8th grade honors begins their argumentative research unit with a bit of fun, speed debating! They had 5 different topics and 4 minutes with each to try and list as many arguments as possible to support their assigned claim on the topic. There was lots of shouting and hand waving in their attempts to prove they were right!

In Mrs. Fisher's social studies classes we took a break from our regular learning activity to try a new idea suggested by our nurse, Mrs. Akers.  It's to bring physical activity into our learning.  Students reviewed both cardinal directions and key locations in Mesopotamia by calling out a location on the map and jumping in the correction direction.  It resulted in a lot of laughs and many students focused in on the map more than they had before when they just labeled a paper map.  And, of course, they learned that North does not equal up!

Students in 8th grade history are studying medieval Europe, preparing to learn about the exploration of the Americas. One aspect of study was battles. Students worked in teams of two to build trebuchets, then enjoyed launching light weight materials at enemy armies composed of plastic soldiers and other assorted characters. My LIttle Pony made a guest appearance as a soldier, as did Flounder, Squidward, and assorted Shopkins, Lego characters, and rather large farm animals. Apparently, no smallish toy was safe from the 8th grade draft!

iPads were distributed to students on Friday. If your student was absent on Friday, their iPad is probably located in the library. If your student did not receive an iPad yet, hang in there! The central office technicians are busy formatting iPads for those students. 

Parents are strongly encouraged to purchase insurance for iPads. It is only $26 for the year and well worth the cost. We had at least a hundred iPads damaged last year. Accidents happen. 
Insurance must be purchased by Sept. 1. Here is the link for purchasing:

Have you ever wondered about all those different brands of macaroni and cheese? Do they all taste the same, or are there differences? Well, if you have a student in Miss Rohrer's Stitch 'N Save class, just ask! Students made 6 different boxes of macaroni and cheese, then did a blind taste test to see which they preferred.  The winner? You'll need to ask your student!

Students in Mrs. Fisher and Mr. Ringler's social studies classes are researching and finding their own historic twin.  Working with Mrs. Eberhardt, Teacher Librarian, students have determined their own dreams and goals, taken a personality quiz to find strengths and weaknesses, and are now reading about different heroes in history to find their match. Our goal is that our students learn that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, abilities and challenges, and everyone is able to pursue dreams and make a difference.
