High School Information Night
On October 13th Mrs. Adams will be meeting with the 8th grade families to discuss high school options. She would like to extend an invitation to 5th, 6th, and 7th grade parents to also attend. We know many of you are starting to think about high school options and how Cascade Heights supports your child in making the transition. The meeting will be held in the 8th grade classroom at 7:00 pm. We hope you are able to make it.
Ms. Venture’s Updates:
Science: Sixth grade students spent this week learning about constellations. Please see the blog for details, presentations, and the Constellation Map Project (due October 17th).
Seventh grade students spent the week learning about Antoine Lavoisier, John Dalton, Dimitri Mendeleev, and the Periodic Table. Please see the blog for daily details.
Literature: We are continuing to develop knowledge of classical literature through The Prince and the Pauper (6th) and Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (7th). Please ask your student to share with you information about storyline, characters, and interesting new vocabulary they have learned!
Computer/Library: The school’s library is looking great and is being used by all classes thanks to the continued efforts of 6th and 7th grade students! We are looking forward to the end of MAP testing so that we can begin our computer studies.
Mr. Vieira’s Updates:
Riggs (Spelling): Our daily Riggs tests are now up to 30 words. Students learn six new words a day, and are then tested on that set of words five times before the words drop off of the test list. Students will practice missed test words each night in addition to their new words homework.
History/Geography: This week sixth grade began its study of the origins of Judaism and Christianity, and seventh grade began to take a look at American imperialist ambitions in the late 1800s. For a more detailed overview of each grade’s studies, visit the blog:

Writing: This week we began the transition to lengthier writing pieces and will continue to expand on this next week when we introduce the editing and final draft steps of the writing process. Your student should expect a new writing assignment every week or two.
