On Tuesday, September 13, HWEM received a special surprise from "Backpacks Full of Hope." They donated backpacks and school supplies they had received through donations and purchases. Backpacks and school supplies will be used for displaced students who are at HWEM from the flood. HWEM would like to thank "Backpacks Full of Hope" for their generosity and support of our school. Pictured from left to right on front row is Joan'nisha Turner, Jamari Holloway, Kaelee Porter, and Larry Morris. Pictured on back row is Kirstin and Sean Hengstler with "Backpacks Full of Hope."
Mrs. Langla's 8th grade students used the Montessori Peg Board to build perfect squares from 2-13. They also found the square root of numbers using the Peg Board. Students recorded the material and the equations on graph paper to show their work. They did this activity prior to doing their interactive notebook lesson to give them the concrete understanding of perfect squares and square roots
