The ACMS Chess Team participated in The Sacramento High/Middle School Championship which took place at the Rio Linda Preparatory Academy in Rio Linda. We fielded a team of 6 players, 5 of whom were 8th-graders and qualified for the middle/high school division. The 6th player, Joseph B., is a 6th grader, who competed in the grades 4-6 category. The event is structured as an individual event, with individual scores of the top 4 players from the same team being added together to determine a team score. Read more by clicking on the headline.
This is Ms. Berry's Homeroom Class. Here is what they have been doing, "We've been talking about how to make a positive impact in our community. We've been sprinkling kindness throughout the school by writing positive messages on sticky notes and sneaking into classrooms after school and putting them on lockers. It's been received positively and some homerooms have continued to pass the kindness forward. We talked about our campus and our community and kids said that they'd noticed how messy things were. I asked if they'd be willing to help, or if they would be grossed out. They said they'd love to help. So I bought gloves and brought bags and instead of English class we went out during 4th period and picked up all of that garbage."
We asked students from across the district, “How can your teachers help you be a better learner?” Check out the video with their responses.
