Greetings Families!

6th grade scientists learned how to enter their rocket experiment data into a spreadsheet and transform that data into informative and attractive graphs.  Next week we will be interpreting and analyzing the data to draw conclusions about the rocket performance.

7th and 8th graders learned about metacognition in preparation for their science test.  Be sure to ask your child what their learning preference is and what specific study strategies work for their learning style.  Next week we will begin a short project exploring the impact of synthetic polymers (plastics) on our lifestyle and environment.

Important upcoming dates:

Oct 27 – MIS 2nd Annual RUNdraiser

Oct 28 – Boys basketball game, 4pm, MIS gym. Come cheer on the Monarchs!

Have a great weekend!

Cheers,

Jen and the Middle School Team
