TEAM TRADITION NEWS
TEAM PRIDE NEWS
In ELA, students just finished reading their second
independent book and are wrapping up the book project to
go along with it. After analyzing poetry and applying
poetry terms and figurative language, we are moving into
persuasive writing. We are reviewing how to form an
opinion and support it and are learning how to form a
counter-argument. Students will begin to use articles to
strengthen their written arguments.
In Math 8, students have learned all about lines, angles,
triangles, and polygons. Students explored the Pythagorean
Theorem, its applications and will soon be learning about
transformations, congruence and similarity. In Integrated
Algebra, students have been exploring exponents, functions
and polynomials. They will soon be learning about
inequalities, sets, and systems of equations.
In Science 8, students learned about waves, the
electromagnetic spectrum, and also sound and light and
how they travel. In Living Environment, students have
been learning all about the five kingdoms. They will soon

TEAM INFINITY NEWS
In ELA we continue to use reading strategies including
determining point of view, as well as breaking down longer
passages to more closely examine them. We are also
beginning a persuasive writing unit and have already
written a persuasive letter to Samuel Adams from the point
of view of a colonist who wants to join the Sons of Liberty.
We will be doing a close reading of the Declaration of
Independence and writing our own declarations using
persuasive writing techniques. Students are also continuing
to read their self-selected novels.
In Social Studies we have been learning all about the
causes of the American Revolution and the Revolutionary
War. Students have been introduced to topics such as
protesting, the Sons and Daughters of Liberty and the
Boston Massacre. We have now made our way to the war
and have experienced the battles of Lexington and
Concord, Bunker Hill and the Crossing of the
Delaware. The students have also analyzed historical
documents such as Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" and
the Declaration of Independence.
Mr. Piede wants to remind students to check their grades
every weekend as they are updated Friday afternoons and
posted in his classroom for Monday's classes to see how
they're doing (and don't forget, parents can check this
Our team is very excited to be taking a field trip with the
entire seventh grade to Shea’s to see “Rock the Presidents”.
We are very lucky to be going on such a great trip, and
with the support of our schools’ PTA we are able to make a
day out it and also go out to lunch at Ilio DiPaolo’s. Our
team has been preparing for the trip by learning proper
theater and dining etiquette. We are very excited to
represent Lake Shore Middle School in the community!
In Math class we are beginning to work with threedimensional
figures. Students will investigate the
difference between volume and surface area, and use
formulas to find these values for pyramids, prisms and
cylinders. The students completed a project to create these
items from nets, so that they are able use the models to
support their learning. Our next unit of study will include
probability and statistics.
In Mr. Piede's science 7 classes we just finished our
Genetics unit. We talked about how our families get our
genes, and why we look like our parents (some kids didn't
want to comment on this). And we also practiced
predicting results of a genetic cross using a Punnett
Square. Evolution is next, so we will look at how the
organisms of the world have changed, from dinosaurs to
humans. We also will be studying Mr. Piede's favorite
scientist Charles Darwin and his work dating back to the
Galapagos Islands. Be sure to ask your son or daughter if
their moth survived in the moth lab!
Accelerated science completed weather recently and are
next studying earth's surface and how it changes. Erosion,
abrasion, and making contour maps are just some of the
topics...and eventually discussing the student favorite

TEAM SPIRIT NEWS
Happy New Year from Team Spirit! The team has a lot to
look forward to as we start the year. The 7 th grade students
have their fieldtrip to Shea’s and Ilio DiPaolo’s coming up
on February 5 th . It should be a great time for all of the 7 th
grade students in the building. 8 th grade students will be
taking a couple small trips to the High School over the next
few weeks. They will be going over to get a sneak peak of
this year’s musical at the end of the month. In February
they will head over again to learn about what next year will
be like at the High School for them. They will learn about
the different classes and opportunities that the High School
holds. Team Spirit is off to a busy start in 2013!
In 7 th and 8 th grade English classes, students finished
reading their (assigned) novels and wrote an expository
essay about characterization. We’ve been learning new
word parts and vocabulary every week, and one of the
students’ favorites is: bibliokleptomaniac (a book thief)!
