7th & 8C Plays
Eighth grade students in the Advanced Robotics class at NMS used their knowledge of gears to design and construct mechanisms that would allow their robots to increase their speed. Once they finished the construction and programming of their robots, the students held a race to see which robot was the fastest.

"As a culmination to their unit on French foods and drinks, Madame Gallion's 8th grade French class recently took a field trip to La Madeleine, in Baton Rouge.
There, they could taste-test some authentic French dishes like a croque-monsieur or quiche. Students enjoyed some delicious desserts to finish lunch.
Once they returned to NMS, students were able to try various French cheeses including Camembert
and some goat's cheese (for the adventurous ones!) as well as some Orangina."
Food Drive Great Success! Thank you NMS Students & Faculty!

The Great Debate
Ms. Washington’s 8th Grade ELA students watched a clip of CNN Student News’ Third and Final Presidential Debate. While the clip played, students and teachers completed the activity “Check the Strategy” which identifies persuasive writing strategies.
Students and teachers marked a “C” for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party Presidential Nominee, and a “T” for Donald Trump, the Republican Party Presidential Nominee, when they heard each specific persuasive strategy on individual forms. At the end of the video, everyone was asked to tally only the “C’s” and “T’s” from the sections titled “Claims”, “Logos”, and “Research”.
This information would provide who “won” the debate based on facts and logic for the portion of the clip viewed and only for the final debate.
Students and teachers were surprised at the overall outcomes but discussed because all three debates were not watched entirely and checked for all persuasive strategies, results were not necessarily insightful to the actual outcomes. However, everyone agreed that the persuasive strategies categories of “Big Names”, “Pathos”, “Ethos”, and “Kairos” were used much more than “Claims”, “Logos”, and “Research” during the clip.
Letters About Literature Contest Winners
This is a contest sponsored by The Library of Congress, and each state chooses three winners per age division to send to represent the state in the national contest. The student write a letter to his or her favorite author about how the literature has made a difference in perception or understanding of the world. Danielle won first place for her letter to Katherine Paterson and won $100. Lauren won second place for her letter to Rick Riordan and won $75. Cooper won third place for his letter to John Flanagan and won $50. All three students will be honored at a ceremony at the Louisiana Book Festival on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Danielle, as first place winner, will read her letter at the ceremony.
