Hello Students and Parents!!

I'm glad you are checking out my website! Let me know what you think, and what I can add to make this a helpful tool for you!

We have about three weeks left in the first card marking.  In Language Arts, we will be focusing on short story and elements of fiction.  Vocabulary and MEAP preparation will continue, as well.  Remember to turn in your reading log each and every Monday for 5 easy points!!  Imagine getting points for just curling up with a book of choice and reading!  As always, the parent signature is required.

Remember students, that we have a vocabulary quiz on Friday, October 19, 2001.  Study and review the worksheet you received on Wednesday!

Our team fund raiser begins on October 19. We will have a kick-off in the Large Group Room during CUT on that day.  The success of our venture depends on your participation.  We have plans for some exciting trips, starting with "A Christmas Carol" at Meadowbrook Theatre on December 6.  More details to come on that.  The funds we earn will help with the cost of the trips.

All of my 7th grade students will be trained for the Internet this week and will receive their passports.  Remember that you must have your passport displayed each and every time you go online at school.

Social Studies students spent some time in the Computer Lab researching and completing a K-W-L on the Salem Witch Trials.  An interesting video and discussion will follow.
We will begin Chapter Five as we head to the American Revolution.  We will continue our focus on Core Democratic Values, and practice with extended response questions.  Try out the mini-quiz below for a chance to earn five extra credit points.

Looking forward to much more wonderful learning in the weeks ahead!
