Special Announcements for 5/9/16-5/13/16

Here's what is happening!

This upcoming week is a special week for us! We are going to be busy practicing and participating in our Young Champions Event being held on Friday, May 13 at Hare Chevrolet Field from 10:00-2:00. We are also extremely excited that select students (including two of our own 8th Grade Student Assistants, Sydney and Kya) have been chosen to report back to students and teachers; via Social Media and other technology resources about the 2016 8th Grade Washington, D.C. Trip. We are looking forward to our own "Virtual Field Trip" of D.C.

2016 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip

The Twitter Account, @NWMS_FAP has been created in order for all students at NWMS to virtually be apart of the Washington D. C. Trip. With the help of Mr. Kite and our 8th grade Student Assistants, Kya & Sydney, pictures and videos from all 8 bus groups will be sent on a regular basis and shown in our classroom. This will allow our FAP students to interact with those students in D.C. and enjoy and learn about the content in which they are involved. Kya, Sydney and other 8th grade students will create "DC Reports" from specific landmarks and museums throughout the trip. These reports will be "Live" from The Smithsonian, The U.S. History Museum and other important landmarks. Students will also create "Remote" reports from Ford's Theater and other historic sites throughout DC.

We are excited to virtually be apart of this wonderful trip!!!

What we're learning

We are finishing the year strong by fine turning our money skills, sharpening our math skills from addition and subtraction to multiplication skills, always working on our calendar work, and survival words in Spelling City, and finishing up our latest book, Holes.

Our latest "drill" includes memorizing and writing our full names, addresses, and phone numbers through the end of the school year.
