Ms. Egan’s Newsletter 10/21

Hello Middle School Families!

We’ve had a great first few weeks with laptops, and we have begun implementing them into all the classes! Very soon, students will be able to take them home.

We finished The Circuit in 5th and 6th grade, and Esperanza Rising in 7th and 8th, and students are all transitioning into autobiographical narrative assignments inspired by the novels. Rough drafts for all classes will be due next week.

We will be taking middle school to the public library to learn about and do research for the science fair within the next 2 weeks. More information will come.

We started the Great Awakening and Enlightenment in our Road to the American Revolution unit for US History, and effective note taking skills for our study of life in ancient Mesopotamia for Ancient Civilizations.

The pumpkin globe project for all grades will be due on October 31st. This should be a fun and creative project!

Looking Ahead: 

The 6th-8th grade Halloween dance is on Friday, October 27th

Have a wonderful weekend!
