Markups, Tax, Tips, Discounts! 7th grade math practicing real world math application with "running errands" and "eating lunch" activity.
One of the most anticipated classes for 7th and 8th grades in PE is Archery. By following the guidelines of the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP), students learn the basics and safety goals for the class. Upper body strength, hand-eye coordination, patience, focus, and confidence are just a few benefits of the lifetime sport. Many students who have never picked up a bow often surprise themselves of how well they can shoot and how much they enjoy Archery!

Mr. Pfaff is currently teaching his 7th grade students how to draw 1-point perspective linear room drawings. He teaches them about how they can create 3D objects in space by using the 1-point perspective drawing method. He first teaches them how to create boxes in space using the 1-point perspective method and then how to manipulate those boxes into all different kinds of objects. These are examples of Mr. Pfaff’s students learning how to draw beds in 1-point perspective.
Parent Teacher Conferences will be conducted on October 11 for BES/ SMES and October 12 for PCMS/SMHS. Sign-up forms will go home on Friday.
