80's music challenge outside of the choir classroom. Each day, Mrs. Samuels sends out the "match-up" for the day between two 80's songs. Our staff and students vote at the end of seminar. Survive and advance, 80's music style. A perfect way to prepare for March Maddness.
In Mr. Turner's Social Studies class, seventh graders completed a unit on Ancient China. They made (and played) game boards to demonstrate traveling the Silk Road.
