IN OUR CLASSES for the week of May 1st

Science (Bishop and Miller) We are beginning our final unit over motion.

Science (Levine) Next week students conclude the energy unit with a quiz scheduled for May 3rd. Students received a study guide on the first day of the unit. Students should use their study guide, labs, class notes, and the wiki to help prepare for the quiz.

Social Studies (Bowers and Ziraldo) Students will be completing a mapping lab on Monsoon Asia. On Thursday, May 4th we will begin our culminating end of the year project. Look for project details, requirements and deadlines to come home on Friday, May 5th. These will also be posted on Schoology.

Language Arts (Dennison and Magistrale) Students will finish up the poetry unit by presenting the Poetry Media Project. A speaker from the Dublin Library branch will be in to discuss our next genre of Fantasy. Finally, students will transition into the next writing unit of argument. Happy reading!

Language Arts (Dramble and Hamilton) Next week we will continue our exploration of poetry and will wrap up digital poetry presentations. The Dublin librarian will visit with us Monday to share titles from the Fantasy and Sci-Fi genre, which we will be reading in May! There will be a spelling test on Friday.

Math 6 (Beery and Voytko) We are wrapping up our unit on surface area of polyhedrons (prisms and pyramids) and volume of prisms. There will be an assessment at the end of the week, either Thursday or Friday.

Math 7 (Voytko) we will explore concepts with circles like area and circumference.

Math 7/8 (O'Neal) The kids have done a great job at being flexible with testing schedules and staying on track with their learning! Next week we will focus on transformations and move onto the Pythagorean Theorem. We will end the year with a unit on Statistics and Probability.

CogEd (DiSilvestro) Students will complete Sustainability and Climate Change Choice Projects then participate in a silent museum walk to give and receive feedback from peers. Students will have time next week to make final revisions. Please ask your child if he or she needs to bring in materials from home.


Attention KMS parents of all incoming 7th grade students:

For the 2017-18 school year, the Ohio Department of Health is again requiring two shots for all students in Ohio to enter the 7th grade. In addition to receiving one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, and Accelular Pertussis) by the start of 7th grade, the state of Ohio has also mandated the MCV4 vaccine (also known as the meningitis shot, Menactra, Menomune, or Menveo). Please drop off, mail, or fax (614-873-1492) a copy of your child's completed vaccine record to the school to the attention of the clinic/school nurse as soon as you receive that vaccine. Many of our students may have already had these vaccines but we are in need of the record from your pediatrician's office prior to the start of the 7th grade in the 2017-18 school year. If you have any questions, please contact the KMS clinic at 614-718-8515. Thank you.
