Language Arts

Hello everybody! We are studying The Diary of Anne Frank during 4th quarter. This week coming up, we are going to learn about genocide and the life of Anne Frank, using web resources to understand the author and the historical background. In weeks coming up, we will be reading selections from her diary and responding to it through writing and discussion. I miss seeing your faces and I look forward to your thoughts.

U.S. History

Team 10 parents,

As we hurdle towards the ends of the school year, students in U.S. History will be preparing for and completing their final project. This final project had 2 options for students, they can either choose to complete a ceiling tile or a wax museum on a famous U.S. historical person (more information on Schoology). This will be an 80% assignment worth 25 points.

After this week, students will have the option to complete some lessons over Kansas history and will have the final week of school to do any catch-up work.


For the first week of online learning, we will review squares, square roots, cubes, and cube roots. All learning for this class will be done on Schoology and i-Ready this week. If you have not had a chance to view the Introduction video on the math class Schoology page, I encourage you to do so. It explains the new format and offers guidance and answers about what to expect for the remainder of the school year.

This week's online lessons:

Monday--Perfect squares and square roots

Tuesday--Estimating irrational square roots

Wednesday--Square roots and cube roots i-Ready lesson

Thursday--Solving equations with exponents
