Thanks to our class photographer, Rebecca for these great shots!
What's happening in 6th grade:
Chapel leaders - Several students led a game show skit in chapel this week on "Temptations and consequences"where kids used the Lifeline of God's Word to help them make tough choices. Great job actors and worship leaders! Our offering team received a contact back from the pastor at Bethelehem Lutheran who is helping with ministries at Messiah. We have good information to share with our schoolmates on chapel offerings. It was nice to see several parents attend chapel.
Lit- Along with the play this week, we are wrapping up our Nonfiction unit with a look at biographical writings. Our essays and narratives featured Jackie Robinson, Abraham Lincoln, Beverly Cleary and Helen Keller. We will spend a few days learning about disabilites, inspired by our reading after we test.
S.S. - China and population issues - Did you know the world topped 7 billion people this decade?
Science - Mrs. Murray's blog has great photos of the students with their cell projects!
Grandparents Day is coming - Grandparents Day is coming March 11! Please keep those white dismissal forms coming in. Remember its an 11:30 dismissal that day.
Scholastic Book fair is coming! We will not have a book order go in this month in anticipation of the book fair.
***Great job at Jump Rope for Heart - our school high $11,000 was raised!
