7th/8th Grade Book Club
If any 7th or 8th grade student is interested in joining a virtual book club, send Mrs. Bezdek an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! After I hear from a group of students, I will send out more information to those interested. Have a great day!
Talent Show Must Go On!!!
Even though we won't physically be together on the last day of school to put on the talent show, Mrs. Eissens feels like we still NEED to have our 2020 Camanche Middle School Talent Show. SO, practice a 30-60 second act of singing, dancing, playing an instrument, magic, stupid human tricks, stand-up comedy, anything (school appropriate of course). When you have the perfect act ready, have someone tape it and send it to Mrs. Eissens at email@example.com. Remember to hold your camera horizontally not vertically when taping your clip and she will put all the acts together and share the show on the CMS Student News channel on Youtube our last school day of school. It will be a good substitute for being together and seeing it live!
If you need anything please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond.
Online book reading by Mrs. Reppert
Hi everyone, it's Mrs. Reppert! I want to let you know that I will be reading a new book aloud starting next Monday, April 27th. The book's title is Time For Andrew and it was actually my 25-year-old son, Luke, that suggested that I read it to you. This book was one of his favorites when he was in middle school. On the book cover, it says that it is a ghost story, but it is really more about time travel. Here's the teaser... In this spooky time travel tale, eleven-year-old Andrew switches places with a ghost and travels back to the year 1910. Will he be able to fight his way back through time to reclaim his place in the present? Or, will the ghost steal his life, and leave him trapped in the past forever? I hope you will take the time to listen to this great story as I read it aloud. I will be posting on the CMS website the times that I will be reading it aloud each day. I really miss you all! Stay safe!
