6th Graders Share Their Stories

On Wednesday, Mrs. Sevarino's 6th grade students visited the elementary school to share the children's books they wrote. The students enjoyed reading their stories to the younger audience and enjoyed reminiscing about their days in elementary school. Great job 6th grade!

Hard Rock Cafe PBL

Mrs. Atchison's 6th grade students worked on their Hard Rock Cafe Project-Based Learning projects. They put together a proposal to present before a committee as to why a Hard Rock Cafe should be built in the city they were representing. The students presented many interesting facts and worked hard developing the technique of persuasion.

8th Grade Honors Science & Algebra Robotics

The 8th grade honors science and algebra students collaborated to build and program robots that move through an obstacle course. They did a great job!
