Madame Barnum's French Class

This Week in Madame Barnum's 7th & 8th Grade Classes

Students took part in a 'Blind Taste Test' in which they had to be the first to identify the food in French, using their vocabulary words . . . ALL French students learned about the difference between American chocolate and Belgian chocolate in their classes this week, so, every student took part in the Chocolate Taste Test to see if they could tell the difference between the two different chocolates . . .

Madame Barnum said it was " a Fun Day!!"

Congratulations to ALL 6th Grade Students

The students this year have accomplished so much, there were 81 students on the Merit or Honor Roll this past term, that is a very large group. Mrs. Floyd mentioned that she is very fond of this new group of Argos as did other teachers... There is nothing better than happy & kind & hard working students to make happy teachers, the perfect match!

Mykel, who is on the Litchfield Wresting Team, is the Akron Public School's Athlete of the Month!
So wonderful to see an Argo recognized for their hard work, we're proud, proud, proud of him.

Litchfield Middle School Ambassadors

Litchfield Middle School

. . . and here are your Litchfield Ambassadors!

When Mrs. Floyd joined the Litchfield family she started something new, Student Ambassadors. These students get an opportunity to step out of their everyday roles as 'students' as they stand with Mrs. Floyd and other staff members helping with many things throughout the school year.
examples: Argo New Student Orientation, visiting elementary schools with Mrs. Floyd to share their LMS experiences and much much more.

Mrs. Nickras - Teacher of Music, Choir Director, Drama Club Coordinator


for Litchfield Middle School’s DRAMA CLUB presentation of:
🌏 👽 No Signs of Intelligent Life 👽 🌏
“If you think you’ve suffered too many awkward moments or been in the dark in conversations, just think how poor, innocent aliens feel! Hungry to fit in, (a little too hungry at times!) they do and say things that we humans aren't allowed to.
Join in the laughter as these extraterrestrials meet all kinds of humans. Will these hapless aliens be able to figure out the daily human rituals? The aliens have the knowledge to increase food production, create alternative energies, and achieve world peace. Are Earthlings the intelligent life they seek to bestow these gifts? More important, could Earthlings help the aliens get home again?!”

Our Drama Club will present:
"Where There's A Will, There's A Murder"

When ten distant relatives learn that each of them is about to inherit a million dollars, wheels begin to turn and plots hatch. If someone doesn't make it through the stormy weekend ahead, their share will be divided equally among the others. It doesn't take a mathematical genius to figure out that less is more. As bodies pile up, the laughs come fast and furiously in this ‘whodunnit’ that proves that Where There’s a Will, There’s a Murder.

This is a play about not being in a play, ironically expressed through a hilarious series of monologues, duets, and ensemble scenes.
