Middle School Enrichment Time

On average, twice a month, the Middle School runs a special schedule that includes a one hour Enrichment Time. During that time, there are a variety of activities that happen at each grade level. Sometimes it is service learning, sometimes it is team building but it is always a way to enrich our students. Today, the 6th grade prepared for our visiting author, Ralph Fletcher, by reading some of his work and brainstorming some possible questions that they could ask during his visit. The 7th grade introduced the Aanchal Service project. Students will be working with a special needs school just a 15 minute walk from campus. They will visit the 7th graders here at AES and the 7th graders will visit them at their school a short walk away.  The 8th grade is in the midst of the Population project. Today their Enrichment Time focused on balance and organization as they face the tasks that they have ahead of them.  The group started with some drama games to think about organization and being a good collaborator and ended with students in smaller groups talking about balance.  All in all, a great morning for our Middle School!
