January 9 - January 13

Happy New Year!  We are very close to finishing Mildred Taylor's novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.  It has been an amazing journey following the Logan's as they struggle to keep their land in the face of injustice.  Additionally, the students have been researching sharecropping, Jim Crow laws, the Ku Klux Klan, and the Great Depression in order to complete their Investigations reports.  It will be exciting to see the final projects on January 17th.

We are also getting ready for our Sixth Grade Retreat, January 26th and 27th.  It looks to be an exciting couple of days filled with tons of great activities.  What an amazing opportunity for us to build community and relationships.
