Pi Day!

March 14 marks Pi Day, an annual celebration of the mathematical sign pi. Founded in 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw, March 14 was selected because the numerical date (3.14) represents the first three digits of pi, and it also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday—the perfect pi-incidence.

LaSalle II Middle School math students were busy this March celebrating Pi Week! During Pi Week, math students were able to make discoveries related to the extraordinary number pi (π)! Students participated in the following activities: decorating Pi Day t-shirts that they wore on Pi Day (3/14), watching videos about Pi, completing a discovery activity involving circles, drawing a Pi City skyline, completing a creative research project about Pi facts, working on a collaborative Pi poster in small groups, and much more! We even had a digit competition where the student in each class who memorized the most digits of pi went home with a apple PIE!

New ELA Curriclum in Middle School

Sixth and Seventh grade students just completed the first section of their new curriculum, culminated with the writing of a nonfiction narrative essay!

Sixth grade answered the following prompt: “When did you have to use your imagination to find another way to do something?” The seventh grade answered the prompt: “What unexpected event shows how a person can influence someone from a different generation?”

Our scholars have now transitioned into small group learning where they are working in groups of three or four to complete tasks associated with essential questions that are driving our learning.

As the second quarter continues, students will also create media presentations and select online texts to read and analyze that support our essential questions: “What are some of the challenges and triumphs of growing up?” (6th) and “What can one generation learn from another?” (7th)

CPS Volunteer Policy

We love our volunteers at LaSalle II and our school would just not be the same without you! We appreciate the time and support that all of you give to LaSalle II and we want you to be able to continue as a volunteer this school year. As we have mentioned, CPS has a new volunteer application. If you plan on volunteering at the school this school year (chaperone a field trip, volunteer at an event, volunteer in a classroom, etc) you must complete the CPS volunteer application online. It takes less than 5 minutes!

 

Step 1:
Visit cpsvolunteers.org and click the “Complete a Volunteer Application” button.

 

Step 2:
Fill out the application. Parents will be asked if they are applying as a Level I or Level II volunteer. Most LaSalle II parents will be Level II volunteers.

 

Step 3:
You will receive a confirmation email that CPS received your application.

 

Step 4:
Bring your drivers license or state issued ID to the Main Office so that the office staff can make a copy. Once this step is completed, we can approve you as a volunteer.

 

We are asking all parents (and caregivers if they plan on volunteering) to complete this process so you can be ready should a volunteer opportunity arise. Thank you for your participation in this process and thank you for helping LaSalle II!
