Open House Oct. 6th!

It's never to early to get Open House on your calendar!  From 6:00 - 7:00 PM Peoples Academy Middle Level will be open to all to come visit the classrooms, see what the students are up to, meet the teachers, browse community resources and enjoy a few snacks!  We had a great turn out last year, and hope to see as many of you as possible.

7th Grade Theme Work

7th Graders worked to identify a overarching theme for the year.  This was done progressively with students determining themes within the 4 home-team classrooms and then eventually whole grade voting on a theme which made the most sense.
