Science
Topographical maps will be the focus of our week.  

Writing
As we transition into a new unit of writing, students will dig into researching different organizations. They will discover what their purpose is, who they serve, and what they offer the community. They will gather this information in order to eventually discover a need in which we can fill for these organizations.

Grammar
 We have focused one creating creative similes, strong three word sentences, and being good story tellers through our paragraph writing. In the days to come, students will see excellent examples of paragraphs, and be given the opportunity to share more of their work with one another in the hopes to make stronger stories they're telling. 

Spelling
Unit 10 will take place this week with a focus on suffixes. Students will take their CLOZE and Skill test on Thursday. 

Library and Lab Time
Every week students will get the opportunity to spend time in the library and in the computer lab to receive a brand new technology curriculum to help prepare them for 7th grade on Fridays.  

Our Mission:
  1. Cultivating responsible Christian Adults
