We are half way through the first quarter of the year. All students should be reading their own book at home (or in study hall) for an in-class book report on October 7. Reading log should be completed 5 nights per week for a minimum of 20 minutes per night.
This week, ninth graders are organizing, drafting, revising and editing their reflective essays. They are also reviewing sentence basics and will have a quiz on September 18. They should have asked someone close to them to write their biography, which is due in class on Sept. 30.
Tenth graders are reading Mindset. They are having deep discussions on how effort and challenges affects them and how they learn from failures. They will have a comprehension quiz this week on their reading.
