    Recently I shared the news that a large majority of our high school students have had their poems accepted for publication in the American Library of Poetry. While this is exciting new, I received

    While I understand that poetry is not loved by all, the 9-12 poetry unit focuses on how we must choose words wisely. Students condense ideas, thoughts, and emotions. They search for the exact word that they mean, rather than using an approximation. They create phrases to clarify and learn about one another through this community of words. They are then set free to write!

    Needless to say, I am giddy with excitement, am extremely proud of our students, and wanted to share their accomplishments. For some reason, I have a feeling that our students and school will be awarded more writing awards in the future. I will be sure to keep everyone posted. If I have missed anyone or have any errors, please let me know the corrections. (Teachers too need editing help!) Please, be sure to congratulate the students listed below.

    Congrats to all!

    Physical Education

    The students of Altoona-Midway have been keeping busy and active in their physical education classes. Kindergarten has learned lots of new rules and met some new friends.

    At the middle school and high school building, students in 5th through 9th grades have been working on volleyball, badminton, football, and basketball. The younger students are learning the fundamentals of the games while the older students get more advanced. This semester they will be taking on more roles where the students run the activities (create teams, referee, and solve any conflicts) and learn about the history of the games. The units this semester will be soccer, baseball, golf, disc golf, and team handball. “I love working with all the students and think this semester will be a great one,” says Ms. Henderson, PE teacher. ...
