Yearbook Staff Applications for 7th and 8th graders

Hello parents and students!
I hope you are all enjoying your summer! I just got off of a Zoom with our yearbook representative and it has reminded me that we are going to need to start reaching out to see if there are students interested in being on our yearbook staff this year. Our cover is due in October, so we have lots to talk about and think about.
I will obviously be talking to all the students about this when I “see” them on August 24th but I figured I would go ahead and start to put the information out there so students and families could talk about it since I am asking for all applications to be submitted by Friday, August 28th.
For this year ONLY, we are opening it up to seventh graders as well. Priority will be given to interested 8th graders but I am also aware of some other students that might enjoy participating, so we are trying something new.
Yearbook will require extra work for your child and would normally include having to stay after school one day a week to work on it, usually Wednesdays until 4. This year we will start our meetings virtually to begin our brainstorming process and getting to work on our theme and cover design. Except for the cover, all of the yearbook is done online so your child would have to enjoy designing pages, taking pictures, or writing summaries of events and things. It really takes students with a variety of talents to make the yearbook complete!
Please consider talking this over with your child. I would love to see their ideas (part of the application) and look forward to seeing who is interested. Simply click the link below to get started.
Thanks so much,
Mrs. Zack

Summer Work!

Want to come back to school in the fall and attend our ice cream social? What about having the math department serve you pancakes? If either of these options interest you, please take a moment and check out the information below.

Every summer our students are asked to read and complete math assignments (grades 4-8) to help prevent the summer slide. Below you will find the links needed for these assignments.

Middle School Reading (6-8) – We are asking all students to read at least three books over the summer and be ready to give a Book Talk (directions attached) when they return to school.

Mrs. Marcelino’s Ice Cream Social Summer Reading Log – Students in kindergarten through third grade are asked to read and record 10 picture books or 3-4 beginning chapter books. Students entering fourth through eighth grade are asked to read three chapter books.

Summer ALEKS assignments (4th-8th) – Students in fourth through eighth grade are asked to complete 8 ALEKS assignments over the summer with a score of 90% or higher. If students score lower, they can use the Quick Retake option to simply redo the problems they missed. Assignments can be found in the upper left-hand corner of ALEKS by clicking on the three lines and selecting “Assignments”. It is strongly suggested that students complete the 8 ALEKS topics before working on their personal pie if they are close to finishing their pie so as to not lose their work on the assignments.

Thank you! We hope you have a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, August 19th
