Thank you Veterans!

On Tuesday, November 10th, Trexler Middle School honored our veterans by hosting “Bring a Vet to Lunch Day”. From World War II through present day active duty service members, Trexler staff welcomed 60 veterans. School counselors Amanda West and Deanna Ford, decorated the cafeteria red, white, and blue, and welcomed these special guests with banners, signs, and cupcakes. This was the first time the event was sponsored by the school, but the counselors look forward to making the day an annual event. The school felt that it was important to showcase our veterans because so many of the students have family members that have served or are currently serving in the armed forces. Students were able to take a break from the normal school day to eat lunch with their guest.

AVID Update

For the past 2 weeks we have been going over the proper way to do Cornell Notes. We have done Part I-Note Taking and Part II-Note Making. This week are going to do Part III- Note Interacting.

After students have reviewed their notes, asked questions, categorized them and come up with the main idea they need to summarize the notes. In the summary students should state the main idea and then use their notes in the right side of the page to support their summary.

Next, students should use their notes as a learning tool. As students have been going through the Cornell Notes process they have been learning and making a study tool. Now, students can use their notes, questions, summary etc. to review for upcoming assessments.

Athletics

Our wrestlers competed against Brewster Middle School on Monday and had a very close match. Many of our wrestlers won their individual matches, however, because of forfeits we were unable to come away with the win as a team. They also lost to Hunters Creek Middle School in a closely fought match.


Our lady soccer team had a great game against Hunters Creek Middle yesterday. It was a close game, but the Falcons prevailed in score 1-0 in a goal by Kiki Korengay as she pushed her way down the field through a tough defense. The Falcons worked together successfully to prevent the Panthers from scoring on our goal.


The girls soccer game originally scheduled for November 9th against Brewster Middle was postponed due to weather. It will be played at RHS at 4:00 on November 18th.
