This one is taking it back in time! #WatertownWay RMS 6th graders recently finished a unit about the Roaring 20’s. They researched famous people from the 1920’s and 1930’s and then came to a mock speakeasy dressed as that person. They had something to eat and drink, told the class a little about themselves, listened to some jazz music and watched a Charlie Chaplin film!

#WatertownWay students in Eric Kleine's 6th grade Dual Language Social Studies class at RMS explored "La Tumba del Faraón Desconocido" (The Tomb of the Unknown Pharaoh). Over the past three days, students learned about Egyptian Hieroglyphics and the letters they represent in the Latin alphabet. Each pair of students then wrote two sentences about one aspect of this Unknown Pharaoh's life and posted it on the wall. The students entered the "Tomb" just like egyptologists would - with only flashlights to guide their way - and translated the hieroglyphs into Spanish, which was not an easy task given that the writings sometimes read left to right, right to left, or up and down. They then wrote a field report to an Egyptian newspaper that included his name and details about the Pharaoh's life. What an awesome learning experience!

Hello RMS Families, Parent Teacher Conferences will be held tonight from 4:00-7:00 PM. The conferences will be a drop in format that you are able to stop in at your convenience to meet with your students’ teachers. We anticipate individual conferences lasting for 10-15 minutes to ensure we have enough availability for everyone to meet with each of their student’s teachers. If you think you will need more time for these conversations, we would ask that you schedule a time outside of conferences to have a more in-depth discussion. A copy of your student schedule will be available in our commons for you to pick up, if needed. As always, we encourage students to attend conferences with their parents/guardians. Thank you
