Presidents Day




Mrs. Armstrong-Montes asked each class to provide three questions about presidents for our Knowledge Bowl on Friday, February 24th at 1:30 PM in the gym for the President's Assembly.

Some students in grades 6, 7, and 8 prepared this presentation with their own researched questions and relevant pictures.  How much do you know about the presidents?

View our slide show to see!

Science and Writing

In January, Sonny Sellars taught our middle school science students about diabetes.  From the notes in science class, students wrote compositions to explain what they learned about diabetes.

You can read and see some of the information here at our student blog, Eagles Write.

Several students (code names used) wrote their own blog posts:

Diabetes!! by Ryal

Diabetes Fight by Kimy

Facts About Diabetes by Quill

Please ask your students what they learn in school -- it may be something you could use too!

NaNoWriMo

 NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month

November, 2011

November was  a busy month for grade eight students as they composed novels to meet word goals to write their own novels. We watched our progress on our class page: Ms.Edwards and the students checked in each week to track their progress and those of our Iowa colleagues in Mr Boylen's and Mrs. Kreb's classes.

We followed the NaNoWriMo lessons and helped each other. I worked on my novel in the evenings and on weekends, and I learned so much about writing, and about writing in the classroom I wrote about it here.

We will continue to revise our novels through March.

Be sure to ask us about the characters and plots of our novels !
