Important information for parents...

At school we often see how students are often negatively impacted by social media in a wide variety of ways. As much as we wish none of them used it, we know it is the world we are living in today. Many of our counseling conversations and Peace Circles revolve around smart and safe use of social media, it is also very important for parents to be having this conversation at home as well. Here is a good article that will give you info about what kids may have on their devices!

News from the classroom

6th grade update by Lucas Colf - Last week in the 6th grade science class at Bloomfield Central School we worked and tested with minerals. We learned about all of the facts of minerals like their properties and their elements. We learned how all rocks and minerals are different and what makes them unique. The science class had also tested plenty of minerals like biotite and fluorite. We ran tests for hardness, cleavage, luster, and reaction with acid. We identified what the minerals were based on the test results. The whole class learned about how minerals are just the start of rocks. The minerals form into rocks over a long period of time. My partner and I were so fascinated on how we use minerals in everyday life. Did you know that you use some minerals every day? For example, toothpaste. Fluorite is mixed into your toothpaste to help prevent cavities and build enamel. We learned what element combinations are needed to be considered a mineral. I have to say that I think that the minerals unit was my personal favorite so far.


Sci 7 - We are towards the end of the energy unit. This week "Waves."

In Social Studies 7 this week, the students use their chrome books to take a trip on the "Trail of Tears".


In English 7, students demonstrated their understanding of the novel The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle through a variety of project-learning opportunities, including movie trailers, personality collages, inspirational posters, and historical presentations.
