Snow shortened our already short week to school... Quarterlies are starting Monday. Hope the snow day gave students an extra day to study!

Ms. Realmutto: 
Students in ELA classes 6-4 and 6-5 are discussing characterization in The Giver in preparation for the Quarterly Exam. 

Ms. Gaskowitz: 
This week 6-6, 6-7 and 6-8 are analyzing The Giver Chapters 14-16 in preparation for their Quarterly Exam. 

Mr. Auguste: 
This week in 7-7 we learned how to find simple interest.
This week we learned how to analyze graph in classes 8-2 and 8-5. 

Ms. Traiman: Class 8-12
ELA -The Pearl- We finished the first draft of essay on how the significance of the pearl changed over time and students are now self and peer editing.

MATH -  7th grade and  8th grade- started reviewing for next week's quarterly. 

Mrs. Maslow:
Students learned how friction is a force that slows down and stops motion. Students also learned how to calculate mechanical advantage. We ended this topic of study by learning how no machine can ever be 100% efficient because it has to overcome friction.

Ms. Zhan: 
The 8th Grade Science classes are covering the topic of evolution with comparisons of theories by Charles Darwin and Jean Baptiste Lamarck.  We will study Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection in depth with various scenarios and relate it with sources of evidence to support the theory.  

Library: Mrs. Keller
We ask students to return their library books in a timely manner. Weekly notices go out to parents and students via PupilPath if their books are overdue. If you have not signed up for an account, please see Ms. Barr our parent coordinator for instructions on how to sign up.
