The high school English classes are working on writing "This I Believe" personal narratives. For this assignment, students will be focusing on a belief or value that is important to them, and then they will be writing a narrative about what event in their life brought them to that belief or value. Based on Edward R. Murrow's original intent of the "This I Believe" news broadcasts started in the 1950s, these stories are meant to be positive and inspirational.

First-grade students recently read a story called “Fiddle Sticks.” In the story, the Superkids play a game where they tell a story by passing a stick from one Superkid to the next to tell a new part of the story. At the end of the week, they were able to play their own fiddle stick game, where they came up with crazy stories about eating pizza with dinosaurs and getting lost on the way to school.

The fifth grade class is wrapping up Unit 2 on the Maya, Aztec, and the Inca civilizations. We have been working hard on our end of the unit Codex Project, in which we write a paragraph about an aspect of each civilization. Students chose to write about either the architecture, farming methods, or social classes of each empire. Once we finish writing our paragraphs, we will draw images representing an aspect of each empire, age our paper, and decorate it with hieroglyphics to give our project the look of an authentic codex.
