6th grade students came together to show off their Ancient Rome projects to the Millis Middle School community. Mrs. Rao is very proud of all of their hard work!
Mr. Max Michelson, Holocaust Survivor, shared his powerful and riveting story with 7th and 8th grade students on May 30th. The audience was mesmerized as Mr. Michelson recalled his 4 years living in a ghetto and concentration camps as a teenager. Mr. Michelson has also written a book, City of Life, City of Death: Memories of RIga, and he is a retired engineer who lives in Newton. Cameron Tessler initiated Mr. Michelson's visit and his grandmother, Mrs. Gloria Tessler, provided his transporation to and from Millis.

Grade 8 just culminated their study of Medieval Times by completing some fabulous Medieval Projects. Students completed a variety of different projects. These included models of castles, cathedrals and manors to posterboards on Chivalry as well as making a review on a booked on Medieval Life called, "Catherine Called Birdie".
Thanks to everyone that supported our Coats for Kids Coat Drive. Check out some pictures from our Pizza Party Celebration. The students had a pizza "snack" sponsored by Anton's Cleaners on Friday. It was a great way to finish out the week. Thank you to Anton's Cleaners, Millis House of Pizza and Poland Spring Water.

Our friends, Marie and Gregor, are hanging out near the middle school office this month. Each of our science teachers are taking turns setting up the display to let the students know what is going on their classrooms during the school year. All the students can walk by the office and check out the display. Marie and Gregor are getting the students excited about science.
