We are over halfway through the first quarter. All students have recently turned in final draft writing assignments. 9th graders are presenting an brief oral presentation based on one of their essays this week, on Thursday, Oct. 11. They will present during their class time, starting either at 8:20 or 11:20. Parents and guardians will be emailed a specific time and invitation. We love an audience, so please join us.
10th graders are reading the book Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck. We are having fascinating conversations about this book. Be sure to talk to your student about their thoughts on this book. 10th graders will also take the PSAT test this week starting at 8:30. this test gives them practice for the SAT, as well as possibly qualifies them for the National Merit Scholarship program. Students were given test info and practice materials in class last week and we have been working on them in class to prepare. The test is for all 10th graders and will run from 8:30 – 12:30 on Wed., Oct. 10.
