not have supervision until that time. When students arrive after 7:40 a.m., they are also to
remain in the Commons until the 8:00 a.m. bell. Only students with a pass from a teacher may
be in the halls before then. Thank you for your cooperation.

6TH GRADE FCS NEWS
MRS. LANT
Half of the sixth graders are just beginning their Family and Consumer Science rotation. The other half will have FCS
as their next rotation. Family and Consumer Science is delivered in a modular setting. Students will complete two modules in
related areas of FCS such as food preparation and nutrition, sewing and clothing care, interior design, child care, fashion and
textiles and families. Each student will have one module that includes cooking and nutrition. All middle school students complete a sewing project , but not all in the same year. Some of the students will complete a pillow project this year, some will
sew in 7th grade and some will sew in 8th grade. As a whole class we will learn about kitchen safety and sanitation, reading and
using recipes, and information about babysitting.
7TH GRADE NEWS
MR. BLUHM, MRS. BODYFIELD, MRS. HANSEN, MRS. KUDRNA, MS. LUTES,
MRS. PILKINGTON, MR. PREISSLER, MRS. REESE, MS. SORENSON
In Science, 7th graders are finishing up the Astronomy unit and will be taking the district common assessment. After we have
taken the assessment, students will be working on a final project. They should have plenty of time to finish this project in
class. Once the projects are finished, we will be moving into the Inside Earth unit, which is the final unit of the year.
In Language Arts we will finish 3rd quarter preparing for standardized testing. This unit will review basic mechanics, usage, and
grammar skills. Students will be responsible for more daily assignments and preparing for quizzes and tests.
Seventh grade math classes have just finished all operations of fractions as well as using formulas for finding area and perimeter of many shapes. Next, we will be preparing for our last district common assessment, which covers all operations of
fractions and decimals. We are also preparing for our Stanford 10 and NeSa-M tests which will begin in April. Pre-Algebra
classes have just finished solving and graphing inequalities. We will be starting a unit on Geometry and also preparing for Stanford 10 and NeSA-M tests.
In World History we are finishing up with the Middle Ages. The students really enjoyed this chapter as they had the opportunity,
as a group, to construct a castle. It was a project that took a lot of time and effort, but the finished products were outstanding!
We will now be moving on to study Africa and Asia.

READING 7: We will finish
quarter by studying organizational patterns and figurative language. We will then prepare for the
NeSA-R test. EMS students will be taking the NeSA-R the week of March 25-28. Please be sure students are getting adequate
rest and eating a good breakfast! It does make a difference in their testing. AR goals are March 1 st (Sorenson) and March 7th

HUMAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT—7TH GRADE
MR. RAPP
Beginning in the middle of February the first half of the 7th grade students will start their Human Growth and Development exploratory health class. The second half of 7th grade will begin Human Growth and Development on April 10th. This class is designed to reinforce the values of home and family. It is a comprehensive class that is strongly abstinence-based. It respects
parents, adolescents, and human sexuality. We always stress the importance of parents, family, and healthy decision-making.
We encourage parents to ask questions, discuss concerns and look over curriculum materials by checking out a packet of materials to review. Parents will also be asked to complete four discussion homework assignments with their students throughout the six week class. Research shows that the best Human Growth and Development/Family Life programs are those in
which schools and families work together as a team to educate young people. We appreciate your support.
Parent packets are available for checkout at any time. Please feel free contact Mr. Rapp at Elkhorn Middle School with any
questions, requests, or concerns through email at [email protected] or by calling the school (402) 289-2428.

Blair Middle School Honor Band – The Blair Honor Band is one of the premier honor bands for middle school students in this
state. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, April 6 at Otte-Blair Middle School in Blair, Nebraska. The event consists
of over 200 band students from over 40 schools divided into 2 concert bands. They rehearse all day and then give a performance at 4:00 PM. Students are selected through nominations from their directors and are usually based on instrumentation
needs. This year, we had 7 students selected: Jason Balters, Sam Christensen, Gracie Hamik, MacKenzie Jeppesen, Karlie
Johnston, Devin Kortan, and Koushik Sanjeevi.
Big Band Jazz Night – On Saturday, April 27, the Elkhorn Public Schools will be hosting the ninth annual Elkhorn Big Band Jazz
Night. The event will be held in the Elkhorn South High School commons area and runs from 6:00-9:30 PM. All the jazz bands
from all three middle schools and both high schools will be performing that night on a rotating basis. In addition to the playing
of the bands, there will be a dance floor and concessions available. This event serves as a benefit for the Elkhorn Jazz Bands
with all proceeds going toward purchasing jazz music for future performances. Ticket prices are $5 for adults, $3 for students,
and $1 for all ―kids‖ over 65. Please mark this date on your calendars, polish off those dancing shoes, and start those swing
dance lessons right away! See you then!
Private Lessons – At Elkhorn Middle School, we try to provide every student with as much time and individual attention as possible to make them the best musicians we can. However, for those students that either desire more intense musical pursuits
or need that extra attention to continue improving their skills, seeking a private instructor for your student is an excellent option. Besides guaranteed one-on-one instruction on a regular basis, usually weekly, private instructors are experts on their
individual instruments and can bring that professional expertise to your student. While most private instructors teach out of a
studio at a music store or their home, some will drive to your home to provide the lessons. There are many private teachers
available with varying personalities, areas of emphasis, and years of experience so matching your student with the right
teacher is very important. If you are interested in private instruction for your student, please do not hesitate to contact Mr.
Johnson at any time.

EMS SCHOOL PLAY
This was our third year producing a play at the EMS, and it is quickly becoming a wonderful tradition. We are the only
middle school within the Elkhorn District to hold an after school play production, and it has been made possible by all of the
generosity and support we have received from the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation, the students, parents, teachers, and
community. The ―Seussification of Romeo and Juliet‖ was a huge success! THANK YOU!

Monitoring the Online History on Your Home Computer
You can view the web history of your computer by clicking on the history tab at the top of your internet browser screen. Using
the history tab you can see what websites your child has visited and what items they have downloaded.
What if my student deletes the browser history? Have a conversation about deleting the browser history with your student. If
he or she is following your rules for using the home computer—there will be no reason to delete the history.
What is Instagram?
Instagram is an app, which allows users to take photographs, then edit, filter and share them. Instagram is available now on
both Apple and Android devices. The terms of use require users to be at least 13 years old. By default, photos can be viewed
by anyone—if your student is using Instagram, make sure he or she is making their photos private. Instagram also has a feature known as ―geotagging.‖ Geotagging will allow others to see the exact location where the photo was taken. As a general
rule, users (especially teens) should check to make sure geotagging is set to off before sharing a photo via Instagram.
Like other social networking sites, Instagram has been linked to cyberbullying. It is relatively easy to create a fake account and
users can post pictures that may be embarrassing to others. Those who view the photos can make comments, which is where
a majority of the bullying occurs. Any inappropriate photos/comments can be reported via the report/block tool on Instagram.
An Educational App—Science 360
Science 360 is published by the National Science Foundation and provides students with free information and news on science and engineering. Students can explore videos, stories and photos that highlight topics like nature, space and much
more. Features range from short videos to complex text, so Science 360 has something for all age ranges. This free app is
available on both Apple and Android devices.
