It's hard to believe, but we are already in to October and nearly wrapping up our first unit of the year. Students took a short stories assessment on Thursday where they had to analyze theme, tone, conflict and irony. They had to identify plot elements and make inferences and support those inferences with background knowledge. Additionally, they were asked to define unfamiliar words using context clues. Graded tests will be returned on Tuesday, 10/10, so ask your child how they performed on this test! Students are working hard this week on their "Define My Success" Essays where they are reflecting on their goals for the future and how they will achieve those goals. These essays will be presented at the 10/25 Cookout and Demonstration Night. Hope to see you all there!
