Field Trip Information

Students should be receiving information about 2 upcoming 6th grade field trips this week in Corral class (6th period). We will be visiting both the Perot Museum and Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The Perot trip will be November 18th. We will visit FWMNS on December 9th. Both trips will need chaperones to assist with student groups. If you are interested in chaperoning please fill out the form attached to the paperwork, but also let Jamie Nutt know. We can't wait!

Don't forget students are released at 12:10 on Wednesday. (no lunch served)

New Feature: STEM Spotlight

We are adding a feature to our newsletters each week. This feature will shine a light on our students' great achievements outside of the classroom. Each week, 3 students will be asked to complete a small survey and share a picture of themselves involved in an extracurricular activity. This might be a sport, school activity, church activity, hobby or area of interest. We can't wait to see all of the wonderful gifts our students can share.

Curriculum Connections

Here is what we are working on this week:
