We have had a great first week back to school in 2014!
At our assembly this Wednesday we were forunate to hear the talented group The Fireants perform. They are visiting our school from Wyoming and will be performing again on Friday night for the community as a part of our visiting artist series.
On Thursday, we had our first ET (Enrichment TIme) of 2014. Advisory program meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for 20 minutes. About twice a month, we have an extended hour session with students, by grade level, to take on larger tasks and activities.
The sixth grade gathered in the Hall of Peace and had fun contests between advisories, such as ‘Who has the widest eyes?’ and ‘Who is the best at having the shortest pinkie finger?’ Students were laughing and have a great time!
Seventh grade students relaxed and read for half of their time, and then did fun team building activities on the MS Field.
The 8th grade kicked off the Population project in the MS Studio. Several 9th grade students visited to answer 8th grade student questions.
It has been a busy and fun and learning-packed week in the AES MS!
