical summative assessment where they designed and performed a lab activity to find the density of a set of objects.

Moving forward students will begin their exploration of Chemistry including properties of objects, basics of the atoms, and the periodic table.

Social Studies (Dr. Rachal)

In Social Studies students took their first summative assessment over how we study the past. We are currently learning about map types, map projections, and the 5 themes of geography. Next week we learn about human migration, language and we take the unit 2 pre-assessment.
