Feminism. Some people might think that’s an ugly word. The actual meaning of feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

But how could something so commonly approved of have such a bad reputation?

The seventh-graders are performing the brine shrimp experiment with Ms. Cleckler, Mrs. Winemiller, or Mr. Dandridge next week. Students will be observing the eggs of brine shrimp from hatchlings to late adults. This assessment should help students understand what variables exist in a science experiment.

Brine shrimp are an aquatic species that can consume algae and some human foods. They are commonly called sea monkeys, which originates from the shape of their tail. The brine shrimp make a fascinating experiment for both children and adults. More…

Welcome back, students and parents! Back to school night is on Wednesday, September 14th. While students are not encouraged to attend, at least one parent should come.

Teachers will be walking parents through each child’s class showing what will be learned this year.

Back to school night will start at 5:30 in the MPR with a 15 minute PTSA meeting. After, parents will follow their child’s schedule from 6:05 to about 7:50. There is one important exception to the schedule; PE class will be held in the MPR.

Hopefully, each child has given his or her parents the filled out schedule to follow. These were assigned in homeroom last week.

Welcome back to, and welcome to, Stacey Middle School.
