With Spring escorted in with 12 inches of snow, we sure had a busy week here in Marine Park. Our annual musical took place with the cast and crew of Hairspray doing an outstanding job... Thank you to Ms. Turoff, Ms. Wilkinson, and Ms. Pohl and all of the others who made this a success!

Ms. Traiman: Class 8-12
In ELA students finished Chapter 21 in To Kill a Mockingbird. This chapter had the verdict of the trial.
In math my 7th graders solved 2 step equations (Mod. 6.4).
In math  my 8th graders- solved equations with no or many solutions (Mod. 7.4) 

Ms. Realmutto:
Classes 6-4 and 6-5 are working on completing the first draft of their Argumentative Essays.

Ms. Kieran: 
My classes are finishing their discussion of the Tom Robinson trail. 

Mr. Gamsey: 
6th Grade Science
With Wednesday’s snow storm, it brought learning about the weather to life for our 6th grade scientists.  The students tracked the storm in the days before to see where it was moving towards.  The students themselves began to make predictions as to when the storm was going to hit. 

Marine Park Robotics
The Marine Park Robotics teams are hard at work building their SeaPerch underwater robots.  These remotely-operated vehicles will be used to compete in the U.S. Navy's SeaPerch tournament in April.  The students are building their own frames, motors and control boxes. 

Ms. Keller: 
6th Grade students continue to visit the library to learn about the Japanese Internment and the World War II era. 
The snow certainly threw the schedule off, but hopefully, all the classes will have an opportunity to visit before spring break. 

Ms. Duro: 
Classes 604, 605,  and 606 are doing Lesson 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3 this week. 

Ms. Casey: 
Mrs. Casey's classes are continuing their critical lens essays based on To Kill a Mockingbird

Ms. Cucos: 
Class 7-17 reviewed the ELA and Math practice tests taken over the past couple of weeks. We wrote short responses and discussed how to choose the best evidence for our answers. 

Ms. Hanley: 
Students in 6-11, 6-14, 6-15 finished their unit on Japanese internment by writing and argumentative essay determining the constitutionality of Executive Order 9066. 

Ms. Zhan: 
This week, the 8th grade science students will be learning about lunar and solar eclipses and tides.   

Ms. Maslow: 
Students began to learn about the relationship of the earth’s rotation and revolution around the sun as we prepare to start the unit of weather. We tied in some information from earlier social studies units by looking at Stonehenge, El Castillo, and the need for a calendar for planting crops.
