8th Grade – M McKenney

June Newsletter

June is here, and it is crazy to believe how fast the time has flown by!  Students are getting excited for end of the year activities! There are a lot of them in June, so I will keep everyone in the loop for when they are happening, please see the listing below

Also, a special shout out to all 7th grade students who took their NWEA and M Step tests in the month of May! They did a great job despite the rigorous work the standardized tests pose!

We have finished up all of our math learning objectives and are reviewing concepts that will prove to be helpful as students move up into higher grades.  Some include geometry review, as well as probability.

In Social Studies, We will continue watching the daily news and having discussions surrounding important topics in the world around us.

In Science, we will be doing a review of weather and the water cycle, as we have some special guests coming to present on these topics in a fun and interactive way on Monday, June 11th at 11am.

In Language Arts, we are continuing to review spelling and grammar in ways to pique students’ interests, as we work on end of the year fun writing topics and activities!

Again, I have been so honored and thankful to have been able to teach your children over these last few months and I hope that they continue to thrive in the future, they have so much potential! That is something that I have been emphasizing in class recently, that no matter who they are, where they’ve been, or their circumstances, they still have the potential to do whatever they can and be successful in so many ways! For those moving on to new schools next year I wish you the best and it has been so amazing to have you all as my first group of students.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at the school, extension 17.

Thanks!
