Week in Review:

Rhonda visited us and contributed to our Digital Citizenship workshop on Online Safety and Responsibility. Students worked hard all week on their Individual Earth Science topics, culminating projects, and Science Fair Projects. 6th graders created cuneiform tablets out of clay, and 7th/8th graders discussed the current election and participated in a student vote on all of the propositions, measures, and candidates. We watched some moving artistic tributes by and for African Americans and their struggles for voting rights in America, inspired by the walk from Selma to Montgomery. QHIA students represented beautifully in our Charter Science Fair! Well done!  Your presentations were beautiful and you were all so well spoken.

 

Assignments:

  • Students who did not participate in the Science Fair chose an Earth Science Topic in CK12 to complete assignments on. Once finished, they are to choose a project to demonstrate learning in that area. They were sent a long list of options. Some students are creating children’s books, making google slideshow presentations, making board games, etc.

  • Bucket List Writing: Pleasee separate email pertaining to their writing assignment
