PATH FIELD TRIP TO TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY

The 8th grade Path classes took a trip to Texas A&M last Thursday with the help of Mrs. Roundtree, Mrs. Key , Mrs. Jasper, Mr. Alfred and Coach Harshaw.

We visited Texas A&M as part of our extensive search for colleges for our students. We have sent dozens of letters of inquiry to other colleges and universities within the last couple of months and have received wonderful responses from the colleges and Universities . The students are very excited!

The 8th graders get to see a glimpse of what the college life is all about as we embark on this journey with 75 8th grade students.

Quizizz - The New Kahoot

Are your students all Kahooted out? If so, try Quizizz! Quizizz is similar to Kahoot in that you create a series of questions for students to answer on their own devices, the differences being that students can answer questions at their own pace and they don't have to necessarily complete the question first to stay ahead. The website for Quizizz is www.quizizz.com. Please contact Jo Cadena for more information or to see Quizizz in action.
