The 2016-17 school year is off to a great start. Students are working hard in the classroom as we explore elements of nonfiction this first week of October. I'm pleased with the overall progress of the students in their results on the 8 parts of speech test and sentence diagramming quizzes two weeks ago. Parents and guardians of students are reminded to review the reassessment policy in my syllabus. Students scoring below 70% on either exam are eligible for reassessment during the current quarter. Please contact me if you have any questions concerning this. We began our first literature unit last week, focusing on the 5 Facts of Fiction. This entire fiction and nonfiction unit is centered upon the expert question, "How can I get ready for the future I want?" Students are and will explore ways in which they can begin to prepare NOW for the future they dream of.
Keep up the good work students!
