‘Twas the week before break and all through the school
The students were studying for final assessments… they didn’t think this was too cool.
The weather has begun to get chilly, and the students are getting little silly
The teachers are hanging on with lots of love and care,
And attempting to be quite fair
Technology is working *kinda*; middle schoolers presented the traditions of kwanzaa
The end of the 2020 school year is coming near
As we only have a few months left after the New Year!
As this poem is meant to add joy and a smile
Knowing that education always goes the extra mile
We are all ready for a nice long break, We hope everyone stays safe for goodness sake
Take this time to sit back and relax, don’t forget to eat all the treats and snacks!
Wishing everyone a happy holiday, cheers to the new year, we finally made it here!

What’s happening in Science and Social Studies:
For social studies, students are exploring daily life in Ancient Egyptian history. This week they wrote a journal entry explaining the day in the life of a pharaoh or queen. They also studied pharaohs and created “trading cards” based on different pharaohs in Ancient Egypt.
What’s up in Math?
Middle Schoolers finished their Module 2 Assessment! Fifth-graders completed their mid-module quiz corrections. Everyone enjoyed coding scenes to represent different kwanzaa symbols using ozobots! Both grades will be ready to start on Module 3 when we get back from break!
Writers continued their fiction writing unit by inserting dialogue into their writing. Writers generated ideas by reviewing mentor texts, such as the Scholarship Jacket by Martha Salinas. Writers worked hard to elaborate their own story in order to engage their reader!
December 21st-January 4th- Winter Break
