Children’s Books About Major Economic Events

The 8th grade recently finished studying economics.  As part of this study, each student had to use an allegory to explain a major economic event in the United States’ history.  They turned these allegories into children’s books.  The books were put to the ultimate test when the 8th graders read them to some of Quest’s younger children.

Sparta or Athens?

As part of the study of ancient governments, students had to decide whether they would rather be part of Sparta’s oligarchy or Athen’s democracy.  After making their selection, students competed in a series of challenges that relate to the ancient world.

Winner: Grab and Grow

Congratulations to Antonio for creating the “Grab and Grow.”  His creation won the “Black Pearls” contest.  Students were tasked to create something of value by using things currently not valued.  This is part of our exploration of economics and helps us answer the essential question: What makes something valuable?

Thank You 7th Grade

Thank you so much for attending our performance of Romeo and Juliet and contributing to the feast.  I hope that your children will have a lifelong love and understand of Shakespeare after this experience.

Romeo and Juliet

One of my favorite things about this year’s “Short Shakespeare” production of Romeo and Juliet was the casting of a female Benvolio.  This is especially helpful to our students as many of them are taking on roles that would traditionally call for someone of a different gender.  We finished reading the play on Wednesday and will begin working on an essay tomorrow.
