Journeys School Eighth Grade Fire Awareness Fundraiser Takes Flight
Wednesday, February 8, 1:30-2:45 pm
Albertson's, Smith's, and Jackson Whole Grocer

On Wednesday, February 8, the seventh graders, led by the eighth grade capstone class,  will hold an event that supports both Teton Raptor Center and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS. The eighth grade class has worked for several weeks to make t-shirts to support Jackson Hole Fire/EMS and to educate our community about fire prevention. All t-shirt profits will benefit the Teton Raptor Center. The eighth grade class divided into five sub-committees to complete each component of this project. They created an event group, a t-shirt design group, a budget group, a public relations group and a marketing group. Please come and support their efforts to strengthen our community when they sell their t-shirts at Albertsons, Smith's and at the Jackson Whole Grocer between 1:30-2:45 pm on February 8.

Spanish Class Open Air Market
¿Cuánto cuesta la piña? La piña cuesta siete pesos. Students will simulate an open air market by bringing in goods that they can sell to classmates and other market goers. Students will create written advertisements that describe their product and its cost. That information will be used to help students buy and sell on market day. Market interactions require students to apply correct verb agreement and new vocabulary during improvised dialogues with their classmates. The exchange of play money allows students to practice saying numbers in Spanish. Help your students come to school prepared for market day by asking him/her about the requirements and due dates.
