IT’S ISTEP WEEK!! That means I’ll be ratcheting it down a bit this week and next week to provide some relief  to the students.

6th Grade continues its exploration of US History. They are exploring in brief snippets, and will shortly transition to learning briefly about Canada’s history. FDR and the Great Depression is currently the focus, to be followed by WWII. WWII will complete the section of the US’s history.

7th Grade leaves India and China behind this week and start learning about Japan. In conjunction they will also learn how Hinduism, Buddhism, and Shintoism have all played a role in how each Eastern Asia has developed.

8th Grade started the week off by completing their test over the Bill of Rights and other Constitutional related material. Early returns look fantastic on the results!!

Because Primaries are also so prevalent in the news there will some time dedicated to current events in class in each grade. As a class we will identifying candidates, hot topics, and analyzing news stories.

Finally, several 7th and 8th graders competed this past weekend at Roncali in the Quest for Excellence. We had several students place. Here is a link to some pictures of the event. https://www.flickr.com/photos/roncallihighschool/sets/72157662906837434