Recently, students listened in on the librarian’s book talk
and were able to select a book to read for an independent
reading unit. They’ve been independently reading in class
and at home and are responsible for completing a book
project that will be due in February. After they’ve finished
reading their first chosen book, their task is to choose a
second book to read; some students have already read more
than one book! It has been very refreshing to observe
students reading for pleasure and to listen to their
excitement as they tell me what’s happening in their
stories. Soon, they will be conferencing with me and
speaking about their books in front of the class.
8 th grade science classes have been on the move. They
have been learning about motion, forces, and energy. They
have dropped eggs using various size parachutes to see the
effect size has on air resistance. None of the eggs survived
the drop, but everyone had fun hypothesizing which
parachute might save the egg. Before their current unit the
8 th graders completed a unit on Earth that included learning
about rocks and minerals. After they finish the motion
unit, the students will be moving on to electricity and
7th grade social studies classes have been learning about
the American Revolution. We have been researching
information on the Boston Tea Party and minutemen. The
seventh grade enjoyed learning the Shot Heard Around the
World song and reading plays on the Midnight ride. We
have charted, made maps and created Venn diagrams about
the battles and causes of the American Revolution.
8th grade social studies students have been learning about
the United States growing as a world power. We enjoyed
reading stories about the Spanish American War and
building the Panama Canal. We have reenacted events
from canal building and learned of the hardship that went
with this engineering project. Finally, we learned what is
meant by speak softly but carry a big stick.
In 7 th grade science classes the students have completed
units on cells, genetics, and evolution. They modeled
natural selection by making moths that blended in with
their surroundings, in hopes that they would survive.
Many moths survived the attack of hungry birds that came
looking for them and they are still hanging around the
classroom. Currently, the students are learning all about
chemistry, they love the chemistry songs that help them
remember details of the unit.
TEAM MAHALO NEWS
TEAM MALU NEWS
Team Mahalo students continue to work hard this year and
show many successes. It is the midpoint of the school year
so, it would be a good time to evaluate and replace general
school supplies such as pencils, paper, and binders.
In March many students will be participating in Bald For
Bucks. This program started by Anthony George, a Social
Studies teacher at the High School, raises money for
Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Please consider allowing
your child to participate in this very important endeavor.
Team Mahalo students will be studying the following over
the next several weeks:
Math: Coordinate Planes with integers and reflections,
absolute value, expressions, equations, functions and
Science: Eleven systems of the body
ELA: Continue to prepare for the state assessment by
practicing reading, and paired writing.
Social Studies: Ancient China
Reading: Focusing on science fiction and fantasy
Team Mahalo students continue to work hard this year and
show many successes. It is the midpoint of the school year
In Reading we just wrapped up a unit on poetry. The
students worked hard writing and reciting their own poems
to the class, as well as reading some well-known poems by
famous poets. We also completed our second book talk for
the year. Students read biographies or autobiographies and
did a wonderful job presenting what they learned to the
class. We all learned a lot about a wide variety of famous
people in history and today. In the upcoming weeks we
will be doing another DIBELS assessment and will be
starting a new novel. I hope the students are continuing to
read to meet their 25 book and genre requirements for the
year. Check your child's progress at home. They all have a
chart where they should be logging their books.
Remember, "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the
body." -Joseph Addison.
In Science we have started our Human Body
Unit. Students will be learning about all of the systems of
the body. Doing hands on activities to reinforce what is
learned in class.
In Social Studies we are nearing the end of our Ancient
Egypt unit. The students have been actively involved in
close reads using passages titled The Mummy's Curse and
Tutankhamen's Curse. They have also learned about
Egyptian gods and goddesses, the importance of the Nile
River, hieroglyphics, and the role of the pharaoh. One of
the students' favorite topics is mummification and the
afterlife. We should be ending this unit with the building
of the pyramids and their significance to Egyptian society.
Math students have been learning about algebra
expressions and solving questions using order of
operations. Also, students will be learning about properties
and will solve problems that contain variables.
Students in Mrs. Conrad's English Language Arts classes
finished a unit on figurative language. Students learned
about different literary devices through song. Currently the
students are preparing for the New York State English
Language Arts Exam by brushing up on their reading
skills. Through centers and group work the students have
mastered main idea, making inferences, sequencing,
context clues, author's purpose, and figurative
language. The students have also been working hard on
short responses and essay writing.
