Casa De Nuñez- House Class


Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”
~Yehuda Berg


The motto of Nuñez House this year will be SPEAK LIFE! We will be focusing on the power of our words and how they can affect the world around us. We will explore the words we are exposed to daily and how we feel they change our views. This will be a great adventure! 

7th grade Life Science- Organ Systems

All living organisms on Earth are divided into cells. 7th graders will be looking into the wondrous world of cells! The main concept of cell theory is that cells are the basic structural unit for all organisms. Cells are small compartments that hold the biological equipment necessary to keep an organism alive and successful. Living things may be single-celled or they may be very complex such as a human being. 

6th Grade Ancient History- Paleolithic Era

Students will begin the year by exploring the theories on the Origin of Humans. We will look into understanding the complex path of adaptation that lead to modern human life. We will begin by looking at the first Hominid australopithecus afarensis, Lucy, and chart human development from there. So much to explore in history!


6th grade Earth Science- Our place in the Universe

Our universe is made up of more galaxies than we have a number to compare it to! Our galaxy is a small one with various stars and solar systems. We live in one of the small solar systems on the outer rim of our galaxy.  Students in the 6th grade will be exploring our place is this massive universe and seeing the magic of the galaxy!

Welcome to Mrs. Nunez's Classes

Students spend over seven hours a day inside the classroom learning. Homework for my classes will be types of work that should be done at home. Part of being college ready is knowing how to complete certain chores around the home as well as simple social interactions. I hope that parents/Guardians and students find enjoyment and connection with one another through this homework!
