This Week


This week students are working on chapters 9 and 10, taking a quiz, and doing quiz corrections.

Language Arts

This week students are finishing the Outsiders, watching Ted Talks about the book and reflecting on them, and taking their final quiz on the Outsiders on Friday.


This week students are reviewing chapter 1 (populations and communities), taking the chapter 1 test, and starting chapter 2 (ecosystems and biomes).

World Geography

This week students are finishing up their assessment paragraph over what geography is and how it is used, then we are moving to unit 2 (US and Canada), learning about the bizarre border between the two countries, taking notes on the history of the US and Canada, learning about the regions, and doing a maps lesson in Discovery Ed.


Students need to bring a charged computer to class every day. This means computers need to be charged every night. Please help students remember to charge them. Thank you.
