Write like an Egyptian
Mrs. Blanchard's 6th grade students in social studies are studying ancient Egypt and their use of clay and papyrus as writing materials. They carved Egyptian proverbs into clay and then wrote them on “papyrus” as well to demonstrate the benefits of using papyrus.

Mrs. Armstrong's Coat of Arms
Mrs. Armstrong’s ninth grade English students created their own personal coat of arms using colors and symbols depicting their unique personalities. The idea behind the project sprung from the classic and creepy short story by Edgar Allan Poe, “The Cask of Amontillado.” Although the tale is dark, their artwork brightens the room!

Oh, the Places You'll Go
Sarah McQuirter, who was Silliman's Valedictorian in 2017, and is currently a student at Tulane University is spending this semester in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she is attending college classes. The 9th grade World Geography classes are following Sarah on this big adventure. They have been fascinated by the fact that all her classes, and all her activities are in Spanish,at how diverse and beautiful the country of Argntina is, and mostly by the fact that since Argentina is in the southern hemisphere it is Spring there. Hopefully when Sarah comes home in December, she will be able to visit the classes and answer all their questions about her great adventure.
