What We Learned Today...September 12th

QSP Assembly:  We kicked off the day today with a school wide assembly in the gym for the annual QSP presentation by Jeff, who talked about all the cool things the students can earn by selling magazines to help fund raise for Deshaye. Once the presentation ended, we headed straight to the Library to sign out our first library books of the year.

Genius Hour: Students were given the entire period to work on formulating the essential questions for their projects.  Everyone needs to have their Genius Hour questions prepared for next class so we can officially begin the project.

Religion: This afternoon we spent some time talking about the September 11th attacks and they have impacted our lives today. However, rather than focus solely on the tragedy of that day, we learned about the altruistic people aboard United Flight 93 as well as many others who made enormous sacrifices to save the lives of others. Once we finished up the story, students began working on a reflection about the attacks, altruism and the need for peace in our world.

Math: Students spent the hour working on their 2.1 handouts.  If students finished early they were given the opportunity to get a head start on the next lesson or silently read their AR books.
