Final Weekly Update :( 6/6/12

Today we ended a GREAT year of learning on the team.  Mr. Aho, Mrs. Lussem, and Mrs. Ziegenfuss will really miss everyone and hope they'll come back to share all of their 7th grade successes next year.  We also hope everyone has a fun-filled, safe summer.  Thanks to all of our parents, teachers, administrators, and especially STUDENTS for a fabulous year!!

Bottle Rocket Launching in IT!!
Before our skating party on Monday, we launched the rockets we built last week.  We were lucky that it was a beautiful, sunny morning.

SKATING PARTY!  Monday afternoon we had our sixth grade party at Orbit Skate Center.  We had a great time skating with our friends, playing games, eating snacks, and just hanging out.  Watch the videos below and look for us whizzing by!

Some of us played the math game Set with Ms. Atkins and Mr. Craig 
when we were taking a break from skating.

Lucas bought just a few things at the skating party!

FIELD DAY!  On Tuesday morning, the whole sixth grade participated in Field Day activities set up by Mr. Craig and Ms. Renno.  We got to try 12 different activities.  We were lucky again that it was really sunny and not at all hot.  Thanks Ms. Renno and Mr. Craig!!!

Tug-of-War--everyone's favorite!

Everyone loves dodgeball!

Mr. Keadle and Mr. Kuch look pretty serious!
