Middle School Visits the Fitchburg Art Museum
On Wednesday, February 26, the students in the middle school spent the morning at the Fitchburg Art Museum learning more about Egypt. Some of the things they learned more about included the Egyptian Gods, the pyramids, and the Nile River Valley. They had the opportunity to sit in a replica of King Tut's throne. The morning culminated in an art activity where they created Egyptian masks. This trip ties into the unit the students are working on at school on Egypt where they spend several days working on an activity in math about the size and volume of the Great Pyramid of Giza and they are creating their own Egyptian God.
Speed Friending in the Middle School
During Social Skills today, the middle school students practiced the skill of making friends by participating in Speed Friending. Spending 3 minutes with a peer, they asked other questions to learn as much as possibly. They were given guiding questions to help them learn more about their classmates. The questions included things like "What are your favorite pizza toppings?, What is your favorite gift anyone has ever given you?, You are stranded on a desert island. What three things would you most want to have with you?" to name a few.
A New Tradition!
Three mornings a week, our community gathers in the Dojo for Morning Meeting.
We start off the meeting with the students leading the Pledge of Allegiance. We then have time for school announcements and finish with affirmations.
Affirmations are a time for any community member to thank or say something nice about another community member!
