7th Grade ELA

In 7th grade English Language Arts, the students are continuing to read The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis. The students are working on a creative character project to encourage them to think abstractly about the development of the characters throughout the novel.

Karl's Birds

Thanks to an eagle-eyed 8th grader, we found out that we have a few new additions to our courtyard. These little babies will forever be known as "Karl's Birds", named after their discoverer.

Diversity Club Celebrates Cinco de Mayo!

The Diversity Club celebrated Cinco De Mayo! Throughout the middle school hall, there were several facts to help educate UAMS on the origins of the celebration.