Make it Clear to Your Child That You Value Honesty
Being honest is the foundation of good character. You can’t be a person of character if you lie, present a false image to
others, or go back on your word. Practice honesty with your child and stress its’ importance. When your child asks for
a reason to be honest, try these:
Honest people have self-respect. They know who they are and they never have to worry about being caught in a
Honest people have the respect of others. Family members, teachers, and friends respect honest people because
they can count on them.
“Honesty is the best policy” is more than just a saying. Being honest will keep your preteen out of trouble.
Honesty encourages another good quality – responsibility. Honest people admit their mistakes and try to fix
Honesty will earn your child more freedom. If you can trust your child, you won’t always be looking over their
shoulder. You may also grant them privileges. Teachers also tend to give more freedom to students they trust.
Parent Verification Forms:
Parents are reminded of the importance of updating and returning the Parent Verification Update
Forms to the Middle School Main Office as soon as possible. These forms are critical if there is
some type of emergency, and for those times when someone other than you needs to pick your child
up at school.
Students cannot be released to adults who are not listed on the verification update form.
Your understanding and cooperation with this is appreciated.
Updates from the Technology Room
As we enter the second half of the school year the men in the technology wing have been busy creating and
innovating new projects! The technology team has been very excited with the effort and final products that have
been turned out by our very own middle school students!
Updates from 6 th grade Technology:
The newest member of the Technology team, Mr. Linn has been hard at work innovating the 6 th grade curriculum!
The 6 th graders have been given the task of creating an egg crash vehicle that can withstand a drop from
approximately 8 feet down a ramp, to an inclined ramp, to ultimately a 4 foot vertical drop to the ground. Check out
Mr. Linn's website to see the footage captured by a GoPro point of view video camera! Along with the egg crash
vehicles students have been constructing and testing truss bridges, one of the most recent bridges held upwards to 35
Updates from 7 th grade Technology:
Mr. Linn, Mr. Gardner, and Mr. Seivert have completed their technical drawing unit and holiday projects where
students designed and created custom ornaments for someone special during the holiday season. At this point
students are beginning units in Biotechnology, Communications and a new home construction unit where students
are building scale frame homes, measure twice and cut once!
Updates from 8 th Grade Technology:
Mr. Linn, Mr. Seivert and Mr. Saramak are now finishing up the second run of 8 th grade Technology. This year new
content was added focusing on career awareness and giving back. During quarter 1 students had the opportunity to
welcome guests from MOOG Corporation during their engineering design unit. Keith Wojciechowski, engineering
technician within the aircraft division, and Nick Geile, an engineer within the space and defense division, came to
Lake Shore in mid October to talk to our 8 th technology students about the role of education in their careers. The
students were prepared with questions to ask the two after their presentation and were extremely excited about the
visit; check out Mr. Saramak's website for pictures!
Along with career awareness student's had the heart-warming opportunity to give back. After the tragic events in
Newtown, CT 8 th grade students created 26 memorial LED lighted “Twisted Tree” projects, which were sent to
Newtown. Students worked tirelessly to complete the projects in only 3 days. Students worked as part of a
manufacturing system to create needed sub assemblies to get the project done by the deadline. The beautiful work
done by the students was a representation of the type of school community we have here at Lake Shore!
TEAM VALOR NEWS
Space Day for Team Valor
On Tuesday, January 22, students on Team Valor were visited by MOOG Aerospace Engineers. This presentation
took place after a unit of study on Astronomy in Mrs. Kerl's science class. Mr. Peter Kerl and Mr. Robert Bauer,
Aeronautical Engineers from MOOG Inc. came to the middle school and presented on the past, present, and future
plans for our space program. Students learned about the Mars Lander Curiosity that landed on the surface of Mars
this past August, the now retired Space Shuttle, and the next generation of rockets. The Students were also treated
to an exciting cryogenic demonstration using liquid nitrogen to show how components that will be used in space
react to extreme cold. It was an exciting and very valuable learning experience for all who participated. We think
we may have inspired some future engineers and astronauts. Just think you might see one of our Lake Shore
graduates going to the Moon then Mars and beyond!
