During the week of January 12 the sixth grade started their history day projects. Kids from every class will compete at history day project on Conflict and Compromise. They can choose to to go on to the next levels. Also 6th graders started the Historical fiction unit. We picked out books from the library with the help of Ms. Prettol. The newest unit in Social studies is ancient China. We have done many dynasties and made kites inspired by the book Dragonwings by Laurence Yep.
The Poetry Out Loud competition was this week ; there was one winner from each high school and middle school. James Race won for Middle School!! Next week we are going to Marin Headlands. I think most of the 6th graders are happily, nervously, and excitedly preparing for the trip. At Marin Headlands the learning experience and the beautiful wildlife will be breathtaking. All in all Marin seems like it will be a blast!
The girls basketball team had a game on Thursday this week. Lots of students went to the game to support the team. I like how all the sports at our school are highly supported with enthusiasam. Also the wrestlers had a match on thursday as well. The competition was set for Mills Middle School. Some of my friends are on the wrestling team and they sound pumped about the match. And that was a week at Leading Edge! There's always something interesting going on!
