Here we are at the mid point of the school year.  It amazes me how fast time flies!  We are beginning a new unit on bullying this week and hope to get started on our anti-bullying skits early next week.  Work on these will continue on Monday and hopefully we will begin presenting on Tuesday.  Remember to bring any props if you need them.  Let's start the new semester off on the right foot!!!

We are fast approaching the end of the semester.  There are a number of students that need to complete make ups on their fitness gram tests.  We will be using our usual "Game Day" Friday to get those completed.  Also....if you have missed a day of PE, be sure to get your make up forms submitted to Mr. Auckland.  The second half of the year is already upon us.  Time flies when you're having fun!!!  Keep up the good work everyone!!!

We are completing our Health CBA "Eat, Shop, Move" so we can move on to our next unit. We are required by the state to complete two CBA's each year in Health/P.E.  These are scored by the teacher and our numbers are reported to the state at the end of the school year.

We are underway with our PTO 
Jog-a-Thon fundraiser.  The kids have found sponsors for their efforts.  All funds raised are helping our PTO do great things around our buildings.  We thank our PTO for all their hard work.  They do amazing things for our schools!!!
We are beginning our Tuesday classes with Ms. Lindsey Lonner, Castle Rock School Districts drug/alcohol counselor. She will be talking with our classes about drugs, what they look like, how they affect the body, and ways to help students say no to drugs and alcohol. 

We are now a month into the school year and things are progressing as normal.  We are working on developing our health class routines and will be doing a weekly journal entry in our composition notebooks starting next Monday, so remember to bring those notebooks in.  This week we are beginning a unit on nutrition and looking at how the foods we eat affect our bodies and looking at nutrition labels on the foods we eat and how "honest" these labels really are.  We will continue with our bike unit in PE as the weather allows and will be doing a mile make-up run this week for students that need to get that in....if the rain holds off.

Welcome to my classroom page.  I am excited to begin another year here at Castle Rock Middle School and look forward to seeing the familiar faces of our 7th & 8th graders and the new, incoming 6th graders.  Feel free to click around.  More information will be added as the year progresses.
