January was a very busy month for Team Triumph. Recently we went on a community ski trip to Jay Peak. We had an awesome time! We are looking forward to our culminating event on February 20th. We have been learning all about the regions of the United States. In reading class we have been using a web-quest to explore the regions. In writing class we have been working on writing persuasive pieces about encouraging someone to visit our assigned state. The Math class is working on drawing a map of the United States to scale. It is going to look so great when it is finished. To get ready for our culminating event on February 20th we will be creating Glogsters about our assigned state.
The Cheerleaders in grades 5-8 are going to the complex for a practice on the varsity mats.
