Venture Families,

     As this is the final week of the term, things are very busy.  In my class the students are currently working on their final product for this case study.  That is due this week.  It is a presentation with a memorization component.  The students are working very hard on this and I am looking forward to hearing and seeing those next week.  Also remember that this Wednesday and Thursday we have SLC's at the school.  This is a great time to meet with your student's teachers and see the great work your students are doing.  Your students will have new electives as of Monday.  They will be reminded of this in their Crews next week.  Have a great week!

Venture Families,

This week we have covered some of the key events the led to our Revolution.  Those include the feudal system, Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, the Glorious Revolution, and salutary neglect.

We are currently covering the French and Indian War.  The students will see by the time we are finished how the French and Indian War was the catalyst of the American Revolution. 

Remember we have Winter Day on the 15th, which as of today is still happening.  We can only hope for snow and colder temperatures to ensure it happens.  Have a great weekend.

Venture Families,

     This past week we talked about the Scientific Revolution.  We focused on the key people and ideas of this Revolution.  That discussion led us directly into the Age of Enlightenment.  We learned of the Enlightenment and the main people and ideas.  We will be wrapping up the Enlightenment this week.

Families,

This week we had Celebration of Learning on Thursday.  It was great to see many of you there enjoying the projects your students have worked so hard on.  This week in History we have been preparing for CoL as well as starting our new case study.  We are now talking about the Scientific Revolution.  It has been a nice change of pace and the kids seemed engaged in what they are learning about.  Have a great weekend!
