7th Grade Combines Social Studies, Science and Art Concepts

The 7th grade students in Mrs. Rogney's World History class are wrapping up their unit on Ancient Greece.  Topics covered in the unit included geography, government, wars, and Athens vs. Sparta. Students were asked to combine content from all topics and create a shield that would represent themselves and their beliefs if they were to live during this era.  


The class also explored a new art technique called patina, that they could add to their shields.  Students used a small piece of copper to create a crest that would be displayed on their finished piece.  Liver of Sulfur was then used on the copper to help iodize it and create this cool old look.  The students were excited to try something new and their finished pieces turned out fantastic. Middle School Social Studies

Reality Store

Reality Store

On March 13th, Spencer 8th grade students were shocked with a dose of reality.

The Reality Store is an interactive financial simulation where middle school students learn how their education, life choices and finances are all interrelated and impact their future.  During this hands-on experience students are given a hypothetical family situation. Based on that information they make spending decisions for their household. Their goal was to balance a monthly budget which included paying taxes, saving/investing, health and car insurance costs, and paying monthly bills (such as rent, utilities, phone, cable, childcare, groceries, car, clothing, etc.). Balancing their budget wasn’t easy, especially with unexpected financial fates along the way.

Spencer 8th grade students definitely got a glimpse of the future.

Spencer Math Students Celebrate Pi Day

Math Students

The past couple weeks Spencer 7th graders have been examining the circumference and areas of circles. Therefore, it seemed fitting to celebrate something as infinite as the value of pi.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi is used in mathematics to represent a constant (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) which is approximately 3.14159. If you haven’t figured it out, Pi Day is observed on March 14 since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three digits of pi.

On this special day the 7th graders became a little “irrational” when sharing their "Pi" projects. They also listened to some "Pi" tunes and played "Pi" cards, but the best part was eating some delicious "Pi" food.‚Äč- Submitted by Mrs. Barton

6th Grade Music

For the first time this school year, the 6th Grade students at Spencer Middle School are following a survey rotation like 7th and 8th grade students have for years. Currently in music class with Mr. Dillenburg, 6th graders are working on "Ukulele Karate" where they learn new chords and strumming patterns on the ukulele as they advance from belt to belt. Ukulele is new to the music curriculum this year, and this group of kids is lighting it up!

Nine Middle School Students Earn College Tuition Rewards

Ecology Students


Some Spencer Middle School students (and their parents) have reason to be excited about earning tuition rewards points towards college tuition.  The students earned their rewards while selling items for the fall 2017 Forest Ecology Fundraiser, which included magazines and many other items.  Over 350 private colleges and universities participate in this program, and the Ecology Club plans to give students the opportunity to earn tuition rewards again with next year's fundraiser in support of our school forests.  The students who earned the tuition rewards shown in the picture (left to right) in the front are Kylie Egner, Laycee Glover, Tanner Hamer, Clayton Petras, & Mariah Seagren, and in the back are Ruby Semenchuk, Carson Schmidt, & Jordan Boe.  (Not shown is Jorie Meyer)  Submitted by Mr. Benton

Middle School Science


Middle school science students started off the school year by diving into the scientific method. This is a fundamental process taught in science but the benefits of teaching this process to students will go beyond their science classes.  The process teaches students to logically examine and analyze information he or she is receiving and then make a logical decision based off the information present.  Students in Mrs. Busse and Ms. Kundinger's science classes created towers out of cups and popsicle sticks to learn about the scientific method.  More images of student towers can be found on the Spencer Middle School Facebook page.
