Eagles News

We’re always trying to improve communication between home and school; especially since we know that it’s difficult for middle schoolers to keep their parents informed about what’s happening on campus. We’ll be placing newsworthy information on this page so you don’t have to hound your child for information. It’s a win-win situation!

6th Grade Spotlight

ELA and Social Studies

On their way to becoming future published authors, the sixth graders are diving deep and climbing high up the story plot mountain. They are learning about analyzing the text by modeling helpful thinking aloud strategies to their peers. Merging what they learn about writing and social studies, these young learners interviewed their loved ones and researched about people’s experiences during the 9/11 attack. From this interview, they wrote a narrative and created a digital magazine entry pertaining to the event. In order to foster a sense of patriotism and kindness among the students, each of the kids made a poster highlighting their advocacy. Learning becomes more meaningful when our students are fully engaged and can relate school experience to real-life situations. It has been a great start of the year at AVMS!
