Social Studies- Ms. Kate Heintzelman

This week we spent time working on thesis statements for History Day. We also explored the four different project types: Documentary, Exhibit, Performance, and Website. If the students have not finished their thesis it is due the Monday after Thanksgiving. All grades will start new maps on Monday.

Spanish - Ms. Hanna Brown

8th, 7th and 6th grade students got to enjoy skyping Señorita Brown's friend, Ben, who is studying abroad in Chile. Students learned new words in Spanish, and learned a lot about the Chilean culture. They were able to communicate with Ben using Spanish words they know. Students asked questions and learned a lot! It was really neat. Ask your kiddos what they learned about the Chilean culture and what new words they learned as well.

Music - Mrs. Alisa Rogers

Religion - Mrs. Katy Kieffer

Physical Education - Mr. Thomas Gorilla
