ELA: Weeks of October 2 and 9.
October 2 - dress code is back in effect. ALL students must wear their badges. It is also a spirit shirt day.
October 3 and 5 - Tutorials are back! I have been available but students had to make arrangements. This week, bus transportation will be provided. They end at 4:10.
October 9 is set aside for parent conferences. I emailed several parents requesting one, as well as, made a notation on your student's report card. I look forward to meeting with you and your student to find out how we can all ensure their success.
October 13: Progress report cut off - students must have taken their vocabulary test. Also, it's a good idea for them to have half their goal to ensure success and lessen their stress. No one likes reading several books and hundreds of pages in a week! It is also our PINK pep rally.
This next week we will be analyzing the drama of "Diary of Anne Frank". They will analyze it and take a test over it.
Then, the students will take a unit one test over fiction and drama. Students will analyze and correct mistakes in class to increase their grade. As a group, this allows them to understand their mistakes and me to help them. It also give students an opportunity to help one another understand.
