8th Grade for the Week of 2/13/2017
The eighth grade study of mid-century America continues as we begin our analysis of the Vietnam War. We will continue this study through the month. Students will take a broad look at the war at first and follow with an investigation into causes and policies that kept the U.S. in Vietnam. Our assessment for this unit will be presentations on various components of the war and contemporary influences on American foreign policy.

6th Grade for the Week of 2/13/2017
While immigration is in the news today, sixth graders are studying immigration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We will look at countries of origin of mass migrations and how successful people were at being synthesized into the general population. Students read "The New Collosus," the poem on the Statue of Liberty, by Emma Lazurus, and discussed the appeal of the United States for people in other countries, then and now.
