School Transportation Announcement

School Bus

IMPORTANT: Transportation Applications were mailed to each student’s family on July 31. The form must be filled out and returned by AUGUST 14th EVEN IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO HAVE YOUR CHILD RIDE THE BUS! Forms received after August 14 will be processed the first week of school which means those students will be allowed to begin riding the bus the SECOND week of school. Understand that a single late arrival may mean large changes to a school bus route and families already knowing their pick up time may all have to be contacted with new times as well as mapping and other related changes required. Your cooperation in meeting the August 14 deadline truly is crucial to our staff creating routes on time for you.

With all the changes going on, your information is critical to the development of school bus routes, timing of routes, and efficient routes. If you have NOT received a Transportation Application in the mail, please contact Jon Burnett at Burnett Transit or the school immediately! Thanks for your help as we work to create a safe, healthy, and efficient bus route for each of your families. Jon Burnett / 715-659-4391

Eighth Grade Students Face "Reality"

Savings & charityReality Store

This years Reality Store was yet again a success and a challenge for many 8th grade students. When calculating their monthly budgets, students were quick to realize there are many different expenses that add up quickly. Many students fell into debt and had to either make sacrifices, find assistance, or go and get a part time job, which is reality for many families in our community. It was also nice to hear a couple of students, who were a little more fortunate, offer to help some of those who were not. Even though that was not an option, it was nice to hear our students offering to give back to our community. Thank you to our surrounding area schools for joining us, Karen Isaacson from Marshfield Chamber of Commerce, and the local volunteers for your continued support to help Spencer students become career ready.

8th Graders Learn About Chemical Reactions

Students watch chemical reactions

Spencer 8th grade science classes have been learning about physical and chemical reactions. We have completed many labs from combining baking soda with vinegar to test how temperature impacts glow sticks. But the most exciting lab by far was Elephant’s Toothpaste.

This experiment is called Elephant’s Toothpaste because the chemical reaction produces a large foamy mess that looks like toothpaste squirting out of a tube. The foam is actually filled with oxygen that came from the hydrogen peroxide. We used yeast as a catalyst to remove the oxygen and to increase the reaction rate.  The expressions on the student’s faces were priceless as the thick foam oozed or shot out of the bottle!

Middle School Phy Ed

Spring is here, and with the warm weather the Middle School Physical Education program is heating up. Students have spent the winter months performing strength and conditioning activities to enhance strength, build flexibility, and help their overall fitness levels. Along the way, students have also learned many new games and activities. The Middle School students are all excited to take their new skills to outdoor activities as we near the end of the school year and into the summer. GO ROCKETS- Submitted by Mr. Thomas

8th Grade FACE Sewing Projects

Emojis

The 8th grade students in Ms. Polka’s FACE class completed their sewing unit by making emoji pillows. Students learned about sewing safety, identifying tools and equipment, hand sewing, and constructing a pillow. Each student selected their own emoji and created a pattern to cut out their fabric. Students then sewed their pillows by hand. They began by assembling facial features, sewing the fabric with right sides together, stuffing the pillow, and finishing it with some more hand sewing. The finished product was a 12 inch pillow. Students learned consistency, time, and patience were important during this process. They all enjoyed this experience as they  wanted to make a second one! - Submitted by Ms. Polka

Middle School Language Arts is “In Sync” with Today’s Learners

Middle School ELA

 

Three years ago Spencer Middle School adopted a new English Language Arts curriculum called StudySync.  This curriculum was one of the first fully electronic programs used in our district. After also adopting one-to-one student Chromebooks last year, the curriculum started to become a seamless way to complete reading, writing, speaking, and listening assignments that students truly enjoy.  The classroom looks very different at times compared to the traditional teaching of the past which included very large reading anthologies and a good number of supplemental workbooks and novels. Now, everything the students need is available in a virtual and weightless space--the Chromebook.  Students also don’t have to remember to bring homework to class (nor can one say they forgot it) because it is nearly always stored in a virtual space! Interactive elements like videos, virtual flashcards, and annotation storage make the program both convenient and thorough to a point that we could never have achieved in a 42-minute class period in the past.  The students are benefiting greatly and they are engaging more because they like the platform of the class. It is as second-nature for a student today to hear “log in” as to the past when a teacher said “turn to page…” - Submitted by Mrs. Much

Middle School Girls Attend UWSP STEM Career Exploration Day

UWSP STEM

The University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point sponsors three STEM (Science, Engineering, Math, and Technology) events for junior high students each year. Sponsored by the Spencer Science Club, four girls from Spencer Middle School attended a day designed for girls to explore STEM careers on Friday, February 23. This one-day conference is designed to get them fired up and excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  The event showcased STEM career professionals from throughout Wisconsin and faculty from UW-System. The girls engaged in hands-on workshops and learned the many career paths available with an education in STEM.- Submitted by Mrs. Roehrborn

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

Cupcake Wars

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.​- Submitted by Mrs. Barton

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.

STEAM Comes to SMS

 

STEAM

All kids are naturally inquisitive and every classroom should be filled with creativity and wonder. In order to unleash the creative potential in all students, Spencer Middle School is implementing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) courses this year in the 7th and 8th grades. 

In the next couple months, 8th-graders will be creating podcasts. Podcasts are kind of like a radio show in your pocket. The goal is for students to gather as much information as possible so they can produce a podcast that you, the listener, would like to hear.  Launching their final product out to the real world can be scary, but also rewarding. 

The second half of the year, robotics will come to life for the 8th graders. Robots are programmable machines or gadgets that can perform a range of tasks by executing input commands. The goal is for the students to learn the principles of design, construction, and programming of robots.

Adding Minutes to the Day

This crazy winter has caused us to have 6 snow days already. Two days are built into our calendar, this leaves 4 to be made up. Please note the following changes:
*School day will be lengthened starting Monday, Feb. 18, this will make up 2 of the days. Middle and High school hours will be 8:07-3:22 and elementary will be 8:10-3:15. Buses will arrive 5 minutes earlier with this new schedule. 
*Students WILL be in school on March 8
*Last day for students will be in JUNE 7
