Spirit Week

This week the Renaissance Community hosted a spirit week! Spirit week is when you have a different theme to do everyday. It can have to do with your clothes, your hair, etc.  Monday was comfy day, Tuesday was sports day, Wacky Wednesday, twin Thursday, and Friday is costume day.  I think this Spirit Week was fun and very successful.

What are your chances?

Seventh grade students continue to learn about probability and rational numbers.  We've used beans, mazes, fruit loop critters, dice, tangrams, and spinners, to find the likely hood of an event happening or to create unbiased samples to predict how a population behaves.  

Silver linings

Renaissance students gathered Tuesday morning to plan walking bus routes for our schools Wednesday walk to school day.  On Wednesday morning, more than half of our community walked to school!  We will use this data towards meeting silver status for Rise Vermonts challenge.
