Parent/Teacher Conferences are Coming!

Parent/Teacher conferences will be February 6 and 8 from 3:30 to 6:30.  In middle school, we encourage students to attend with their parents.  We hope to see you there!

Our poetry unit has started.  Each day students will write a new entry in their writer’s notebook.  They should attempt each type of poetry and date the entry.  If they are absent during the unit, it is the student’s responsibility to check with me or with a friend to find out what they missed.  The writer’s notebook will be checked the week of February 12- 16.  The students will publish their favorite 7 poems into a poetry book that will be due February 19.

We had several impressive poems submitted to be considered for our Martin Luther King Jr. celebration to be held on January 25.  This all school assembly remembers the great work of Martin Luther King Jr. and honors Zainab Al Baaj for her current work in our community.  A team of teachers reviewed the poems and selected poems by  Faith Peterson, Tristan McGill, Addi Palmer, and Kate Roesch.  Congratulations to these talented writers on being selected!

Literature groups meet on Thursday.  The morning class is reading Surviving Antarctica, and the afternoon group is reading Counting by 7s.  Students should bring their literature book and a thinkmark to literature groups.

Spelling, vocabulary, and reading comprehension tests continue to be on Fridays.

I hope you’re keeping warm on these cold January days!
