8th Grade Parents: Promotion Video Montage

Last call for baby photos! Last submissions due by Friday, June 2nd.

As the year draws to a close and your scholars move on to the next chapter in their lives, we would like to take a moment to remember your babies the way they were and are at their 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony.

An email from Dropbox, inviting all 8th Grade parents to upload pictures by college, has been sent out. Please take a few moments to upload a few pictures that show your scholar through the brief, yet memorable years spanning from birth to their 8th grade year. We will do our best to get as many of the pictures you upload in the presentation.

Please make sure you upload your scholar's pictures and label with names so there is no confusion with any of the photos.

Congratulations on your scholar's achievements!

The end of the year is almost here, and our students are pushing themselves to endure until they reach the finish line! We are ending the year with a short poetry unit, and the creativity they are showing is astounding!

Last week we read, analyzed, and composed Conceit (extended metaphor) poems and Current Events/Perspectives poems. The students had to do a little research in order to write the latter style; they each selected a current event and wrote from a particular perspective about the event. The topics were diverse, and the students were eager to share their creations.

This week we tried our hands at "Paint Chip Poetry." Every student selected a paint chip and used the names of the shades as inspiration, incorporating poetic elements such as imagery and onomatopoeia. They had to conduct some research for this assignment, too, as many of the places and topics used in the paint chip names were unfamiliar. They then taught their peers about what they'd learned when they shared their poems. Hannah taught her peers that "pinque" is more than a color; it's the Latin word for "imminent." Tyrese found out that Valleys of Glaciers do exist and are exactly what you'd expected...but the science behind how they are created was intriguing.

PLEASE ASK YOUR STUDENTS TO SEE THEIR WORK! I promise -- it's one of the most creative things they've done all year. And they've truly put effort into their compositions!

Thank you, students, for your continued positive attitudes and hard work as the year draws to a close. We completed MAP-R testing this week -- scores will come home as soon as they are available. Please ask your students about their growth this year!

A few notes/things to remember:
*Our final exam will cover poetry and vocabulary from the entire year. *Students will earn a VERY LARGE test grade when they present their vocabulary cards for the entire year NEXT WEEK.
*We are still doing IRT -- 10 points per day!

Character Education/Life Skills
The entire middle school has been empowered with the knowledge of Social Skills, which basically are manners, attributes, interactions, morals, ethics and boundaries. However, this week your scholars shall be empowered with how to become more assertive and resist peer pressure - in short, how to become more assertive - for the lesson is titled "ASSERTIVENESS."

Scholars shall be able to identify the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness, identify quickly, common situations where people often fail to be assertive, how to use verbal assertive skills, and non-verbal assertive skills, identify exactly what persuasive tactics are and how they are used, but not becoming passive, thus, knowing the difference.

An awful lot rides on ones self-esteem, as well as being able to identify what behaving assertively really means, and being able to send "I" message(s).



Sincerely,
Dr. Sullivan-Williams (a.k.a. Dr. BB)

Science Texts
Hi Parents and Students,

Please look around to see if any textbooks for Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or one of the science elective courses were taken home by students. If so, please return them to the school prior to June 9 so that they may be inventoried and packed for use in the new school building next year.

Thanks!
