Classroom News

In PE students had a guest speaker, Donya Hnath presenting:"The Environment and Modern Agriculture" Students explore how raising farmed animals and related crops affect ecosystems and our health through global warming, the depletion of natural resources, the pollution of soil, water and air, the use of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics, soil erosion, deforestation and world hunger. Participants discuss alternative choices that can help protect our environment. The latest meat and plant-based food science technologies are also discussed.


These proud 4th grade students created a wonderful piece of art reflecting the specials that we offer at RMAE!    

To end their unit in seventh grade math, students created probability projects and shared them with their classmates today after the unit test.      

After completing our Core Novel, Robin Hood, Students dressed up as Robin Hood, Maid Marion, the Queen of England and the Sheriff of Nottingham. They watched the movie to compare and contrast with the book and wrote paragraphs explaining whether they thought Robin Hood was a hero or a villain. Their favorite was acting out the story as they read as a Readers’ theater.

Mrs. Wellman's 2nd grade class learned about insects from the Butterfly Pavilion!
