After we return from Mid-Winter break, the eighth grade will be continuing to read Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and heading into the Great Depression in social studies. The seventh grade will be mid-way into No Promises in the Wind and learning about the Industrial Revolution. Both groups will continue their work in vocabulary and writing via journals, essays, and papers. The sixth grade has studied ancient Greece with a focus on art, architecture, philosophy, and geography. We will also study the two different cultures of Athens and Sparta when we return.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy mid-winter recess!
