Dear UMAC Parents,

We are so proud of how well our learners have kicked off the year 2016! With our goals and expectations set, we are confident in our student’s abilities! Our eagerness to learn has been apparent as we jumped back into our learning this week. With the fresh, new start, we are confident that we are going to continue to make this the best year yet!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Social Studies/Writing

Thank you for supporting our team as we prepared for our History Alive! test today. From this chapter, we gained a deeper understanding of the formation of the colonies. The discussions and questioning throughout this chapter has been outstanding and provided us the background knowledge as we tackled a culminating writing activity.

As a colonist leaving England, each student wrote a farewell letter on Google classroom to explain why they were leaving England and how they had chosen this colony to become a new place to live. By generating compelling reasons proving this important decision, they used the opportunity to show their knowledge from this chapter well. These fine letters will be displayed in the hallway for our school to see!
