French novelist Marcel Proust wrote that the “real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”. To that end, as your virtual voyage brings you from the ninth to tenth grade, think of what you have seen. Read. Witnessed. Solved. You will now be adding to that foundation of knowledge. You will embark once again on the second half of a global journey, learning how China influenced early Japanese and Korean civilizations, identify immigration and demographic changes in our shared world and travel The Silk Road.

You will enhance these studies with an emphasis on argument building and close reading. In English, you will become keenly acquainted with Shakespeare, major works of World Literature, and what it truly means to forge your own unique identity in an ever-changing world. You will write literature based essays and creative fiction, knowing that literature is a time capsule representative of the period in which it was created. In environmental science, you will integrate everything you learned in Living Environment into this vast and interdisciplinary study. This course incorporates learning about the earth and solving challenging problems of climate, weather and physical science.

You will continue to decipher formulas and properties of space and distance in one of the oldest branches of mathematics, Geometry. Finally, we will keep you moving in Physical Education and have you reading and expressing yourself in Spanish, a Romance Language that has nearly 500 million native speakers. We are thrilled behind measure to discover these new landscapes with you in this unprecedented time.

Welcome to tenth grade--watch this space.


"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

Emily Dickinson

PE March & April we will continue with looking into our diets. We are specifically looking into a calorie deficit, calorie surplus, or a maintenance calorie intake. We will be calculating our Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) to see how many calories are burned by just resting in the house. We will then specifically look at various exercises and exercise platforms that burn specific calorie amounts to aid in our nutrition/body transformation and/or maintenance. Finally we will determine which form of calories will work best for specific goals and needs. Carbohydrates, Protein and Fats will be recorded and altered to fit specific athletic/fitness needs. Fitness Videos, Nutritional videos/seminars through Youtube, cooking videos, meal preps will help guide and educate our student body in making healthier decisions. But most importantly this information will allow students to understand when they are choosing to eat outside the healthy lifestyle.
