January 29th Week

Parents, I want to first thank you for signing up for a conference time. If you have not done so please do so. This will be a meaningful time to discuss our half way through the year marks.

This week we dived into Geometry, compare and contrasting difference genres, and working on our opinion pieces. We are making the best of our time in class to prepare us for what is coming in the following months. I want to encourage my students to log onto websites to practice different skills. Readworks.org and learningfarm.com are great.

Thank you parents for all that you do.
