The days are winding down in the school year, but we are full steam ahead in the classroom! The 8th grade is currently working on interpreting short stories and discussing how to be "agents of change".  Great conversations are had as students discuss the social injustices in our community and how they themselves can help make a difference!  In math, students are reviewing Systems of Equations and Statistics. 

In 7th grade students are reviewing their final unit of Statistics and reading graphs to interpret outliers, range. mean, and figuring out the probability of certain events to occur!   In ELA, students are finishing up their novel "Dead End in Norvelt" and creating themantic statements as they learn the lessons the author is trying to teach the reader.
