CMS CELEBRATES HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
The 6th grade Barracuda Team celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month on Friday, September 12th. Teachers taught curriculum goals with a focus on Hispanic culture. During Language Arts, students participated in small group non-fiction readings focused on the Aztec and Inca culture. Students were also challenged to follow recipes to create their own salsa, which they were able to eat and enjoy. During Math, students were completing math problems using Mayan symbols and graphing points on a grid to create Mayan ruins. Social Studies focused on using longitude and latitude to complete a scavenger hunt in Central America. In Science, students researched animals and insects of the rain forest and created cuts out to build a classroom rainforest. 
BETA CLUB DONATES FOOD FOR AFRICA
The Chatham Middle Beta Club donated much needed food and powdered milk to help relief efforts in Africa. The Beta Club delivered 20 bags of rice, 27 bags of pinto beans, 10 cans of powdered milk, and 3 containers of oats to Goldston United Methodist Church, which delivered the donations to help the food shortage caused by the Ebola crisis. This was a great opportunity for our Beta Club to get involved in a community service project and help make a difference in a world crisis.
