WE ARE SEEKING HOST FAMILIES!
We are seeking host families as we prepare to welcome middle school Italian students to Plymouth in November.
The middle school program is now open to both 7th and 8th grade students. The goal of the program is for students and families to engage in a one-to-one exchange model - to have the same families reciprocate hosting on each side. In Spring 2020, Plymouth students will have the opportunity to study in Milan.

Students Skype with Children's Book Author Tara Lazar
Second graders in Ms. Keegan's classroom participated in a live video conference with the amazing children's book author, Tara Lazar. Students listened as Ms. Lazar enthusiastically read her popular title, The Monstore, which they had explored in Literacy and Information Technology class with Mrs. Boucher.
After the reading, students were able to ask the author many high-level questions about her books and the writing process. They were so excited to hear that she first started writing books when she too was in 2nd grade and that Ms. Lazar and Mrs. Boucher had first connected on Twitter to make this possible!
You may learn more about this fabulous author at TaraLazar.com!

During that half year, students learn about the development of the Spanish language and about countries that speak Spanish. Some of the many vocabulary units include basic greetings, colors, numbers, and weather.
8th-graders take Spanish every day for the entire year. The main objective this year is to get students more comfortable with speaking Spanish. They also start to focus more on the structure and grammar of the language.
Many special events and holidays take place in Spanish speaking countries. Both grades learn about these celebrations and their place in that countries’ culture. This week, 8th-graders made Ofrendas for Día de los Muertos.
Drip, drip, drip. The thrumming of bat wings fills the dark, damp cave as the homo sapiens quietly creep in to fill the walls with pictures. Maybe the images are for teaching others how to hunt or maybe it's a way to express their feelings. Each hominid signs their work with a handprint since written language had not yet been invented. Oh, wait! These are 6th-graders working in a teacher re-created cave! Sloane liked imitating how the hominids recorded their history. Landon and Michael thought the hands-on activity boosted the learning experience - they liked it!
