Hello Wildcat Families,

We are now finished with conferences and I hope that each of you have visited with your child’s teacher and learned more about our school and our clubs and programs.

This week is Red Ribbon Week and each day we have a different event that can be found on Griffin’s website. Please be sure to take a look so that your child can participate  in this Drug Free activity all week.

Our focus in Read 180 is to continue our reading and projects which were interrupted by end of workshop testing and early release days.

We will continue with testing in the even classes and continue with projects for each grade level this week. We will also discuss and practice those skills that were missed most on the workshop tests.

Please click on the links  (in blue) below for Read 180 and also for System 44 books. Students will use their lunch number for their username and password

Our focus toward the end of the week will be to complete the writing assignments on Elements of: Narrative Writing in 8th grade, Informational in 6th grade, and Argument Writing in 7th grade.
