  • Chinese Classes Participate in Restaurant Project

    After a semester of learning, Ms. Liao’s Chinese Semester Classes applied their knowledge through a Chinese restaurant Project. In this project, students composed and performed a skit about a restaurant experience entirely in Chinese. The experience was an interactive and creative way for students to engage in practical Chinese application while having fun with their peers. “The project gave us the chance to understand how it would be to speak, greet, and have a full conversation with someone at a restaurant, or even just in general,” said Aubrey Sinople, a 7th grader when asked about the experience. Ms. Liao’s students enjoyed the immersive experience as a fun way to wrap up the semester.

  • "Flash Debates" in Seventh Grade ELA Classes

    Students in Ms. Kiser's, Ms. Secker's, Ms. Marshall's, and Ms. Sinople's seventh grade English Language Arts Classes are working on a "Teen Research Project, which on Monday, February 3rd, included students participating in "Flash Debates." Students have independently chosen topics such as immigration, water pollution, animal rights, global warming, genetic modification of foods, social media anxiety, and others. Students were presented with topics and read articles, listened to TED talks, and viewed informational videos as a way to get a little "taste" of each topic. Students then narrowed their interests and chose their own topic for independent research.
