Have you ever thought about what it would be like to have to wear uniforms to school? They are often mandatory if you attend a private school, like Miss Osmond did in Dubai. Do you think they would be a positive thing to have in a public school system as well, such as HLPS, or do you think they would have more negative aspects? State 2-3 reasons FOR and 2-3 reasons AGAINST having uniforms in school. State your opinion and why you feel that way. If you had to wear a uniform, would you rather have all of the clothing look exactly alike or would you rather have mix and match options? Why? If you were picked to design a uniform for your school, what would it look like? What rules would you have for wearing the uniform?

As we discussed in class, people go journeys for many reasons. Reasons include for relaxation, educational, sports, & recreation, fun and adventure. Of course, as we said there are many other reasons that people go on journeys. We also discussed that journeys are not necessarily to a far away place. Your grade 6 year in school could be discovered a journey and now you are on a journey through grade. Tell about in detail a journey that you have taken……Remember it does not have to be to a Fancy place!!!!
Thank you 7B for a wonderful school year. Have a fun summer and be safe! Ms. Bailey

Ivan The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
An award-winner for so many reasons, this book needs to be placed in the hands of your favorite middle-school readers (and everyone else in the family) post-haste. Ivan is a silver back gorilla, kept in a mall zoo for over three decades. While he still has memories of his short life in the jungle and his family, he is content with his friends and his home – until baby elephant Ruby arrives to shake up his beliefs. Now Ivan must decide how he will continue to live his life, and whether he can ever be happy again. Emotional, sweet, funny and heart-breaking by turns, this is a beautiful tale that is sure to be an instant classic.
