We had a great first physical science class on Wednesday in PreUpper. The 8th graders spent their time working on a get to know you student survey which opened up a conversation about a variety of things such as what the students did over the summer and what makes for a productive learning environment. The students also completed a classroom scavenger hunt to get a feel for where classroom materials and lab equipment is in the classroom. I am looking forward to a great year!
