We have rounded third and are in a full sprint toward home! Baseball analogies aside, the month of May has been more than memorable. Here are some of the highlights:
Portfolio Day never disappoints. After nine years of portfolio presentations, I continue to be blown away by our amazing students and the confidence when speaking Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â publicly about their learning.
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Math and Science at Six Flags
Newton’s Laws came alive at Six Flags as kids experienced speed, acceleration and momentum first hand!
Our trip to Big Bend was incredible. All who participated experienced physical, social, and emotional awareness and growth.
KIDS IN THE CREEK
This month the students enjoyed trips to the creek that included lessons on water quality, creek invertebrates, and creek geology. We even picked up a tadpole and turtle!
EIGHTH GRADE SCIENCE
This month has been all about waves: sound, light, and the electromagnetic spectrum. Pictured here students conduct a consumer lab designed to discover which light bulb is the most economical.
SIXTH GRADE SCIENCE
Earth science students are investigating Earth’s weather and atmosphere while focusing on density and heat transfer (conduction, radiation, and convection).
SIXTH GRADE MATH
We are presently working on our last unit: Area of two and three-dimensional figures. This week we will finish our unit while also devoting time to test review.
*******This week in class we will focus on review for our cumulative exams in both math and science. Remember to encourage your child to study a little each night to prepare for the exams.
