Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent teacher conferences were held Thursday Oct. 24th in the East Noble Middle School gym from 5:00-7:00 PM. Thank you to all of the parents that were able to attend! If you could not make conferences or want to meet with the team in more detail, please feel free to e-mail any of your student's teachers to schedule a meeting.
This past Thursday, 7th grade students visited Manchester University. Students got to spend the day talking to students, touring the campus, and learning about college entrance requirements. It's great to get students thinking about college in middle school!
Stomp Out Bullying!
During October, students wore blue on Mondays to remind their classmates to "stomp out bullying" at ENMS. Remember, just saying you're against bullying isn't enough. Actions speak louder than words!

7th Grade Math/Pre-Algebra
We’ve just started solving equations and will be working on these for the next several weeks. Students should be continuing to complete their video notes at night for homework. Mrs. Herbst is seeing way too many students coming to class with these not done. Students and parents can access the videos on YouTube.
7th Grade Science
In science class, we spent a large portion of our first nine weeks really studying the scientific method and the metric system. As October approached, we started our new unit, “Earth’s Structures.” Already we have learned about the formation of minerals and how to identify them. We’ve practiced identifying the three different types of rocks, and we’ve spent a good deal of time studying the rock cycle that occurs around us every day. The comic strips we created about the rock cycle were excellent! We have since moved on to the processes that change the earth’s structures. Once we have finished the first half of this unit, we will the move on to plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes. This will take us into and possibly past the Thanksgiving break. We will continue to be working out of our lab notebooks daily, so if you have not taken the opportunity to glance through your child’s notebook, I highly suggest you do. Many of these notebooks are looking fabulous, and I hope that the rest will continue to get better and better!
8th Grade Science
In science class, we have concluded our unit on the scientific method and the metric system and have moved on to our Weather unit. So far, we have really delved into the different spheres on Earth and how these spheres interact by transferring matter and energy. As this next 9 weeks progresses, we will begin looking at different weather patterns and phenomenon, as well as what causes them. We will continue to be working out of our lab notebooks daily, so if you have not taken the opportunity to glance through your child’s notebook, I highly suggest you do. Many of these notebooks are looking fabulous, and I hope that the rest will continue to get better and better!
7th Grade Social Studies
With the start of second nine weeks, students will begin by studying the different religions of the world. We'll be looking at the historical background and central beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
