Learning Commons

March Book Madness is here!  The most popular checked out books have made the Sweet 16 bracket.  Voting will take place each week with ELA classes in the learning commons or classroom.  Stay tuned for the winner to be announced in April.

Lots has been happening in the learning commons!  Makerspace activities began during Hawk Hours, and we had an author visit, current St. Louis resident, Antony John.  Students are completing monthly challenges, and they completed a mosaic sticker poster.  Check out these pictures!

February Challenge--celebrate Black History Month by reading a book about a famous people from the past and present or read a book by an African-American author.  Fill out the 1/2 and turn in for house points.  Challenge ends spring break.
Congratulations to the winning house for 1st semester--GRYFFINDOR!

The Learning Commons has a theme this year if you haven't heard or seen--Harry Potter!  Many activities, bulletin boards, decorations, contests will center around this theme.  If you haven't read the series, this is a GREAT time to start them in honor of the 20th anniversary of the release of the first book (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) in the United States.

Students have been "sorted" into houses by their ELA class and are competing all year long to be the winning house.  They can earn points by doing what they are supposed to be doing in the learning commons as well as participating in monthly challenges.
