Eighth Grade Creates Family Symbols

Eighth Grade Creates Family Symbols

The eighth-grade students just completed the novel, Johnny Tremain.  Johnny Tremian is a Revolutionary War historical fiction novel that follows the life of an apprentice through his journey from childhood to adulthood and his involvement in the rebel movement.  Students learned about the Sons of Liberty.  These men wore a medallion of the Tree of Liberty around their necks to symbolize their group.  Students created a symbol that represented their families and presented them to the class.

8th Grade at Ridgecrest

The mountains of North Carolina and beautiful fall colors recently greeted seventh and eighth-grade students as they traveled to Ridgecrest Conference Center.  Seventh-grade students and teachers battled it out in laser tag, played volleyball, and enjoyed the low ropes course, zip line, and climbing tower.  Eighth-grade students tackled the challenges of the high ropes course, ran up the mountain playing laser tag, and also hiked to the rec center.  Students enjoyed receiving encouragement from peers as they challenged themselves to try something new and out of their comfort zones!
