6th Grade – We are in the middle of our Greek Mythology unit. The students are loving being put into City-States and competing against each other in mythology trivia games! We will begin our final project on this unit next week and wrap up when Spring Break starts.

7th Grade – We are finishing up our study of Anne Frank. The Socratic Seminars have been wonderful and the students are having great discussions. We will finish this unit by watching the 1957 film version and doing a compare/contrast between them.

8th Grade – We are finishing up our study of the Holocaust memoir Night. The students are currently writing a five paragraph essay on how Elie Wiesel’s relationship with God changes throughout the book. Before we leave for Spring Break, they will begin some pre-reading on their final novel here at St. Cletus: To Kill a Mockingbird.
