Marking Period Highlights:

In ELA with Ms. McMullen and Mrs. Romanos, the students have been
learning about a variety of literary techniques used by great authors.
To demonstrate their understanding of symbolism, the students created
fabulous family crests to represent their beliefs, hobbies, personality,
and background. Then, to incorporate writing skills, the students wrote
a short paper connecting the symbolism on their crests to their intended
meaning.

In Social Studies we learned about how the Declaration of Independence was sought freedom for our nation, but at the same time denied rights to the majority of the population.

In science we learned about the water cycle, water pollution, and the importance of water to life on Earth.
