This year we have added a new a addition to the middle school learning system. The fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders have all added the iPad to the daily learning system. I enjoy using my iPad, although in some subjects it is much easier to just write out notes. The reminders app is a good app to use to record homework or if you have an event you need to be reminded of. Most all middle schoolers are using Evernote. Evernote is a good way to keep notes and a good way for teachers to share notes with their students.
I am proud of becoming a stronger reader so far this year. Reading more books during the time that we are given in class and reading at home has also helped me. Reading every day helps me do well in reading.I hope to continue becoming a better reader the rest of the year.
This year the sixth grade went to Camp Cheerio. Camp Cheerio had a lot of fun activities. The first day at Camp Cheerio my advisory (Johnson) and the Bryson advisory went on a 4 1/2 mile hike! Before we went on the hike we had lunch and then we headed to the place where we were going to hike. When we were done with the long hike we drove back to Camp Cheerio. During the day we had two different activities, we would either have to do canoeing, zip-lining/ mudslide, hiking, rock climbing, vertical play pen or archery. At night one group would do dancing in the gym and another group would have a camp fire and tell scary stories. Dancing in the gym was a lot of fun! After we finished our night time activities the whole sixth grade went into Dinning Hall and had a snack. The rest of Camp Cheerio was also a lot a fun! I had a great time at Camp Cheerio!!
