In science this last week, we had a great time working with worms and how they respond to different types of stimulus. Worms do like to maintain homeostasis.
Eighth Grade Social Studies just finished a unit on civil rights. The students gave "I Have a Dream" speeches this week. There were so many fabulous speeches given including topics such as "No More Homework", "School Rivalries Being Resolved", "Rodeo Becoming a School Sport", and "You Cannot Erase History". It was such a pleasure listening to the students talk about things they are passionate about!
Our 4th graders are doing amazing with long division! Please keep practicing multiplication and division facts with your students at home!
I know we are at the middle of the winter, and this often leads to students having trouble getting up in the morning and getting going throughout the day. We want to make sure that students continue to show effort and focus. Part of this will be developed with practice, but there are little things we can do to support this learning. Make sure they get good food for their school day, and try your hardest to have them leave home with a positive note. Say something that builds encouragement and demonstrates a belief in their abilities.
In our class we have been reading fiction and non-fiction books about snow. We have just finished writing a story about our Magical Snowman Friend. We have some great authors in our class! We will end our unit with a snowball fight!
We are enjoying our novel study on Freak The Mighty.
Welcome back, I hope everyone had a great Winter break! It is great to be back! 3rd and 4th sped students are continuing to work on their goals. Please encourage students to study their spelling list and read everyday!
We are learning about animal habitats in Integrated Science right now. Your students are working on a project all about a habitat of their choice. Ask them what animals they have chosen and learn a new fun fact!

In weights we are recording our last set reps with the weight lifted to encourage failure on the last set. Students should be doing more reps weekly or more weight weekly on their core lifts (dead lift, squat, power clean, and bench).
Pima Choirs are working hard to prepare for our April 28th concert!
Shout out to the 6th Graders for finishing their opinion essays this week! They wrote in response to the question, "Should cellphones be allowed in schools?"
We are having a great time working on our individual goals in Special Ed.
We are enjoying learning about the 50 states and their capitals. Students have been writing letters to relatives and friends throughout the United States asking for a postcard and information from that state. We are trying to collect postcards from all 50 states. It's been a fun challenge.
We have been busy learning about the Industrial Revolution in our class! We had a blast turning our country villages into thriving urban areas with factories, tenements, and even a steam engine train!
Tate Smith and Eliza Day are the two top spellers in the 8th grade, and they will compete in the upcoming Pima District Spelling Bee. The alternate is Camden Bryce.
