Spirit Week Fun! Decade Day and Culture Day

Ms. Widmer’s Court of Allegorical Fiction

Students in Ms. Widmer’s class held a mock trial for the character Jack in Lord of the Flies by William Golding.  The prosecution prevailed in all classes, and Jack was found guilty of 2nd-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter for the death of Piggy and Simon.  

This in-depth case study required students to understand the plot and character development.  It also gave them a brief view of how the justice and court system works.  Congratulations to all Titan scholars who participated in the “‘trial” and 

kudos to Ms. Widmer for orchestrating this innovative culminating activity. 

7th Grade Math

In Ms. Ramirez's 7th grade math class, students followed a rubric on this fun group activity. They were tasked to break into teams that created drafts and then transfer their designs to a Post -it Self-stick wall Pad. It was a fun way to review the topic!


Ms. Reilly's Ceramics students were excited to see their first completed glazed pieces come out of the kiln. Ceramics 1 made personalized pinch pots. Ceramics 2 created animal/ machine hybrid sculptures 

Mad Scientists!

Ms. Guslawski's students got a hands-on experience working with Mad Scientist, Carlos Santiago, on decomposition reactions and reactants to yield a product. They collected data, made inferences, and learned through discovery. 

Musical Theater

Musical Theater students went on a field trip this week to FIT to see the production of Percy Jones which is the production that Odyssey will be putting on in the spring semester.

Career Research

In Ms. Mora's career research class, students welcomed a guest speaker from the military to talk about his experience and give inspiration and guidance to the class.

US History

Students in Mr. Beauchamp's 8th grade US history class are reading for peer discussion about the Southern colonies and working on their mapping skills!

Boom-Boom-Clap for AVID!

The AVID coordinator/athletic director created a new team-building game. It was a mix of musical chairs, academic review, dancing, and receiving support from peers.  9th graders showed off with Algebra, Geometry, and Biology subject knowledge. Students had a lot of fun, and there was no one winner. The group succeeded as a whole in reviewing their content knowledge and strengthening their AVID family bond.
