    Fall Spirit Days

    SUBJECT FOCUS 

    ELA

    Grade 6

    In November, 6th graders will continue with our first unit, "Discover Your Voice." They will use annotating skills, small group discussion, and inferencing to analyze how a variety of texts address the essential question: What are the ways you can make yourself heard? The texts we will be reading for Unit 1 include Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woods, "OMG! Not Another Selfie",  and "What's So Funny, Mr. Sceizka?" by Jon Sceizka. Students will engage in small group discussions to annotate and analyze these texts for the author's purpose and central idea. In October, the sixth graders made literacy goals based on their Beginning-of-Year iReady scores. Through the next few months, they will be working towards these literacy goals in ELA and core foundations.  

    Grade 7 

    The 7th grade ELA team is continuing to explore the first unit of HMH called "Reality Check." Students will use different types of texts to explore the author's purpose, main idea, and many other literary elements, all while working to answer the question, "What can blur the lines of what is real and what isn't?" Students will be reading a variety of texts to explore this question, including the article "Not Everything as It Seems" by Arnetta Carter.

     

    Grade 8 

    In the month of November, all ELA students will be accessing the recently acquired Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Curriculum. One of the main goals of the ELA Department is to teach at least three units from the HMH Curriculum over the course of this academic year. HMH provides teachers with a tool for systematic and explicit instruction through a rich and diverse platform that aims to build and improve the foundational skills students need to be successful across all disciplines. HMH's platform also supports differentiation and the continued practice of foundational skills. 

      

    The 8th grade ELA students will commence the HMH Curriculum with a Technology Unit - "Gadgets and Glitches" with the essential question: "Does Technology improve or control our lives?"  We will read several short stories, along with the anchor text that aligns with the unit to delve into the implications of the increased use of technology and the dependence it causes on us as a society.  Following the sequence of the HMH learning model: Unit Opener, Analyze and Apply, Collaborate and Compare, Reader's Choice and End of Unit Activities; students will closely examine the effects of our augmented reliance on technology.  During the unit, students will have the opportunity to analyze different texts, collaborate with each other and participate in rich discussion to share and build upon their classmates’ ideas.  Through the use of HMH and Google Drive, students will further exchange ideas and support each other and practice the citing of logical text-based evidence in support of their claims. This will be evidenced in their culminating assignment which will be an expository essay on this topic.

    SPEECH

    On October 27, 2022, Mrs. Loew and Mrs. Rothbort took the 8th grade Speech students took a walking trip to Forest Hills High School for a guided tour. The special part of this trip was, the tour guides were former Sage speech students who are now juniors and seniors at FHHS. Our Sage students were given a guided tour of the building as well as a presentation by the FHHS speech students about their school.  We then had a question-and-answer session where many interesting and pertinent questions were asked by our 8th graders and answered by the high school students. This is also one of our students’ speech goals, asking and answering WH questions for clarification and information.

    We had a great time and the students got to see a side of FHHS that most do not get to see.  We will culminate this trip by writing thank you letters to our wonderful student tour guides at the high school.  We look forward to taking next years’ 8th graders on this fabulous annual trip next year.

    Message from Dean Alban

     

    We had a very successful Halloween celebration at Sage. The students followed the guidelines and had a great time displaying their costumes.

     

    Parents: Please remind your child of the following:

    1. Remind your child to bring their student IDs every morning. This helps during morning entry. If your child does not have one, please tell them to visit with Ms. Briana during their lunch period. She will make them one and provide them with lanyards.
    2. Remind your child to always walk on the right side in the hallways and staircases
    3. Remind your child to always be kind and respectful towards their classmates. This will go a very long way! 

     

    Beginning of MP2, there will be an assembly for all students to review guidelines and policies set forth at the beginning of the school year, and to look forward to events that will take place during the next couple of months. 

     

    Message from Guidance Counselor 

    Hello my 6th graders!

    I had the pleasure to meet some of you; keep up the good work. You all have been doing a great job adjusting to middle school.  Most of you  mentioned you like how you get to be more independent, and get to have different teachers compared to Elementary. This is your third month in middle school, you all should feel proud of yourselves.

    My office is a safe space where you can discuss your academic and social concerns. I am here to listen and offer solutions.

    NOTE: We’re not changing anymore talents; it will mix up the grades from each teacher. We try our best  to offer your first or second choice; you will be able to have different talents the following school year.

    All the best,

    Ms. Del Rio (Room 140B)

  • Give the Gift of Education #GivingTuesday - JHS190 PTA

    Last day to donate!! 12/6  - http://go.rallyup.com/givingtuesdayjhs190

     

    The PTA Executive Board hopes everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
    For many of us, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the "unofficial" start of the holiday season. This year, let's
    make Giving Tuesday the official start of the gift-giving season!
    Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together in unity. Generosity is what
    unites people of all races, creeds and political views around the world. Generosity gives everyone the power to
    make a positive change in the lives of others and is a core value that anyone can act upon. We are proud to be
    part of this global celebration of generosity and kindness.
    You can make a difference in your child's education! From last Tuesday, November 29 through next Tuesday,
    December 6, you can help raise funds by contributing to the Russell Sage PTA's Call to Make a Difference
    campaign.
    You can make your donations by envelope, check or through the following link:
    http://go.rallyup.com/givingtuesdayjhs190
    Our goal is to raise $3,000 or more for programs and activities for the Russell Sage community; all donations of
    any amount will make an impact!
    Thank you for your generosity!!
    Together we can make a difference,

    Hello my 6th graders!

    I had the pleasure to meet some of you; keep up the good work. You all have been doing a great job adjusting to middle school.  Most of you  mentioned you like how you get to be more independent, and get to have different teachers compared to Elementary. This is your third month in middle school, you all should feel proud of yourselves.

    My office is a safe space where you can discuss your academic and social concerns. I am here to listen and offer solutions.

    NOTE: We’re not changing anymore talents; it will mix up the grades from each teacher. We try our best  to offer your first or second choice; you will be able to have different talents the following school year.

     

    All the best,

     

    Ms. Del Rio (Room 140B)

  • Career Day 2022

    Every spring at Sage we facilitate a career day for our 8th graders. Without fail, it's always an exciting, meaningful and educational day. As we begin to plan for this year's event, we are looking for presenters. We love to have individuals from our greater school community share their stories, so If you, or someone you know, would be interested in participating we would greatly appreciate it. This year's event will once again be presented entirely on zoom and will be taking place on Tuesday, March 15.
