MMS Celebrates No Name Calling Week

Students at Millbrook Middle School are celebrating No Name Calling Week this week. No Name Calling Week is celebrated by students all over the U.S. this week to help bring attention to the importance of being kind to others and to help us remember that we all have one name, our name.

On Tuesday, students wore their superhero T-shirts so they could be a superhero and stamp out name calling. On Wednesday, January 20th, after school in the MMS cafeteria, students will participate in a No Name Calling Poetry Slam. All are invited to attend. On Friday, students will put name calling to bed by wearing their pajamas.

Our students are really cool because they know there is no place for name calling in our school!

Elm Drive Students Have A Writers Workshop Celebration

First Graders had a Writers Workshop Celebration to share their All About Books. The non-fiction books included a table of contents, zoom in page, parts of page and a glossary for their fancy words. The students wrote pieces about their expertise in different areas. The first graders shared their writing and knowledge with Kindergarten students. Each first grader wore a sign to advertise what they were an expert in and then read their writing to the younger students. Some of the subjects first graders chose to write about were planets, guinea pigs, making pizza and hockey. The first graders did an excellent job teaching others from their books. The children were proud teachers and their teachers were very proud of their work as writers!
