The Freeport Middle School Art Department practiced color mixing and the color wheel today using cake icing, vanilla wafers, and food coloring.  It was a delicious way to prepare for the upcoming painting projects we will be creating this year.  Submitted by FMS Art teacher, Kendra Estes

Congratulations to WHS students Chloe Wilder & Emiliano Joyner for earning perfect scores on last year's ELA and US History EOC exams!

On Friday, August 30th, Mrs. Gaby Brown’s seventh grade AVID elective students were happy to lend a helping hand to Mrs. Emily Kent’s sixth grade reading students.  AVID binder organization is a fundamental for success for WMS students, and it is often difficult for sixth graders as they adjust from having just one or two teachers in elementary school to seven teachers in middle school.  The seventh grade AVID students helped prepare the sixth graders for their first binder check by explaining each part of the rubric and by providing tried and true tips for staying organized.  In true Warrior spirit, WMS students collaborate to help each other succeed.

House competitions at the WISE Center are serious business, and it was Ramsey's House of Archer for the win!  But, everyone was able to share in the rewards when Live School paychecks were passed out to use at the school store.

WDE’s guidance counselor, Mrs. Dawn Barone, visited some first grade classrooms to read a book, We Don’t Eat Our Classmates. Throughout the story, she discussed the book with them and asked questions. Mrs. Barone reminded students to not only be their best academically but to also be the best, kindest friend that they can be!

Students in third grade learned the difference between making an inference and an observation.  Students were asked to observe as the teacher presented them with what appeared to be a candle.  Students continued to observe as their teacher lit the "candle" and blew it out.  Next, they were asked to share what was observed.  After sharing out their observations, third graders were completely surprised when their teacher took a big bite of the candle and ATE IT!  The “candle” turned out to be a mozzarella stick with a sliver of almond as the wick.  This was the perfect opportunity for teachers to discuss the difference between an inference and an observation.  They learned that observations are based on facts or evidence gathered using the five senses.  Inference is based on their own reasoning and speculation.
