7th Graders visit to Country View Assisted Living

7th grade students in Mrs. Dusold’s Language Arts Class at Peterstown Middle School recently finished the novel Tuesdays with Morrie written by Mitch Albom. The story is about a young student and his dying professor who spend Tuesdays together discussing life lessons. Throughout the novel, students have completed activities that correlate with the life lessons Morrie talked about in the story. One of the lessons revolves around about devoting yourself to your community and the importance of spending time with others when you are able.

Several students at PMS were chosen to visit Country View Assisted Living to spend time with a resident. The students were given interview questions and spent the afternoon discussing different topics with that person. They were able to provide company to a resident while learning stories about their life. The students really enjoyed the trip. There were tears and laughter as the students listened to the stories of someone they have never met. The students learned many valuable lessons while reading this novel, one of the most important was being kind to others and showing them you care. The students on the trip were respectful and attentive while conducting their interviews.

PMS students and teachers would like to thank Country View Assisted Living for allowing us to visit. We had a great time and cannot wait to come back!

Lots of art decorates our main hall!




The Annual Craft Show, sponsored by the Art Department, was held on December 9.  Thanks to all of the participating vendors and shoppers who helped make this a success.
