It is so hard to believe that we are down to the last week of school!  I can honestly say that I will miss these students as they move on to 8th grade.  They have been a wonderful class in so many ways.

Camp pictures (from Noah Blue and some counselors) are posted on the main KMS page.  Those pictures are available for free to for any use you may have.  The camp video made by my daughter Bobbie Szabo will be posted on the main page soon.  Any lost and found left after camp is now in the KMS lost and found.

Grades are all updated and current on IC.  Only one grade left to be added this school year.  Grades will be finalized on Friday, May 26.


Monday, May 22-Wendesday, May 24-  work days for the FINAL PROJECT

Thursday, May 25-  FINAL PROJECT presentations  (this is the last grade to be entered)

Friday, May 26-  regular period 1 class, then report to BT for the rest of the day— FUN-N-STUFF trip.

We are so close to spring break!  It has been a long winter with all the weird weather, changes from bitter cold to warm, high winds, “snow days” etc.  Only one more week before a well deserved break.

This was an exhausting week for our students.  I am so PROUD of how hard they worked on the ELA state assessment.  The afternoons after testing were filled with activities based on the movie The Truman Show.  And in my room the day ended with a fierce Boggle competition!  Job well done:)


**You can review for the post-test by doing the practice test on google classroom- and by looking over any/all of the quizlets on my webpage link.

Monday, April 3-  Periodic table activities continue:)

Tuesday, April 4-  Kahoot review for post-test

Wednesday, April 5-  post-test

Thursday, April 6-  More periodic table fun

Friday, April 7-  Quiz on elements 1-7-  name, symbol, #  Activity:)

***Have a safe and wonderful vacation!  See you back in school on Tuesday, April 18!


Bonus:  The periodic table has changed over the years.  Do a search and find the oldest version of the periodic table you can-  send me a picture or bring in a picture.

Our study of ecology is now concluded.  We are moving on to basic chemistry- parts of an atom and the periodic table.

Next week we start the AIR testing.  Our schedule will be a little different for Wednesday and Thursday- we will NOT be having regular classes (with the exception of period 5 and period 9 encore classes).  Students will remain with their testing groups and teachers for periods 1-4, 7-8.

The following week- on April 5- we will be taking the science post-test.  This should not be a big problem for students if they were paying attention all school year.  I will post a review kahoot the night before the test.  We will be reviewing for a few minutes each day in class up to the test.


Monday, March 27–  Begin reviewing for the science post-test-  do not panic as you know this material- we’ve really been revisiting it all year!

Tuesday, March 28–  Atoms and periodic table- use google slides to complete a flip page of notes.

Wednesday, March 29- Thursday, March 30– AIR testing for ELA.  Testing in testing groups periods 1-4.  All grade activity periods 7-8.

Friday, March 31–  Back to atoms and periodic table


Bonus:  When was the atom discovered?  By whom?  How?
