6th grade will go to the movie PAN, on Thursday---cost is $6 for movie, soda & popcorn. DO NOT let them bring any other money---they cannot spend it. Please email me if your child is unable to attend, so I can prepare an alternate activity for them. They will eat lunch early so they can still have their pizza for lunch.
8th grade is going caroling on Wednesday night. Students can bring a $5 gift for an exchange, if they so desire.
Projects: your students know the Preamble to the Constitution---have them recite it to you. We have finished an inspiring unit on the American Revolution and the Constitution; they know the law of the land and all about their founding fathers and heroes of the American Revolution.
6th reading: Students are completing a triarama depicting a setting from the novel George Washington's Socks
6th writing: Students have been learning to organize their writing using various graphic organizers. They are writing persuasive and argumentative pieces.

They are now demonstrating their skill and teaching the class how to do such things as: dance, braid hair, broad jump, repair a clogged fuel line, develop a sports skill, play drums, prepare foods, and much more!
