September News

It’s hard to believe, but we have already completed half of the first quarter.  Mid-quarter grades will be sent to parents through email this Thursday or Friday.  If the grades are not what you had hoped for, you still have time to turn things around and improve them before the end of the quarter.  The last day of the quarter will be October 14.

Hopefully, you are now aware of our testing schedule.  Students take their weekly tests on Friday.  These tests include spelling, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.  We also have a grammar quiz on Fridays. The only tests students are able to retake is the vocabulary test.  If students are not happy with their grade, they can write eight meaningful sentences to show me they understand the meaning of the words. This needs to be handed in on Friday.

We have a great group of readers in this class!  Students have been prepared and have seemed to enjoy our first couple of books!  Thursdays are the days the literature groups meet.  Students need to come to their literature group prepared.  This means they have read the required section of the book, they have their book with them, and they bring a prepared sheet to help them discuss the book with their peers.  If students are not prepared for literature groups, they can not get those points back.  They are allowed to turn in their sheet late to get points, but can not earn the discussion points.

Parent/Teacher conferences will be held on September 20 and 22.  You do not need an appointment.  Teachers will be in the 6B pod area, so you can easily meet with all your child’s core teachers.  The academic connection teachers will be in the cafeteria in alphabetical order.  Hope to see you then!
