       HI folks!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break!  the cold weather definitely makes it feel like the holiday season.

      We have been busy working on our Pioneers unit.  Most students have finished their pioneer short stories. For the next two weeks we will dive into our research project.  Each student is learning about a topic under the Pioneers/western Expansion topic.  We have gathered resources, and have begun gathering information.
Soon we will plan and craft our essays.

      On Friday students received a home assignment to do a hands-on artifact connected to their research topic.  Please discuss this assignment with them, and help them brainstorm possible ideas.  They received a form on Friday to have an adult sign and have returned.  Please have your student return this as soon as possible.

      A big thanks to Rowan for writing a great Secret Santa proposal.  Talk to your student to see if they would like to participate, and a note with more details will be coming soon.
