The eighth-graders have been working hard on one of two final papers. By reading various sample texts, looking closely at stylistic elements, and participating in discussions, students are well on their way to finishing up their literary analysis essays. They had great practice for high school with both detailed textual analysis as well as practice with the writing process.
Students in 4G kicked off their newspaper unit by familiarizing themselves with newspaper terms and completing a scavenger hunt. They will be writing newspaper articles in the next few weeks and publishing the 4G news.
Fifth-graders helped their K5 buddies with a virtues-themed Easter egg hunt. Easter eggs had one of four virtues hidden inside (unity, compassion, service and respect). After working together to find and the sort the eggs, they matched each virtue with examples of actions that demonstrate them.

Our sixth grade science students got to reinforce their understanding of food webs with a two-day, hands-on dissection of owl pellets. Food webs are an important conceptual tool for understanding the feeding relationships among species within a community, revealing species interactions and community structure, and understanding the dynamics of energy transfer in an ecosystem. This activity allowed them to see and identify the different types of organisms in an owl's diet.
