Thinking, Creating, Reflecting: Impacting the Future


Brainstormers’ and Creatovators’ Highlights! Apr. 19 – Apr. 23

Just a heads up…Monday, we discussed and practiced an intruder drill. i explained this as a way to keep us safe inside the building. We locked the door and covered the windows and sat under our tables. We will have an all-school practice next week. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Natural Resources!

Creat-ova-tors are using non-fiction texts to find answers to vocabulary clues while learning about natural resources!

Creat-ova-tors also explored how natural gas is moved along pipelines through a simulation using a baking soda/vinegar chemical reaction. They also had to use Math to scale the original ingredients to fit smaller jars.

Reading Middle School's newspaper, The Spectrum PerSpective!

Declan and Lilah shared their musical video game progress with Miss Sue!

Makenna shared her Writing Workshop short story, “The New Pony” with the class Wednesday!

The Brainstormers started out the morning with some kitchen scrap gardening on this beautiful Earth Day!

A recess "Earth Day Cake!"

Creat-ova-tors’ trash for one day, and making art from the sanitized pieces...happy Earth Day!

Video Game Creations!

On Tuesday, Nathan and Kaylee showed our class their whale-themed video game creations, accompanied with music they created for each scene!

New class pics, an Earth Day hike, and Virginia Bluebells!

Poetry Slam!

The Brainstormers had a Poetry Slam on Friday! Everyone had a chance to share their pocket poems and black out poetry that they have been working on this month!
